I/m 6'1", 205 lbs and I ride a Rome Anthem 162 which I love as an all around board, but I feel like I need a pow board. I've been told that with the BTX you can stay at your normal board size and still float nicely but I'm wondering if I should man up to the 172 or just stick with a 165. Or is this even the board I want for pow specific riding?
I am guessing the 165 is going to be the one. I am 6', 175 and I ALMOST got the 165 but went 160 instead. It still floats well and the BTX is absolutely killer. The Mullet is a surprisingly good all-purpose board without too much setback, I have moved my stance all the way back for the powder we just got, it's fantastic.
The Mullet is a great board, you won't be disappointed.
I ride the 165 and absolutely love it! My friend went up to the 172 and loves it. He weighs about the same as you do. Either way you go, you're going to be happy. The 172 obviously floats slightly better and is slightly faster. Really though, I'm happy with the manueverability of my 165. This is the BEST board I've ever ridden, hands down. LOVE IT!!!!
