    Posted: Aug/04/2006 at 3:18pm

Mike Says: One of the worst problems beginner snowboarders encounter is not knowing how to correctly select their gear. For example, when you have a big foot (sizes 11-15), you need to ride a wide-waist board or else your toes overhang too much. If your toes overhang the edge of the board, then it will be hard to make correct toe and heel side turns without falling. The Burton Bullet is a great option for new snowboarders because its construction is designed to provide a soft and forgiving flex, which helps beginners gain confidence in their turns.


Donald Says: You know what they say about snowboarders with big feet? That's right, they ride wide boards, and the Burton Bullet is just that. The Bullet is an awesome board for the beginner to intermediate riders with a bigger foot size.

This is the “entry level” board for big footed riders. This board features many technological advancements while still allowing room for learning. This is an ideal board for anyone just starting out snowboarding or even for someone just wanting to take it to the next level.



Features
Lightspeed Vision Base : easy, low maintenance base that also allows for superior images.
Biax React Fiberglass : a relaxed fiberglass that will allow you to try bigger jumps and stomp those new tricks
Sidewall Construction :
Negative Core Profile : thinner core in the middle and outside of the board which results in more flex making it a great park/freestyle board.
Fly Core : This is what sets apart Burton beginner boards from other companies. They still use their classic wood core, but it gets the job done. It improves board feel, flex and durability.
Dualzone EGD™ :
Slightly Tapered Shape:

Tech Specs        154           159           164
Effective Edge      1207.5 mm      1260 mm           1300 mm
Waist Width      256 mm           260 mm           262 mm
Nose Width      303.1 mm      309.1 mm           312.5 mm
Tail Width           298.1 mm           304.1 mm           306.5 mm
Sidecut Depth      22.3 mm           23.3 mm           23.75 mm

Review from fellow rider #1: 4 of 5 stars
I have a 2003 Burton Bullet 167. I got it this last Christmas from my Mom. Sadly, the season has been pretty crappy here in the NW. It's the third driest winter on record! But my roommate and I made it up to the mountain (Mt. Hood Meadows) like 4 or 5 times. I went once with my girlfriend too.

I was very excited to try my board out. I've been very pleased with my Burton Bullet. I've been on ice, packed snow, and powder with it. It's performed great in all conditions. I haven't grinded anything with it yet though. But I have done 180s & 360s with it. There's enough flex to do tricks but enough stiffness to bomb down the mountain. The Bullet is an all-mountain board which means it was designed to handle anything you can throw at it.

My only complaint about the board is that it's a little on the heavy side. But for less than $300, I can't complain!

The reason I chose the Bullet is because it's made for those of us with big feet (10.5+). I wear a size 12 boot and with a normal board my toes would hang over the edge of the board which really decreases performance. I haven't had any problem with toe drag with my Bullet.

The tapered (curved) shape of the board increases it's stability while cornering and improves response when you're switching edges. The flex of the board is acceptable but could be improved. I'd like a little more fl

For the money, i would pony up alittle more to get something alittle more intermediate like. Even if you are a beginner, you will quickly progress out of this board and probably end up buying a new board the season after.

Its a great board, I'm keeping my 10' for the next couple of years. I've heard a lot of people say the same thing about getting a reversed cambered board as well. It just depends on the person, and what you want to do.

But if you're planning on doing a lot of tricks then going with another board is a smart choice as it can be a little stiff for some of that.

Apparently you also love drudging up old threads.  1 year, 2 months and 15 days between your post and the last post.

Normally I don't get past what shows up on the community homepage.  I will check geartalk and the funny pictures thread but thats about it.  Other than that, it gets kinda rediculous looking for these really old threads.  I just find it astonishing that people have the time to do this.

I can get pretty far into Classifieds, because I'm on the lookout for new bindings.  If I happen to see something within the first 5-8 pages, maybe I'll PM them... who knows, maybe something good just got overlooked? 

But the others, 1-2 only.

Its gotta be a property of the shtooked up search functionality.  The guy probably searched for "Burton Bullet" and this is the first thread that came up.  If only there was some sort of ordering to the search results based upon timeliness, or relevance, or, well anything.

I find it really hard to believe anyone reads through that many pages of forum titles to dig up an old thread.  I personally never make it past page one for boardroom/geartalk.
