I got this snowboard last year (and it was much more expensive :(... ) the dealer that i got it from said it was a huge upgrade. from freestyle to all mountain. if you want to go fast and not lose control of your board THIS IS IT. i had problems with my last snowboard, if i hit a certain speed it'd shake. this board has no problem bombing down a mountain at all. I chose this over the mens burton custom. I don't regret it at all... other then the fact that i got it a little big and it can be hefty to lift and turn. so if you plan on doing freestyle go for a smaller size.
* It turns beautifully
* Rides over bumps like they aren't there
* Floats down the mountain
* Loads of "pop" when you take of a jump
* Has won me a couple of races :)
I plan on keeping this board for another 2 years if they don't improve the model even more.
hey with this board im getting burton...
hey with this board im getting burton escapade bindings but i was wondering what would be the best choice for boots with the board and bindings???
Great All Mountain, Sucks in the Park!
This board is excellent for all mountain riding, however when it comes to riding in the park, it is way too stiff to really grab rails. The directional shape also makes riding switch far more difficult. It's great in powder, though. The board is also pretty difficult to butter because of how stiff it is. If you're a girl that likes to play, I would recommend finding a softer board. =)
need a board and bindings, what bindings...
need a board and bindings, what bindings should i look at for this board??
I would highly suggest the Burton escapade binding to match the Feelgood. It has a medium flex, gel cushioning to soak up chatter and rough landings, and is designed to perform all over the mtn, just like the feelgood!
This is 3D, all bindings are compatible. Re: bindings, you usually get what you pay for. Escapades or Lexas are pretty popular choices. Ride Sigma would also be a good choice.
Also, I wear size 10 Burton Sapphires with...
Also, I wear size 10 Burton Sapphires with Large Burton Stiletto bindings. Anybody have issues with toe drag on this board?
You shouldn't have a problem with drag on this board. It doesn't have a necessarily large sidecut, so it won't be too slim where your bindings go.
I'm 5'4, 130lbs, my current board is a 145...
I'm 5'4, 130lbs, my current board is a 145 salomon which I've definitely outgrown. It feels super slow. Anyway, I'm debating between getting a 149 or 152. I'm on my way from intermediate to advanced & mostly ride groomers but also like powder & trees. Not interested in park at all. I'm leaning towards 152 because 145 to 149 is not a huge difference. Need suggestions & the consequences of getting something too long.
145 to 152 is a HUGE difference and will totally change your riding experience for the worse...you will have to throw your whole body into carves and although you will be very very fast, you will have little control and not much response and you will tire out super easy. the 149 is just about pefect for you
I ended up buying the feelgood ES 150 with the lexa est binding in large. See my review under that product.
This is an amazing board, I love it. It handles great in all conditions; fresh powder, chewed up ice, and heavy spring conditions. It takes little effort to control it. I've been riding it with Burton Lexa bindings, they make a great pair. This has been my first year on a snowboard and I've been able to progress a lot on this board. I would recommend it to riders of all levels.
Excellent all-around board
For years I've never gotten past intermediate with my nine-year-old Feelgood. Just bought this one and it is amazing. Advanced technology does make a difference. So much easier to carve. Very responsive. I should have done this years ago... I've improved in two weeks more than I have in 8 years.
so far Excellent!
This board is an upgrade from a 1997 147 cm Fosser...I went longer (Im 5'5 riding the 154) and thus far, in spring slush and ice, and even though the length is longer, she is performing better than any board I have ever ridden. My turns around moguls are better than ever, and it grabs ice really well too! Other bonuses: nice takeoff over bumps. I am so stoked for next season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a great all around snowboard. It really grips on the steep slopes. It carves nicely on the morning groomers. And it's quick and responsive on the bumps and in the trees. I was riding a five year old feelgood before purchasing the new feel good. This board seems a little stiffer that what I was used to but I had no problem with the changeover.
I'm 5'3 and weigh 126pounds, intermediate...
I'm 5'3 and weigh 126pounds, intermediate level looking to progress, all mountain, plus powder. What board and what size would you recommend?
this board is great for you...and just go with a 149, that will be very balanced and not too hard to get you to the advanced level
Awesome out west
So i have been riding a burton feather for the past four years and totally outgrew the board. It was great for learning, but i needed something a bit more at my level. I got this board and brought it out west with me for some spring riding, and let me tell you... AWESOME board. It handles well and did not take too long to get used to. my bindings were the biggest issue. honestly, sick board, a lot heavier than the feather (go figure... feathers should be light right!?) but for sure a sick ride. highly recommended for intermediate to advanced riders. PS. shipping with backcountry is fabulous. great service always
This is how I roll!
I had the first day on my Feelgood yesterday. This is an awesome board that will definitely take your boarding to another level. After one day up the hill on the Feelgood I was already mastering tricks that I couldn't achieve on my previous board. I am 5'7" and around 140 and I demo-ed three sizes and settled on going for the shorter 149 cm. This little pocket rocket carves faster than a chef in a roast turkey competition and it grips even in the iciest conditions. It's nice and flexi to let you try some fun freestyle tricks. I would recommend to any one that is past the real beginner stage. Love it!!
what is the difference between the burton...
what is the difference between the burton feelgood ics and just the burton feelgood?
the ics (Infinite Channel System) an alternative mounting system that is supposed to be far superior to standard 4 hole and 3 hole mounting systems...heres the catch, you can only use burton bindings with ICS boards, and preferably burton EST bindings
I'm 5'0" tall and weigh 100lbs. I've been...
I'm 5'0" tall and weigh 100lbs. I've been riding a Burton Feather 139 for years and feel I'm ready to progress to the next level of board. It seems the smallest size the Feelgood comes in is a 144. Is that too big for someone my size/weight?Ah - thanks for the reply. I will mostly be using it for freeriding & powder, so your answer helps loads
Depends on what you are going to be using it for. If it is going to be for freeride/pow riding then it will be awesome. If you are going to be using it for more freestyle/park riding, then the extra length may hinder you.
best board ever
i totally love this board, I rode it for the first time the other day and it was awesome. it was super stable and had tons of speed. it grips the hill really well in less then prefect conditions and does great in powdery glades. it's also really light and easy to maneuver, plus it's so pretty :) it feels great and i feel really confident on this board.
Excellent Board! Worth the investment!
Someone told me the Feelgood is not good for beginners b/c it's hard to control. I'd only been boarding 5 or 6 times when I bought the board, and I think it handles amazingly well.
It turns really easily, and just flies down the mountain - now I can keep up with my "pro" friends. My skill level and confidence has exploded with this board.
The Feelgood would be too fast for someone who is just starting out, but if you already know your turns, this is the board for you.
(I'm 5'4", 139lbs and have a 155- I wouldn't go any shorter - it's just right for me)
why aren't you guaranteed to get the color...
why aren't you guaranteed to get the color that is shown?? i want the 154 in the color that is shown, not in one of the other colors...is there any way to be sure i will get the one i want?
The color design of the board is specific to the size. The 152 comes in the red (which is what I have), and for you a 154 would be the blue. So you can choose to downsize to the 152 for the color you want, or ride your 154 and let the blue grow on you. Either one is a nice looking board.
If anybody out there is wishing they had a 154 and has a 152 I'll switch you. Barely ridden ICS.
this board rides so well. it is responsive without being touchy, and i have seen drastic improvement in my ability to both ride all-mountain with increased speed and manuverability as well as stick jumps and try new tricks in the terrain park. i love this board. i think you might, too.
I rode a Burton Custom and had a blast...
I rode a Burton Custom and had a blast cruizing and carving all over the mountain. When I bought my feelgood and took it out the first time, I was catching edge and having trouble turning - all things I never had a problem with before. What am I doing wrong?
The problems you are having are probably arising from the fact that this board is a woman's boards and more flexible than the custom. Try using more finesse and less power.
You also might need to detune your nose and tail! The biggest issue I had with my feelgood sounds very similar to what you have described. Detuning the nose and tail can be done at most shops or if you have a heavy metal file you can do it yourself but pushing the file straight down over the nose and tail portions of the board to where the effective edge begins. This should help :) Since you don't know what you're doing, try youtubing it to see if there is a video that explains this, or I am sure you can find something on google. Little known fact is that when the factory edges your board, it is extremely sharp and thus very easy to catch edges until they naturally detune over time :)
