Remember when i was selling my billy goat, and offered you a try at it. Why didnt you at least try it?

Also, since i joined this forum i have been really picky with boards. Like i would believe shit people would say about this board even if i didnt even notice it. Id probably be still on my 153 dc if it wasn't for this forum...

but i agree. I hated my lobster at first, now i fucking love it. Feels like i don't even need another board....

Pick Your Line: Rider Weight and Height

I've been riding the 2013 PYL 156. I'm thinking it's too soft for me and I should've got the 159. I'm about 170lbs and 5'8". For this board, I use it for crappy groomer days and light powder. I have a Fish for the deep and tree run days.

I heard the 2014 has been tweaked. Its flex is noticeably stiffer and has a more pronounced camber. I was wondering for those of you who have ridden the PYL 13 or 14, what your weight and height was for the 156, 159 or 161?

Having spent time on boards such as the arbor coda, ns raptor, rossi krypto, and a few burtons. I must say this is one hell of a board.

This board is unsinkable in the deep stuff, if you set it back almost all the way, its got amazing float and isnt too slashy/surfy. The slight taper isnt even noticeable with the mellow magne, but if you get it on ice, you know its mellow as it can get a bit squirrely. I found it super stable at very high speeds (thanks skitracks for letting me know when i break 100!), super damp in the chop and real easy to stomp with. It is a real fun board that is great to take out in the deep, if you were looking to add it to a quiver, it would be a great fit between a dedicated pow stick (hovercraft, pintails and swallowtails etc) and an aggressive mountain board (krypto, BSOD etc). It is a big mountain board and doenst feel like anything special on short runs or hardpack, but for the longer runs, deep snow and gnarly terrain it is the shit...this board stays home unless 2 of those 3 are met.

ARSENALFAN, I think you might be right at the end, if you really start to push it, this board will take you there, chutes, steeps and heavy chop are this things strong points not to mention pow. If you are hitting up Sunshine and Loiuse give it a whirl somewhere with a higher pitch and see what you think then...take it somewhere a bit more gnarly like KickingHorse, Fernie or Revelstoke...thats where it shines. (also, pm me if youre lookin for a dude to shred with outa calgary!)
Have to agree here. I have the 12/13 161 and its insanely fast on the groomers. Don't really notice the chop that I do on some of the other boards i've ridden in recent memory (Mountain twin, Devun Pro- granted they're shorter and softer).
Not much to report on he powder, mammoth has been suffering lately, But it did fine on some of the hikes I did. I'm sure it'll do great when it gets deep again.

can you compare it to the krypto? I've been rocking that board all year and I'm looking for something to go faster on gnarly stuff.

I just got a few days on my 2015 Pick Your Line. What an awsome board!
I didnt get any powder days, mostly groomed runs and icey lumpy Australian snow.

Felt very stable going fast. Seemed to like agressive carving.

Now I cant wait to get it to Japan in January!
