damn your right bcrider, that was 6 cents!

in my opinion, this board is strait tranny-finder.

its not made for big freeride lines. cheers to you if you ride it down a big mountain, and good luck!

me, im going for longer sidecut and the 165ish range. 148 sounds like a thigh punishing goggle fogging hell.

I could see use of "raduction" as a way to help beginers on the skin track, my first season I had some trouble geting my kick turns down, But after that I was all about A longer board, but not to much, just 3-6cm longer and no wider...

shorter sidecut is going to very detrimental for traversing skinning situations.

this raduction is gonna suck for the up on all but the most maincured skin tracks.

Thanks for that observation christoph. My furberg loves sidehill skinning, despite all the rocker... so easy to keep the edge underfoot weighted...

I love short boards, first time i got chest down toe side craves on Minnesota ice was on a 95 143 Morrow Lunchtray, i've taken my 125 mini down the most technical faces at Moonlight basin, i am stoked to get some Edisons on a Spliff

I was super skeptical of the nug when I first saw it, then our B rep brought a demo up to our hill... Rode it in 4-6 inches of fresh... Got off the lift and immediately bailed into the trees..tentatively at first bc I was expecting to cartwheel instantly but after a few turns I was charging as hard as I could. 6 ft and 220 lbs on a 150 was mind-bottling to me. The thing was ridiculously nimble, tree riding was insanely fun. Ran it through the all terrain types(groomer/trees/bowl) and not having the extra 10 cm of board tripped me out at first but as long as I didn't look down I could barely notice. Handled nuking groomers just fine. It even made the lovely moguls at the end of our bowl outrun not as shitty. That being said, if I came across a used one for a good price I would definitely pick it up to add to the arsenal.

edit: whats up natas? 406 represent!

What size feet, and what's your stance? I'm trying to imagine getting my boots not to hang a mile off the edges.
