Bobbo3234 Mid season review - can't complain about what I purchased. The quality gear has really impacted my riding. Everything I struggled with last year is a lot easier, I think a lot of it has to do with the responsive bindings. The long board is a little tricky in the tight areas, but has definately been a plus with all the snow we have had. I have 5 days in Whistler and 5+ days in around the Seattle area and just want more. The only struggle has been waiting for the roads to open because of the winter weather.

stunterguy nice setup

Mr. Right That board is going to be SO SICK in deep powder I'm 5'11" and usually about 180lbs and my Burton Bullet 164 just feels awkwardly large on anything but the deep powder. You are a bit larger of a guy so it won't be as bad for you but damn! That's a big board.

Bobbo3234 thanks for the boosts of confidence. I think i'll just give it a go and hope that it isn't too much board to handle

GoinBig Don't worry about it being to long, unless you are a veteran park rider, it wont hold you back an extreme amount, especially with your dimensions, I'm 6'0 and 220lbs and I ride a 168, my transition into the park has been smooth no less, it will just feel that much better if I ever go to a smaller board.

Slaughterhouse A 172 will make a Titan out of you! The board will be a missile on the runs so hang on and enjoy the ride! I'm actually jealous!!!

Bobbo3234 then again, how much fresh stuff am i actually going to be able to ride...

PaoloSmythe the board you have will be stable at speed and sluggish at all other times.

if you are gonna ride park, you'll need to be super aggressive. that set up sounds good for frsh powder days on the steeps and deeps.

for me, doing silly tricky stuff, i have a 159; and when the snow gods smile i have a 166.... i am not much lighter or shorter than you.

you will need to adjust to your set up, but you'll be fine (and exhausted! )

Bobbo3234 Yeah, that's what I thought. Seems like the longest boards would be in the 159-161 length. Guess I can use my old board to just mess around with.

I guess that is another question...with the longer board, am i getting everything out of this board that I can. Or would a shorter board allow me to utilize the Custom better?

rrrtx 172 in the park??? You might have the longest board there but anythings possible. 172 is too long for park.
