|brandon684||I found a good buy on a used 159 Bataleon Locust. Would this pretty much do all that I am looking for? (BTW, I really appreciate the help and quick responses)|

|BurtonAvenger||Go with a 57.|

|brandon684||The more I read about the bataleon goliath, the more I like it, but the sizes are only in 157, 157W and 161, 161w, which are between where I was looking for (158-160). What size would you reccomend?|

Second season, looking for new board
Last year was my first year. I spent some money on boots (upper price Vans) and bindings (Ride Delta), but when I came to the board, I ended up with a 160 Rossignol District, which plain and simple, sucks. I rode my brothers Nitro, and it handled way better. So, anyway, here are my stats:
6', 175 pounds. 10.5 boots
I can do back and frontside 1's no problem and I can ride down the hill with ease.
I like to "freeride".
I spend my time like this:
60% trees/carving groomers
30% small jumps/kickers
10% rails - would like to do more (just didn't have the confidence)
Plus, whenever there is nice, fresh, powder, I hit that as much as I can.
I am not as worried about price, but I want to get a board that can pretty much do it all and will last me for a couple of years. I keep looking at the reverse camber stuff, but I am still pretty up in the air about what board to go with. I keep looking at the 157.5 GNU Rider's Choice BTX, and that seems to be the front runner at this point. What do you guys think?
