i started out 7 years ago with an old 156 and learned on that. this summer i hit a clearance and saw a black/red 161 and fell in love with it and had to have it. i got it home, had it tuned, hit the mountain with it in december, and it's like a whole new world of boarding. i can skate on flats with it, it carves easier, and the raised lettering also acts like a stomp pad so i can steer off a lift. in short, the best board i've had ever. only reason it's not a 5 is the red wears off, and that was part of the appeal for me. short of that, i've never been on a better board!
SHould i get the 154 or the 151?... i'm 5'9" i way 140lbs and i do park and freeride but i stay in park a little more... it seems like the 151 will be much easier in the park than the 154...?

Def. get the 151 if your going to be in the park more, even at your height you should be riding a 151. I'm 6'1 and 150 lbs, and i ride a 153 for park.

I've got the 07/08 157 Believer. First of, the graphics are really low key but smacks you over the head up close, but this is basically rubbish since I don't know if that applies to the 08/09 as well.
The board is a little to stiff for just jibbing, but it's still smooth enough for butters and presses. The tail and nose are really poppy and the top sheet is rubbery (07/08) and lets you ride one foot with ease.
This boards with its slightly stiff design gives me a little more confidence to go faster and bigger than my previous all park board. It works well in most terrains, and stops at nothing. I've also seen more of them at the mountain this year, so I'm not the only Believer out there.

how's the pop and flex of this board, I mean can I do big ollies and butters with this thing, is it too stiff?

Rode a Believer 154 all season long. It was THE quintessential do-everything board. Good for ripping the all mountain park at Big Bear, and it was good enough for the powder up in Baker. Of course you could get a better rail board (WWW), or you can get a better pow board (Gyrator). But if you can only have one, then look no further.
It has good flex, slightly stiffer than the Darkstar, and good sidecut too. You won't be dissapointed.
Hey so I've been looking to get this board for next season, and I can't decide which size to get. I'm currently riding a K2 Brigade 155, I'm 5'11 and 165lbs. I'm debating between the 154 or 157.
I ride mainly all mountain with some jumps and jibs thrown in when I pass through. When there's fresh pow I don't hesitate to get myself into the deep stuff.
So my question really is, should I size up to improve speed and performance in powder? Or size down to make improve freestyle performance?

the 157cm for sure. You will thank yourself for the extra length on the pow days.

It's VERY difficult to say based on what little you've said. I suggest joining or lurking a snowboard forum's beginner secions. I CAN say you probably want to be in the 164-168ish range for length.

Not a fan of this board. I just used it at HCSC and had heard good things about it. I'm 58 160 and was on the 56 hitting a small jump. I cleared the jump then SNAP. The board folded in half behind my back binding! I know K2 makes all their boards in China but I wasn't expecting this. Looks like I won't be getting this board in the fall.
