I think its about as heavy or lightweight as any board in a similar size.
oh, also, I was riding it the other day in firm conditions in the park and moved my front foot forward. I did get better edge hold. Still not as good as my capita with 0 camber, but much better than previous.

|stunt66||my nug with cartels is super light compared to my capita doa 152 with unions. his bindings must be ancient if it feels heavy.|

|JasonFox||Question here guys ?, I went out with my friend and he had a Nug, I think it's a size 140-150 somethings, but it's really heavy .. I don't know because his binding do anything with it, but I have the 160 NS protox with flow bingding, and my board still feel lighter than his. So you guys feel the same thing about the Nug board ?|

I have a 148 directional Nug from last year as well. I ride that board more than all my other boards combined. Sure it can beat you up a bit when the snow gets chopped up, but I ride it on pow days, ice days, bluebird slush days.
Sometimes I bring one of my real pow boards with me to the hill, and will ride that once there are some tracks, but usually start out in the fresh on the Nug.
Try weighting your front foot more, it helps a lot with edge hold on the icier days.
I quite like the Nug, so much so that my second most ridden board is the Harvest (camber Nug). Amazing technology.

|stunt66||I've been riding my 142 nug for the last couple months now and have to say im pretty impressed with the board. Haven't had it in any pow but for everything else it does the job.|

So I wanted to give another update now that I've had a chance to ride some pow on it.
Conditions last night: upper twentys, snowing super hard, about a foot on the ground with more in some spots, less in others.
I definitely wouldn't call this a pow board. Especially compared to my 162 Gyrator. I will say that it does ride really well in the deep stuff though. I felt like I had all of the float of the Gyrator up until it got flat. It felt like it was doing fine, but then I noticed my back leg starting to get real tired. I haven't had that feeling since I picked up the Gyrator last year. I think the float was mostly there, but I was pretty worried about the nose dipping under while I was just cruising along on not steep terrain. so i'd end up in the back seat. With my Gyrator, I can just center my weight and let the board do all the work. I won't say I was getting really bad leg burn, but it was definitely something I noticed.
I also didn't feel like I had any problems going off of drops up to 8'. Some of the landings weren't so steep but I wasn't worried about going over the front end on those landings. Maybe its just a matter of getting my weight forward and just trusting the board to not dive on flatter terrain.
What I did get out of it was that it was still a very playful board because of its size and weight. Its easy to just whip around wherever you are. whereas the Gyrator is definitely slower to move around and you can feel the weight and length of it.
Suffice it to say the Gyrator stays in the quiver for the deepest of days.

The first day I was riding the nug, I actually felt like I could charge pretty hard on it.
Of course, just one day, because I felt like a little sissy on the ice the 2nd day. lol
