Sick board

I rode this board for a test fest in Michigan and fell in looove with it! When it didn't make Transworlds "good wood" list, I was super bummed and considered not getting it... my boardshop reminded me that tws shouldnt guide my opinion on whats a good board or not, especially when I've already rode all the boards that were tested. so I got it and I'm sooo happy with it!
This board is super legit for park and I loved the magna traction...especially having to ride on Michigan's ice most of the time. It has great pop and sick flex for buttering on boxes. I'm 5'9 and I tested the 149 but got the 153...I just wanted a slightly bigger board for cruising powder and for more stability on jumps, but if you never set foot outside the park, 143 is your best bet.

Brilliant board. The magne traction really does actually work, and its amazing how much it does, i was really surprised. i barely noticed it was icy until i rode with my friend who kept slipping out on the ice. You can have edges but still not catch them in the park, i almost (and probably definitely should have) caught a few back edges messing about, but you can get out of all sorts of sticky situations, and it seems really hard to catch an edge.
Really fast on the flats, can go flat base. Soft but still is fine going along at speed. Also in the powder it was fine. I didnt get massive amounts this trip but even though iv gone down from a 144 to a 141 it was still fine in the powder, float along nicely and definitely didnt have to put so much effort leaning my weight backwards aas i used to on my custom.
It is a bit more expensive, but its definitely worth it. Can use it as an all around board, and can go a bit smaller which makes it realy easy to spin arouns on.
100% happy, even though it cost me a bomb to get it sent to the UK!!
