hi im 5'10 boot size 10 and i weigh 130 lbs looking for a fun buttery park board mostly for jibbing and playing around on some rails and boxes but also for jumps a little bit of runs and lots of pow would you recommend the fix 149 with some burton exile est medium bindings or should i go with the hero 152?

The Hero is going to be a softer board. After you break it in, it is really soft and playful. The 149 is going to be too small. Go with the 152.

Hero. It does better in the powder because it has more rocker. If youre going to be going fast though, get the fix. The Hero is real squirrely at high speed I've heard.

I have a burton custom from last year im still riding, im 5 10' and its a 166. i find it very hard to do tricks. if i buy this will it enable me to do my 360s again, and start to do 270 board slides, nosse presses, and some cooler jibs.

K so im 5,9 and 135 lbs. I'm thinking about getting a fix (maybe wide) or a Hero LTD (maybe wide). I love to jib and butter, but I also love to hit 40+ footers. I really dont care about the price difference between these two boards but I just want to know which one is the better board. I need it to be buttery but good for jumps and flexy but still firm when it needs to be. Anyone?

Best Answer

I've never ridden a fix, but I do have a hero wide. It is very good on jibs and in pow. It holds up well on kickers, but I don't hit anything over 25 ft, so I don't know how it will perform past there. My guess is that due to pressure distribution edges the hero will be a little more comfortable at speed than a fix which could help too. Just my experience w/ the hero wide.

The Hero sounds like the right choice. All guys I know that ride the Hero love it and are into the same style of riding as you are.

thinking about the fix, dominate or hero....

thinking about the fix, dominate or hero. need a board that will help me progress . Doing butters, rails and small to medium kickers- any suggestions?

the fix or the hero are going to be the ones to look at, i prefer the hero overall because its soft and gives you the pop you want

pass on Burton and buy Never Summer. for what you are describing go for the Never Summer Evo-R. Gives you the flex you want for rails and butters, but also allows you to hit some kickers as well. And the R.C. tech allows you to float the deepest goods with ease!

I agree, the Hero is the way to go. The Burton Fix and Dominant have what's called a P-Rocker, whereas the Hero has what's called a V-Rocker. Although they both have their perks, the V-Rocker has 3 different rocker points (between your feet, and one outside each of your feet) as opposed to the P-Rocker's 2 (Outside each of your feet). This basically means that your gonna be able to feel more, and control yourself easier. If you've never ridden on a rocker board before, the Hero is gonna make you never want to go back, get ready to own those rails and boxes.

I'm looking for a good park/jib board but I'm 6'3 wear a size 13 boot and 220lbs. Any suggestions? My current board is a Capita black death speed tribe 162.5 wide.

This board is a mid wide... but isn't soft. Its a good jump board!!!!

Do you want something super soft?

If so, check out the HERO WIDE: (its a super jibby stick with an amazingly soft flex)

A lil more of a medium flex? The Flying V or Joystick will knock your socks off (both are mid-wides! (you will be okay with a 13 if you have boots with some shrinkage tech)

Size down a few CM as they are rockers... get ready to live.

For real, if you have more questions, ask me... I did a write up on the joystick. check it!

Hey im interested in getting the fix but...

Hey im interested in getting the fix but dont know if it will fit, im 6'3'' 185-190 lbs and have a size 13 boot

What size were you planning on getting? If you go up to a 162 your waist width is about a 25.6... (25.4 on the 158)

ideal you should be riding about a 25.8+ in waist width but unless your a Euro carver your probably not goignt o notice any heel or toe drag. Do you have a slimmed down boot that rocks like a size-smaller verion? If so, you'll be money!

plus, you'll have a machete on your board to kick anyone's ass who tells you differently.

well i wanted to get a 158 or 159, i was riding a 162 ride dose and it felt a little too big(and heavy).

sweet thanks I was e-mailed burton and they said that they will order me in a retro disc if I dont get the proper bindings for this board. Does the retro disc only work for Forum and Burton bindings? And is there a Burton EST binding thats not to pricey?

Best Answer

yes, the retro disk only works with Burton or Forum binders that accept a center disk... (pretty much everyone of them) -- Also the board comes with the retro disk so you don't need to get it from Burton.

However, your splurging for the board so you might as well as go the whole way and Find a pair of EST bindings optimizing that ride!

Here is the cheapest EST bindings that are new:

There are some older Triad EST but there only seem to be size small left:

Im doin about 20-40ft jumps beginning to learn rails but im not to sure what board to get. Im considering this along with the burton blunt and forum youngblood chillydog. I also go do runs sometimes.

I would probably point you in the direction of the Fix or Youngblood. The blunt is an insane board but it may be a little too soft for what you looking at. The fix is an awesome board that can do anything with a rail/park focus. If it snows you can definitely ride it in POW. Check out "The B" movie for proof on that one. Some sick POW jumps shots being throw down on the fix.

The youngblood is going to have a little more agressive of a rocker so it will feel less 'edgy' on rails but may feel a bit of the same way on jumps.

The fix seems like a solid choice, but I think either that or the Forum would stoke you out!

Any other boards i should look at based...

Any other boards i should look at based on my specs? Preferably burton/rome/forum.

I think your probably on point with the Fix, but you could check one of the chillydog (manual or destroyer) Forum boards... or a hero from Burton. Hero won a good wood award, but this FIX graphic is doper!!!

You like the Fix!

I weigh about 120, 5'7 and growing, and want this board to last me at least another season would the 158 be for all that?

I would definitely not go larger than the 155... the 152 is ideal and will still last a few seasons.

Here is a perspective for ya... I am 6', 195lbs... I ride a 157 for a park/pipe/jump board and a 159 for powder.

if i am 100 pounds and 5"2 would you...

if i am 100 pounds and 5"2 would you recremend this 149cm board over the 151cm x8 board

To tell you the truth man you might want too look at a shorter board, getting a park board that big just isn't realistic for your size. If you were ot buy the board at that length it would make it much stiffer, much faster, way less spin control, and less mobility. I would strongly suggest going shorter, any ways man enjoy!

Yeah I would go with a 139-144cm board for your height and weight.


Burton fix 152 2008

    Rode the board for a few days over the summer up at Hood, responsive and soft. Pretty much what I would look for in a park board other than the pricetag.
