    Buell… After some meditation, I bought the hype and I bought the board. My Milligram is on order as of yesterday.

    (Why are there no emoticons on this site?? I wish to put up a dancing banana/smoking dope smiley/headbanger/tongue hanging out smiley/dancing banana again)

    I just got stoked on what everyone says is a snappy, superlight all mountain board. I went with the 168. I can wait to have it in my hands. I have been riding an elderly Mojo 166… I am getting 2 extra cm and prolly shaving off 2 lbs compared to the mojo so I feel like this will be a nice step forward. Okay now… let’s have some snow! (Praying hands smiley/thumbs up smiley/can’t get enough of the dancing banana.)

    Hahaha. Sweet!

    Yes, snow please. Let me know if you head over this winter. I will be in Mono City from Mid January to Mid March. And bring JimW.

    That Milligram does look enticing and I would be interested in it as my next deck. Not sure about the shorter sidecut radius and lack of magnetraction. Being a light guy, I would expect the slower speed turns to be a bit easier on the Milligram. Somebody needs to invent White Carbon Fiber tho…Black is far too prone to icing. I’ll be looking forward to reading your review!

    Buell – I hung out with JimW this weekend… we are planning to crash at your place in Mono City for the full three months, so thanks in advance! (Uhm some kinda ironical smiley here.)

    BTW, I checked out Jim’s Rossignol XV split this weekend and now I’m glad I passed on it…. it is so friggin’ stiff. It would be fun to give it a try as some point this season to see how snappy it really is though.

    Oh crap, that’s a long time. ; )

    Even though the board search is settled, I should mention the G3 Blacksheep which is solid all around board and works well across a broad range of conditions. I had a 158 for a year until I hit one too many rocks with it last season. It is stiff board. At times it is surfy and loose due to the rockered ends, and at other times you can really feel the stiffness. It floats well and holds a good edge. It does ride quite a bit bigger than the 158 Solution.

    I’m still waiting for Koenigsegg to get into the splitboard game too

    @buell – I actually did take a look at the Blacksheep as part of my research and prolly should have mentioned it. I didn’t consider it because it has full rocker with no camber anywhere and I thought I would prefer camber underfoot. I didn’t see your review until after I signed up for the Milligram. Which… arrived today! It is very nice in every way, I can’t wait to ride it.

    Has anyone been on the Prowder Carbon series? I found them on Instagram and they are reporting to have the lightest most cost effective board. They said the 158 came in at 2.6kg. I like rocker in the backcountry and their board is a rocker camber combination. Just wondering if anyone had been on the boards last year.

    Here was the link I found online:
