Hi there,

Thinking of buying my first split setup. Found a good deal on a G3 Black Sheep, w/ Spark Blaze bindings and Voile hardware. It's setup for goofy, with an odd stance angle. Before I buy, wanted to make sure I can easily adjust it to regular, and then switch the stance angles. This is doable with this setup, correct? Also I'm 5'10 145#, and trying to decide between the 158 and 162. Planning to hit mostly pow in Montana, and probably at lower angles to start, so leaning 162. Advice for sizing would be good too. Thanks!

Can't help out on the sizing but you will be able to change up the stance to your liking.

I am your size and ride the 158 G3 from the eastern Sierra to Oregon which generally means heavier, more wind affected powder.

If you are riding lighter powder and lower angle, the 162 will be fine. If I was still spending winters in Utah, I would be on the 162.

Great. Pulled the trigger on the 162. Thanks for the advice.
