Speed 4/5: This thing hauls pretty goodStability 5/5: The dampening and stiffness power through rough terrain like a dreamControl 5/5: Despite that it's a beefier board it's super easy to turn and makes big deep turns.Overall this is a fun board. I would recommend it especially if your home mountain has lots of open steep terrain. If you're a speed freak like me you won't be disappointed. For something that's similar but a little more snappy/responsive and just a bit less fast/stable take a look at the Raptor.As for sizing, I'm 5'10 and 170 and I used the 163. This size was spot on, it's made to be a little longer as a freeride/big mountain board.
This is a review from a friend of mine:For an at best intermediate snowboarder like myself this board proved very capable in the hard-packed / slushy snow conditions.I'm 6'4, approximately 200 lbs, and found the board turned crisply and felt well balanced.In some trying conditions I thought the board carved well and rarely skated.
