I'm 10.5 shoe size would I have overhang trouble on a 153?

|crazed||Picking up a new board for this upcoming season. Trying to decide on which board: 2012 Capita Ultrafear or 2012 Westmark? I'm gonna get some Burton Reflex Genesis bindings to pair up with the new board. Which would you guys prefer? I currently have a 2008 Capita Horrorscrope and 2011 NS Evo.|

Alright, this will be my final update for this since I managed to ride through some pow 8" average fresh at Sunday River with some deeper stashes 16-20" in places. It floated, as predicted, and any time I ended up going over the nose was a result of rider error, either misjudging the terrain or just being too lazy to react fast enough. I don't know if I'd call this a powder boat, especially for those of you who have access to bottomless, unconsolidated snowpack, but considering the size, I think it would do damned well. For shallow powder, it floats great and keeps plane with very little effort.
The base continues to hold up and while not as durable as I hoped (it definitely show its wear) this is a board that could easily go 50-75 days as long as you are just abusing the hell out of it. Rails are fine but rock or even thin coverage will do decent damage.

I epoxy'd the little chip using only 2 part Loctite as the filler. It held up fine and seems to pretty damned robust. I filed it down post application and curing and I think this is going to last.
I'm pretty happy with the durability so far, even if it isn't really above average. The base continues to get gouges but consider the shit I've been riding over and the fact I've spent several days doing nothing but hiking jibs, the abuse resistance can be considered at least "adequate" or "average".

|CheeseForSteeze||It'd be a toss up. With Grip-Tech, like jliu says, you might be able to get away with it but the wash is that even the 159 has a fairly narrow waist (25.3cm). Maybe try the Blacklist: the 157 has a more reasonable 26.0cm waist.|

|jliu||From a boot overhang perspective...I think sz 11 you'll be okay as the griptech side cut gives you more room for your feet. Not sure about your riding style though. At 200lb, it'll be purely a park stick...others can comment on that. Coda will give you more all mtn at your weight.|
