Couldn't be happier with this board...

Current set-up:

GNU Wide Rider's Choice Board,
-158cm
Ride MTX Bindings
Thirty-Two Boots

My Stats:

6'1''
190 lbs
11 Men's Shoe size
I have been riding since I was 6 years old, mainly in Colorado at Vail and other places around there...

First of all, I am a little bigger than the average rider, and am still rocking the 158cm board. It feels small, but responds exactly how I want it to. It is much better than any previous board I have ever ridden. My toes and heels do not hang over the edge (obvious, but w/e). The serrated edges in the middle of the board have a weird feeling I have never encountered, it really responds on ice and really allows the rider to have total control in all conditions on the mountain. The board has a mid to high-flex (it is no super-banana board tho). Basically, this board has everything you could every want in an "all-mountain" snowboard. I would highly suggest this to anyone with the cash to spare...

I'm currently riding 162w and, I must say, I really like this board. I'm a big guy at 6'5" 230 with a monster size 13 boot. No drag at all! The banana traction is a little interesting feeling to me because I've only ever ridden cambered boards before this one. I feel that it's maybe slightly soft but, it doesn't sacrifice on performance at all. No sloppiness in the edges even at high speeds with 12in of fresh! I haven't had the chance to get it in the park yet so no reports on hardpack landings or presses just yet. Overall though, once I got used to the little extra flex from the banana, butters and presses down the hill were easy and much less demanding than riding a cambered board. So far, I'm very happy!
