CheeseForSteeze Honestly, if you can't 5-0 the Westmark, you shouldn't be worried about the differences between the Blacklist and it. Grab whichever one you can find in your size unless you are truly limited by boot size. As in like maybe less than 8.5 (probably stick to Westmark) or bigger than 11.5 (stick to BL). Other than that, if you want a true all-mountain board (especially if you ride lots of deep powder) the Coda will be a better board.

If you ride nothing but low speed jibs and S/M jumps, the Draft is an option.

readimag I would say the blacklist is a little stiffer then the westmark not much though.

The blacklist is also a midwide, and from what people say, it goes BL/WM/CODA in terms of flex. Coda being the stiffest, but not stiff by any means.

dreampow I would love to try out the blacklist or the coda,

Seems people are saying the blacklist can do most of what the coda can. Would I be right in thinking the coda is a little stiffer and more all mountain oriented, while the blacklist has more of a park oriented all mountain feel?

Any other differences?

I don't give a shit because I switch out my boards so much, I'm a gear whore. But for those who keep their board 2-3 years, it's important. So I think it's good info.

I'm not worried trust me. I don't even think about it until I get home and look at it. I just kept hearing about it, then when I came home and flipped my board, yup, there it was

Other than that, I think the board is a blast. I really had a ton of fun on the board. The arbor system is pretty damn good, except I had to adjust on flatbasing a bit.

Another friend needed a suggestion, I pointed him towards a Riders Choice. But he's 200lbs, I wish he was lighter so I could hop on it 158 is just too much board for me.
