So the sizing chart for me says 163 is spot on, but it seems strange to me that most folks take a MUCH smaller board. Also it's strange that 163 is the max on this board, since I'm only 185lbs and...

Okay, so if I'm looking at the Magtek One, I don't want wide so there's either 159 or 163. Sizing charts suggest I'm 163 (85lbs, 6'1) but folks here say that's too long. Any opinions - or maybe it...

Just two more questions, and I'm ready!

@neni, sorry for missing that! :)
Okay, I'm looking at MT Twin vs One Magtek. The Magtek seems to have more aggressive magnetraction - seems like it holds better in ice. Is there a downside to that?...
