Looks like there's one local to me for sale, thanks! I test drove a Kessler Ride 163 last year, and it was bloody good, but I like the Virus more. The Kessler handled choppy groomers well, but it was too cambered for off piste/powder riding for my linking. Also, I think the Virus can carve harder.

Overall, I think the Virus is a better board, with the Kessler having the edge on choppy groomers. If that's what you're riding all day, the Kessler is probably better.

I think its necessary to ride a the board first before you buy it.

You won't notice it on slush or pow, but when it's on hard pack it's very unpredictable if you don't weight either the nose or tail in order to engage either cambered section with the snow surface!!!!!

It can easily catch ya off guard when ya flatbasin sections that are often used to relax before/after givin ya board a belt!!!!!

The cambered section is prone to grabbing as opposed to a pure rocker that has no such section that "sticks out", so to speak!!!!!

* Many like this profile, but I don't see any advantage to it????? RCR I see the benefits, along with pure camber, or pure rocker!!!!!

It also feels harder to get the front edge to bite on high speed chop, maybe because the board is softening up.
Wait for next season's Rossignol One Magtek. They're going from "7M" to "5S" mellow magnetraction. Should be stiff enough for you. I've been riding their Templar which has 5S and it's quite the difference. The Templar would be too soft for you though.

ISSUU - Rossignol SNBD 14.15 by snowboardscatalog

My current go to is a Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix (C2BTX). Which I like a lot except for flat basing, where the rocker tends to have a mind of its own.

For what it's worth, I'm 6'0 205 lbs on a 161 PYL and love it. I would say at your size, the 159 is the way to go.
