I am 5.83 ft and 175 pounds.
This board will be my all mountain lover 70% with slight park 30%.
Afraid that the 156 will be slightly too big and not playful enough for me, after all I rode a 148cm JibStick with RETT system for the bigger part of the last season on icy All Mtn and Pow.
No problem, just trying to help and i've made mistake, i contacted this distributor and they can't send this boards to another country, this is the rule from Never Summer.

I don't think I could settle for a pure freeride board. I enjoy jibs, butters and popping off anything way too much.

EDIT: After reading up on the Arbor Westmark, I am strongly leaning towards it. Sounds like an amazing board!
Hope you checked out the review video as it seems to put Skate Banana at the top of all the banana's. It's a real favourite. Plus it got good wood like a bunch of years in a row.

TRS is basically just a more stiff version of SB BTX.

Thanks David, would you recommend me the Westmark? According to your review you were quite happy with the board? I could get the Westmark for 300.
I sent you PM with that.

I was happy enough with the Blacklist that I went out and bought one like 2 weeks later

I am not sure if this distinction will translate well: but, a lot of companies make "all mountain freestyle" boards, which in my opinion are all-mountain boards that have just enough versatility that you can enjoy riding them in the park, too. The Blacklist struck me as, kind of the "opposite", that is, a "freestyle all mountain" board. It's definitely a freestyle oriented board, but it's got enough versatility that you can take it just about anywhere outside the park, too.

So, if you ride hard in the park, or if you ride skate-style on the rest of the mountain, or if you do a little of everything, it's a solid choice.

david_z hey Ayukreizi

yeah with a 9.5 boot the Westmark is going to be what you want instead of the Blacklist (which is just the wider version of the Westmark). It is a park board but assuming the Westmark rides similar to the Blacklist, it should be capable of handling almost anything you throw at it.

Ayukreizi Hey David, I am a big fan of your and Leo's blog.
I was looked up the Omni and its 420€ in Germany. It's an okay price but at the same level as other high quality boards. Not sure if it's worth it.

I was also looking into Arbor Westmark/Blacklist.

I feel like the Blacklist would be too wide for me with my 9.5 32 Lashed boots and Rome 390 BOSS L/XL binding or am I mistaken?
The Westmark seems to be more of a park board.

Ugh... so many boards, so many choices...

Thanks Kung Martin, if I will go Libtech I will probably look into Skate Banana or TRS as it suits my style better.

KungMartin maybe this'll help you decide between the lib techs.



edit: oh, the TRS isn't in there. still though.
