that 90/10 is more than likely how I will ride. I just like to ocassionally hit the park and do a few small features. Thanks also to everyone else on their input as well.

I think I've narrowed it down to the Arbor Roundhouse or The Custom(not X). Any suggestions on bindings for either of these 2?

stoepstyle I pretty much learned how to snowboard on a 164 Santa Cruz wide pan head. Youll be fine

buggravy I don't know anything about the first 2 boards, but can sort of speak to the Legacy-R. I say sort of because I own the SL-R, which is the "normal" width version of that board. Anyway, I was more or less in your position when I bought it, and was also concerned that the board would be over my head. My experience with the board has been the exact opposite. I was coming off a Ride DH, which is pretty flexible and forgiving. I immediately found the SL-R easier and more fun to ride, and felt like my riding improved dramatically in a short period of time after getting it. Super responsive, super stable, but I never felt like the board was riding me. Easy is really the best way I can describe it.

what does being a burton hater have to do with this topic?

wrathfuldeity Advanced boards are rideable. However to get the intended performance out the of the tech/design that was put in, you need to be fairly aggressive otherwise the board may feel abit out of control because it it taking you for a ride, i.e. it is wanting to do more that you are comfortable/capable of. At least it will have the capacity for your improvement if that's style of riding you want to do.

lilfoot1598 The Roundhouse is a pretty stiff all-mountain board and does not perform well in the park. Check out the K2 Darkstar Wide.
