I'm 6'2" 310lbs. I have personally had great experiences with past models of the Nitro Magnum. I plan on buying a Never Summer Legacy-R pretty soon though.

I am pretty close to your stats 6'6" a little heavier with a 14 boot. I'm currently riding a Burton Custom X wide 164 and just picked up the T6 164W but havent gotten to ride it. Both have been great for me.

Yesterday was my 2nd day of breaking in my Arbor Roundhouse. I love it and think it would be a good match for you.

Do you plan to do park/jumps with your new board or just freeride on your new one? Sounds like you need to answer that to help decide if you want more freeride or more all mountain.

My runner up choices where:

Bataleon Jam
Never Summer Titan

I am really looking to know if anybody has an idea which is the best brand of wideboard on the market. any info would help, I currently ride a Burton Baron 167, basically once I get my new setup it's going to be my park/beataround board. thanks!

Dude... there is none other than this. I'm 6'3", 250lbs, and for me this board is the best thing since sliced bread for aggressive freeriding. Period.

i would say the rome flag, i love my rome agent and can deff rep for their quality.

all i can say about risers is don't get em or use em. much better to get a wide board and not take away from the boards preformance or feel with risers

You're such a poser... you were all about Capita until I schooled you that Elan owns them, now it's Rome? Pffffffff... Rome... puh-leeeze....

I'm the same size and weight as you with size 15 boots, I'm riding a NS Revolver for my park/mountain board and I love it, so I'd say go for the Legacy-R for a more all mountain type board, you'll heard no complaints from me about Never Summer boards
