i am 5'11.5" and weigh around 180. i was saving my Dark Series 161 as a powder board. will it work? otherwise, i'm going to sell it and get myself the Mullet from this year. infinitely more sweet this year with the MTX!

this place is bleak.

the mullet is a pow specific board.

dark is more of a freestyle board. you can definitely ride pow on a 161 dark, but with your specs, you'll be leaning back a lot.

sell it and get a mullet or a larger size dark (does it come in a larger size)... you want a pow specific board (within the normal size run) or a longer freestyle board (think 64+)

you definitely could get away using a 161 in pow. how often are you in pow?
 
the mullet is a pow specific board so it will definitely be better in pow. plus with a setback stance and a tapered shape, it will be an easy ride in the pow. yah i think the 160 would work great for yah. or the 56 if you want it for trees.
 
the dark is sized right for you to use it as a freestyle/freeride machine for hauling arse. but at 180 and that board, i think you will be unhappy if you are in the back bowls of Vail or the hobacks in JH.
 
i'm just sayin....
 
have you considered a fish or malolo? the fish is a pow machine.

not very often so far. that's why it's on reserve. i do ride a fair amount in the trees and there tends to be plenty of powder there (even in the east). i hope to be living near better snow in the next year or so.
i am a Lib guy, so i have not considered the Fish or Malolo. it's funny, i had last year's Mullet in a 160 that i got cheap. i sold it cause i thought it was too short.

is a 160 going to be too long for tree riding do you think?

i would say no. i run a 160 fish when it's deep at stowe or jay.

most my friends run a 156 fish. all depends ya know. most people say a smaller pow board is better for the trees on the east.

i have the 60 since i got an amazing deal on it and i really like it. but it does feel longer than a shorter board would (duh).

I ride a 161 timeless in the tress all the time. Haven't had a problem yet with trees. I do carry a Dakine snowboard shovel with me if i do sink into the powder to deep. If you are a good on the spot planner your tree runs will be a breeze with a 160, but i guess thats just the way i think of it.

i just want to make sure i get a board that can do both. i was a afraid the Dark Series would not be great in the powder, even with a setback stance.

i think the Mullet might be the thing to get. especially if i can ride a 160 and still float.

there's a Blue Girl on ebay right now that i would kill for, but the next question would be, what size? and if i can ride that, why not the Dark Series?

yeah, if i didn't already own the Dark Series... granted i had the Ship last Spring for about a month and sold it before i rode it.

i think the Mullet will be the perfect addition to my quiver. i have boards that do everything else. i doubt i can make my money back on the Dark Series anyway, ebay has been flooded with those for months. maybe i'll ride it and see.
