Dean-
Thanks for the insight! Your take is the same as one of the people I chatted with on the Backcountry site and your advice is top shelf dude(if anyone wonders if the chat feature is worth bothering with....IT IS!) I chatted with a guy named Vinny and he gave some solid advice and took the time to check on things for me....I ended up going with the 159. Long enough to hold the edge, but short enough to swing around easily. Now we will see how it rides....if it ever snows in Vermont....still waiting. Ha

Hey guys,

I am looking at buying this board and I would appreciate some quality insight. I am 5'11" tall, wear a size 11 boot, I weigh 215lbs. I wanted to get the 163mw board, but a couple rider friends of mine said the 159 regular width would be fine and would be more maneuverable. I am not going to see much deep powder (live in Vermont) so what do you think?

Hey guys, I could use your help. I am looking for a real supportive boot because I have terrible ankles and a totally flat foot. I am looking at buying the Jeremy Jones twin board or the Flagship this year and matching them with a pair of Imperials. I haven't decided on the binding yet. Are the Imperials good? I don't ride park.

My stats: 215lbs, 5'11, size 11-11.5 boot (burton hail size 11), all mountain rider, not into park (but not against it). I have ridden for about 3 years, this year the hardest and the most. I have been riding a Nitro Magnum Gunslinger 159W because it was free and I wanted to try the wide feel. I think the board is bottom line. Now I am looking to buy. My current options are:
Burton Custom X, Burton Custom V-rocker, Burton Joystick, and GNU Rider's Choice.
I could use the advice of the guys that are in the know!! Help a brother out!!
