If you're looking for the best all mountain board, look no further. I picked up the 168, and a Pair of C02 Est's. I've never felt more comfortable on a mountain. I can't believe how this board reacts to your movement. I rode Mammoth this past weekend, they got 16 inches of fresh pow. This board will kill everything you put it on. I wouldn't hesitate buying this setup again. It is pricey, but honestly worth every cent. FIND A SALE! You wont be sorry.
