I love this board. Im 6'4, 220lbs - went for the 172. So sick in powder and tears it up carving on groomers. Super stable at lightspeeds on groomers, too. Tail is poppy, feels good. A bit weird riding switch, of course (tail is over an inch narrower than the nose). The narrow tail makes it pretty easy to whip around, good for tight trees and whatnot. I absolutely love this board. Was my first btx/magne board. I dont think i'll ever ride anything without rocker again. hard to notice the magnetraction but i guess it works. Took about 3 runs to get used to the btx and after that its gravy. I bought a rider's choice 166wide to go with it, perfect 2 board quivver, wont need anything else.
