In my previous posts I was searching for a freeride powder board. I now realize why this was an unanswerable question. I am now trying to decide between 3 boards for mostly backcountry freeriding and going back on the runs to get back to lifts. I am 6'7" and I weigh 190 lbs and I wear size 13 or 14 thirty two boots (I forget the size).

Jones Flagship (carbon or wooden)
Virus Avalanche
Kessler Alpine/Cross/Ride

Any other board suggestions would be appreciated, but I need a board that is excellent for all mountain freeriding and can handle powder. Any suggestions about any of these boards would help.

I think you should get at least a SwellPanik, or Virus LaGlisse. Anything else will not suit your riding level.
Or you can give J.Jones a call and ask for a custom Flagship with titanium butterfly core and stabilizers to handle all of your power. Do you know his phone?

You don't think a 168 w flagship would be enough? For what reason would they not work? I do not know his phone number. Thanks for the input.

For the ammount of coin you're looking to drop, you should call Donek, or Prior and discuss a custom deck. Your selections don't make much sense and they can help walk you through what you really want, then build it.

A custom deck sounds awesome, but why donek or prior. Are they the only companies that do custom decks?

Kessler does as well...
But that's not the point... guys... stop leading him on erratic paths (though it's funny :giggle:) hes not susceptible for sarcasm and will end up riding kind of a titanium teflon kitchen door .
Shred, you had the answers in the other thread. Ride your board another season, advance, demo some decks and find out what you actually like to ride. Take it easy, step by step.

No I got the sarcasm. I didnt follow any of their "advice". I know what I like to ride, I'm looking for an excellent free ride board that has good float in powder.

You already have one - your Cobra. Will meet your riding needs for years to come.

Now stop starting all these new threads. I know it is summer and all, but it is just a waste of time.
