dantech You should give it more time. Maybe you are just used to a stiff aggressive camber board. I know when I went from camber to hybrid rocker I instantly liked it. But I was coming from a soft camber board. It's a different feeling and I over rotated a few times going from edge to edge because of the new pivot feeling between the feet...but you get used to controling it after a few runs.

Who has got you thinking you need a 160+ at 145lbs?

Just out of curiosity what rossi board and size? Thought we were talking about a T-Rice?

CheeseForSteeze Newer boards can be ridden shorter because their effective edges are longer proportional to their overall length. Think of a car's wheelbase versus its actual length. The wheelbase is going to the primary influence on the dynamics of the vehicle. That's the point of blunting a snowboard's shape.

In regards to powder, a blunted shape might hurt performance slightly, but a rocker or rocker-hybrid profile will more than make up for it.

grafta Ok, forget all this 'go shorter' shit on a R/C deck for a minute.

I'm 175lbs and ride a 09-10 158 Evo and it floats great. I've been told I could go shorter if I was doing park/jibbing a lot (which i'm not).

Now does a 161.5 sound good for your 145lbs?

I believe Snowolf rides bout the same size as me in a Gnu and hits big and deep stuff (and is heavier than me)....

Dunno man, believe who you want or better yet demo some diff sizes. We are just some randoms from teh interwebz. What do we know

skip11 Try it out for a week or 2 if you still don't like it then sell it.
