So this was my first BTX board, and I don't think I'm ever leaving it. I am 5'8 and got the 156 because I like to go steep and deep, as well as ride fast and hard down groomers. This board did not disappoint. First day out this board had every condition thrown at it, and it really preformed in it all. It had unreal float in the powder, great edge control and stability at high speeds (no chattering. I was worried about this), and sliced through ice like it was its job. The flex was perfect for me, not too soft, but definitely flexible enough to respond quickly. On jumps, the pop was surprisingly good, and even when I landed had on my tail, it snapped me flat base again. I haven't had any issues with the durability with the board yet. Would recommend this board to intermediate to advanced riders who wanna turn the whole mountain into their park.

Im thinking about getting this board, but wanna know if its too soft to really push it through steep and gnarly terrain.
If its not too soft, what bindings would anyone recommend for the best response for pulling off tight controlled turns? I was looking at Bent Metal Missionaries.
Thanks a ton.

This boot is got pretty good flex. Not too stiff, not too soft. My last pair of vans were a size 10, and this one was a little more snug than my last size ten, but its packing out. Boa system is pretty good, but I would recommend the boa focus system since you cannot tighten the two different zones separately with the single boa like you can with the focus system. This means that it might get tighter around the foot and not as tight up top around the ankle, but that was the only downside of this boot. Great boot for the price though.
