I ride a '07 166cm and love it. The board is super stiff and has a great shape for ripping deep powder or flying down groomers. I haven't had any of the lamination problems I read about on other sites. I'm 6'2'', 230lbs and the 166 has been great. Make sure you don't buy too long because the long nose on this will really toss you around on any bumps if your board is too long. I discovered that when I set my bindings too far back. The base is really fast, and paired with the stiffness and shape your can carve down groomers as fast as you're willing. I wouldn't buy this board unless I already had another board to butter and jump with, because the short tail and stiffness doesn't allow for much. Bottom line: add a killer powder board to your bag and get a great board for the groomers to boot!
