luckboxing What size did you end up going with? I picked up a 161 Pick Your Line in the spring, but lost a decent bit of weight over the summer, now I'm down to your weight and wondering if the board is too big for me.

I'm only planning on riding it when we get a decent bit of snow up here in Whistler, have a Never Summer Legacy for the rest of the days (planning on switching that board though).

JHeagz I actually didn't realize how old this thread is...That's really helpful to know that you like it after riding it. Thanks!

I went with the PYL. Couldn't be happier with it!

Nivek More specialized would be a Rdie Berzerker, maybe a Signal Omni, bataleon Goliath, Flow Drifter, or a K2 Protohype.

Shmeal bump?

I need to make a decision pretty soon if I want to take advantage of a friend's discount.

Shmeal The Never Summer Premier F1 looks good too. I'm ruling out the Nidecker purely because it's so much more expensive than the competition. I also ruled out the barracuda because I don't want to be forced to get new bindings.

I'm looking at these boards now:

Yes Pick Your Line
Never Summer Premier F1
Arbor Coda

The inserts aren't set back as in they are still centered on the sidecut, but the nose is longer than the tail.

So this board will excel at what you are aiming for, or are you really looking for a full on freeride board?
I'm looking for something between a full on freeride board and an all mountain board. I want better powder performance than a normal all mountain board, but better groomer behavior than a freeride. The coda looks good, but it seems more of a jack of all trades board compared to the Yes PYL. I have the draft for jumps and park, so I would prefer to get something a little more specialized.

I've heard good things about never summer, anything in their lineup that would suit my needs?

I wasn't aware that the coda was a particularly strong board for groomers and powder, basing this opinion off of the good ride review:

Arbor Coda Snowboard Review

I also don't plan to do too much switch riding with this next board, so I thought that the coda wouldn't be as good of a fit.
