BA, I was wondering if you could tell me what year Bataleon Goliath you tested? Do you know if there is any major difference between the 07/08 to 08/09 besides the graphics? Thanks in advance!

I'm looking at an 07/08. This would be my 2nd board, and my 2nd season. I have an old Sims Fader snowboard that I bought a long time ago and just used it for the 1st time last season. Now sure how it compares to the boards these days. Mostly looking to freeride as a beginner/intermediate.

Also, I'm 5'9", 140lbs. Would you recommend a 153 or a 155?

Thanks in advance!

I don't think there is any besides the graphic. A quik google search by the year of the board should yield the specs you are looking for. I am selling an 06 Goliath and was looking for differences between 06 and newer models...don't recall finding any but you should chk for sure.

BA,
How does the Bataleon TBT stacks up against NS RC? From my understanding it's similar but different. I've been following the NS RC for a lil while and BAM.. Came upon this whole TBT and everyone who been on it say it's the best out there.. Share your expertness please..

Probably gonna catch some static for asking about this, but BurtonAvenger how do you feel about the Technine Jib? I saw that the girls version won the good wood award (if that actually matters for anything I have no clue). My friend who is starting snowboarding wants to either grab that or something similar. His main reason is because he likes the graphics though....

Rice check this out maybe it'll help you a bit more. The Angry Snowboarder: Triple Base Technology is not Rocker

T9 boards are straight up soft pieces of crap. I doubt you'll find one in a shop they never ship shit on time. Frankly why bother but if he wants to be a fashion customer get it and plead ignorance.

Thanks for the quick response, I'll be sure to let him know and he will most likely listen to me(well hopefully anyways). There were a bunch of other boards that I was showing him that you wrote reviews on that he was kinda diggin anyways.

Hey BA ...have not seen you post in a while...?? your presence has been missed.
Thank you for Posting the TBT/Rocker link.... as I grow weary of answering questions from people who think TBT is rocker... thank you for this time saver.. good work

I might suggest that this info be posted with your reviews so that it will not get buried within this thread...

This way, you, I or others won't have to answer the same questions asked repeatedly on this site>>>>

glad to see you are back. again, thanks and well done.
