|kctahoe||I ended up getting the 164 charlie slasher, i just wanna say i love this board so far, does great on the groomers getting to and from the pow, i rode it twice this week in these insane tahoe storms and it floats pretty well, but your right almost feels a little small in the really deep stuff we have been getting in tahoe this last week.|

|wrathfuldeity||I'm 5'6" and 180, went with the 164 slasher...works just fine trees/bowl/chutes, infact seems just a tad small on really deep poo like 24+", my regular crusier boards are a 158 freeride option and 159 banana. imo, in deep trees...got to float that shit...it sucks to be too short and hiking/swimming in the woods.|

|kctahoe||Another question, what do you guys think of the Rome notch, anybody have this board or rode in powder?|

|kctahoe||Man that's a tough call, is the 164 very hard for you to throw around? What do you mainly ride, trees or big bowls?|

|linvillegorge||It's a pow stick. Raised big shovel nose and a stiffer tapered tail. Trust me, it would float you just fine. It's not just about the size. If you're doing mainly tree runs, I'd stick with the 158.|

|kctahoe||Mainly tree runs, I currently ride a 156 as my all mountain board, and a158 just doesn't seem like that big of a jump for a pow board.|

I'm 5'11" 190 or so and went with the 164.
It depends on what you're riding. Are you hitting primarily open bowls or are you hitting lots of trees. I don't have any problem throwing the 164 around.

Which size pow board should I get?
Hey I'm thinking about picking up a Capita Charlie slasher for my pow board, I'm 5'8" and 180, would you guys recommend the 158 or 164? Thanks!
