DBLdangerTILT I butter the shit out of my 161 coda (6'2" 190). The reverse camber makes it extremely easy. From what you are saying, I would have went with a westmark. Personally, I have a 56 revolver which I'll probably give up for a westmark at the end of the year.

burritosandsnow hands down Arbors grip tech system is the best edge tech Ive ridden on any alt camber board .. the draft is super flexy, light weight, and fun. The westmark is a tad stiffer... IMO if you are used to a stiff board you may want to go with the Westmark ( Im not saying the Westmark is stiff its just that the Draft may be way too soft for someone used to a stiff board) .. you wil find it plenty soft. If you normally ride softer boards go with the Draft

Nivek I do not, though I wouldn't mind that at all. They make a solid board and I support companies that make a good product.

Vario grips between your feet, Griptech right underfoot. Neither is better, just different. I personally prefer underfoot.

Do you work for arbor nivek? :P...haha...yea you are definitely swaying me in that direction

The direct answer to that question would be all mountain freestyle...however, at my weight i figure the evo is is playful enough to fool around when im board on east coast "mountains" but the dual rocker + vpg lets me carve groomers and steeps. I think I may still end up getting the coda as the evo is quite a bit more...but im just a bit worried around the continous rocker and carving...though griptech is suppose to offset that...ah i wish there were brands outside of burton at product demos near me :P

If it helps, I'll be mounting it up with my Union Forces within the next 2 hours. Going to do a carpet demo to test the flex. I'll post my thoughts if you want to hear them. Like I mentioned before, I've only had pure camber until now. So the flex difference with the R/C should be noticeable.

Nefarious I was dead set on the Westmark. Had it added to the cart and ready to go. Good ol' tax return came through and apparently my inner desires were with Never Summer. Evo is out for delivery right now. With an Evo, would you recommend different bindings? I still think the 390 bosses would be a proper fit considering the type of board. Either way, I appreciate your feedback and time.
