|Redline||162cm seems a bit small for your size. Unless you're riding in the midwest, or jumping a lot of stuff. I'm 6'4" ~ 200 -220 and anything less than a 165cm leaves me wanting more edge at speed. My park/all mountain board is a 167cm and my flat out charging board is a 173cm. Seeing as you already got a board this is useless info though. Enjoy the ride, the Jones boards have my interests peaked. They seem pretty legit.|

Excellent choice. I predict you will be really pleased with the MT. It is one of those boards that does everything very well as a solid "All Mountain" board should.
Enjoy staring at it for the next 6 months......
It's ok to touch it every so often..........

|dsciulli19||Get a Custom Flying V or comparable board from another manufacturer. If you REALLY want pop get the Camber instead of the Flying V|

Assuming your boot size is US 12, you are on the edge of needing a Wide board.
Hopefully others here with experience on the Gnu and Nitro will chime in and let you know if you do need a wide board from those brands.
With regards to the Burton Flying V profile; in good conditions it is a really fun experience. However on hard pack / icy conditions it is a loose, sketchy ride that for some is less than confidence building.

Thanks for the replies guys...
Went into a shop and talked to someone and looked at some boards... I'm now looking at:
Process Flying V
Gnu Carbon Credit
Really like the lightness and flex of the V, and read that the Nitro Team Gullwing is comparable...
Also, for a 6'4" 170-175lbs boot size 12 guy, I can't decide between 159 and 162 on the Flying V, and 158W and 162W on the Gnu.

|cav0011||Look at the yes. Jones, Burton, Rossignol, and salomon. Look at those brands and you will be in good hands. You want something targeting all mountain|
