Currently, my split is a 159 Rossi XV and really like its stiffness and performance. But it is time to change, and as I recently switched to hardboots (backlands+Dyno DH) I would like to go for a light split too. I am 176 x 73 kg. The 158 sounds short for what I like in the backcountry, as I really wanted to change my Rossi 159 for a Rossi 163. So I’m thinking about the mg 163 but am not sure. Maybe Buell you can help me, as you tried both sizes. Any other guys with similar height and weight riding a milligram 163? Cheers September 17, 2019 at 11:07 am #840906 buell 534 Posts Sounds like the 163 September 19, 2019 at 8:52 pm #841048 stoudema 550 Posts I have the 163cm and it works great for all conditions. I’m 170lbs and 5’10. Floats nicely in the pow, and still is nimble enough for tight jump turns on steep firm slopes on corn days….. October 24, 2019 at 3:12 am #842564 Marek 1 Posts I am riding carbon solution 168w and karakoram prime sl…temped to switch to miligram a phantom setup …Buell you rode something like this …what was the weight of it?…8923grams for my splitboard / jones skins, karakoram bindings and Deeluxe spark boots seems to me quite heavy for me… October 24, 2019 at 12:43 pm #842579 buell 534 Posts http://splitboard.com/talk/topic/lighten-up-and-down-2/ I posted some weights in the above thread. It might only be of some help though because I ride much smaller gear than you. I am on the 158 Milligram, medium Phantoms and 25 mondo boots. They have also widened the Milligram a bit which, along with a few other minor changes, has added some grams. Still really light though. I would check out Amplid’s website to get a more accurate board weight for the current 168. December 7, 2019 at 4:50 pm #843946 tyrudder 16 Posts Anyone know what the deal is with the traction camber? Photo makes it look regular camber. Has the milligram always had this? Guessing floor isn’t too affected? January 13, 2020 at 9:24 am #845359 Angus 3 Posts @method – Thanks for your review. Do you or anyone else have any reflections on how the 158 rides in deeper snow? I am similar size (5’10 and 70kg) so Amplid’s specs suggest the 158 should be perfect but my inclination has always been to ride a longer board than this but I’m using US8 boot (good match to the 158 waist) and also looking for climbing efficiency. How did you find the 158 in deep Japanese conditions – could you ride it with your centred? January 15, 2020 at 8:37 pm #845486 Method 148 Posts Angus wrote: @method – Thanks for your review.

Sorry I’ve tried to reply to this question about 5 times and for whatever reason my reply keeps getting deleted. I love talking splitboarding and seeing awesome trip reports, getting gear tips etc but the user friendliness of this form is, well… I’m not going to mince my words here. Fucking terrible. Absolute tripe. Shit. No other way to describe it. No wonder no – one posts any trip reports any more. To answer you questions, I actually have the 163 I’ve discovered (d’oh), not the 158. Rides POW great, trail breaking easier due to less weight. I’d go with the 158 if I were you. I’m your height but 10kg heavier (bit more puppy fat clearly!) I ride in all conditions (japow, shitty aussie hardpack) them just aft of centre, but I like the ability to go switch and still have some board volume in front of me, I guess that comes down to personal preference. January 17, 2020 at 12:55 am #845548 Angus 3 Posts @method – Thanks for the reply, much appreciated. I also had problems posting. My preference would be a longer and narrower board but that doesn’t seem to be the way Amplid have approached the design, it looks like they have made the boards slightly wider in recent years. Am I right in thinking that the geometry of the Milligram (camber profile/nose shape/mid-wide, etc) allows you to take a shorter board and still have good float? Does it ride like a longer board? Separately, has anyone ridden the 158 Milligram and the 157 Millisurf and got any comparison? Re: trip reports, hope to write up a Norway trip which is planned for the spring.
