157 NS proto for me (with the base bevel changed from factory 0 to 1/1). Handles the sort of riding I do really nicely. I'd also be happy with a GNU - Riders choice.

Not sure on bindings, I've got union contacts, but I'm not entirely happy with them...

Sorry, forgive this NooB for my ignorance and the attempt at thread jacking,..

But, Seriously? You can actually turn on that thing???? ...IN TREES?? It looks like it's got an 8 or 10 inch setback to the bindings!!! I could see it goin' Mach 10 bombing a straight line down slope, or maybe even creating enough lift on it's surface area so you turn into a "Glider" after clearing the knuckle, but it looks like it would be a MONSTER to try and maneuver?

The setup that i bought at the end of last season: LibTech T.Rice with Flow NXT-FRX bindings. I don't do any park riding - unless I take a wrong turn - and this combo handles the rest rather well.

Haha, your Proto looks like a childs toy.
Do you know the brand or was it custom made? I know someone who would be highly interested

I'm pretty sure that's the Rad-Air Tanker 200 BA mentioned earlier in this thread.
Check their website for some behemoth boards.

Edit: Neni, for shame! Their international headquarters is in Switzerland!

I think technically BA mentioned a 210, but yea this is a 200cm Rad Air Tanker. Aluminum topsheet for uber dampening.

Pretty sure if you take it into the trees you have to just run over them.

The Radd Air Tankers are actually really flimsy which gives them a lot of play so you can toss it around. I don't recommend people ride them but riding something that big just requires knowing how to exaggerate your movements. Big boards aren't for everyone and there's that "special" breed that wants them. I've ridden stuff bigger than 170 and you go really really fast and hold an edge really well. Jibbing is kind of hard.

Biggest I've ridden was a Coal 168, thats big enough for my 120lbs . Yes, defenitely had to exaggerate my movements slow turns were bit hard, but the faster, the easier. Was pretty amazed by the carving abilities of this board.

Anyway, the Tanker could be interestig for the husband. He was thinking about getting a 180 next. Hope, I find a review on it of you


EDIT: nope... found no reviews, neither here nor anywhere online more recent than 2008.
Mind to give some more impressions? We know how Custom X, Raptor, Highlife, Flagship ride, (but at "normal" lenghs around 158-164). Anything comparable? Would you recomnend it to a guy who only rides pow and good old euro carves and loves insane speeds. No park/jib
