Always rode a deck a size smaller than I should have, fell in love with the 150 Burton nug last season. Every other board I tried after the nug felt a little long and clumsy in comparison. Maybe it is just a gimmick, but it felt pretty good to me, easier to whip it around in spins, yet still carved groomers and held up in powder.

Read a review of a Rome board that had this similar tech (smaller size/lighter yet retains some effective edge of a larger deck). What other companies are doing this in 2014? Any comments/opinions on this tech are appreciated.

Glad to see another Nug lover. I ride the 142 Nug, it's so freakin' small but I love it! But I heard K2 also does reduction tech, I believe it's called Jib Tip and they let you downsize 5cm.

The Fastplant is very easy to ride as a smaller board as well, when i purchased mine 2 years ago, i ended up with a 154 and i am not so small... ;)

Jones Hovercraft and YES 420 all claim shorter sizes with larger surface areas....but they are very specific pow boards.
