I had the 5'5/165 but rides like a 157 which was like a fast pocket rocket for me, just a great board with a huge nose and now own Pencil plus that wants to carve all the time. Much wider so little slower edge to edge but still super fast and since its the Plus, insanely light with Salomon Quantums on
Both carve hard and are great boards. Built by NBL in the same factory. It depends if you want wider board or not.
They fuckin' rock, love my Dupraz'
Bought a standard a few years ago and loved it. Sold it, bought a D+.
The D+ is awesome to, but in a completely different way than the standard.
The D+ is like an alpine board for my svelte weight on it, more business than party.
So I tracked down another standard last year or the year before.
It's my go to deck, it goes everywhere I go.
Usually bring a couple with me when I go, but the standard is ALWAYS one of them.
You should grab one Goldy locks, just make sure you get the right stiffness for what you wanna do on it.
Most sizes have 3 different levels of stiffness.
But they all have the same shape, regardless of the size.
I searched for 3 years before I found my first one
