F1EA 161w is good.

You have a few pounds on me. At 170-180lbs and 6'4 I thought the 161w in a Jones MT would offer some of the playfulness I'm looking for but still have the control for the all mountain riding.

I'll be in the PNW, and hope to be getting more into jumps this season.

Oldman 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..........

Seatown Went with a Jones MT. We'll see!

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

Oldman 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.

Seatown 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...

Any opinions?

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
