Hey scotthaggarty - Just noticed your post. Not sure if you ended up getting the AMF yet, but I can offer my two cents.

The carbon will most definitely affect the feel of this board. I realize the first thing people think of with carbon, is the increased weight savings, which makes sense for those long days. But I would warn people to consider the conditions they typically ride in before deciding if carbon is right for them.

Prior has worked on their carbon weave over and over again, and note that their carbon weave is quite damp compared to other carbon weaves. It does stiffen up the board quite a bit, so you will feel a little bit of that added "pop" on turns, and more chatter on the hard packed conditions.

Since this board is meant to be playful fun and flexy, carbon will counteract that flexy feel. So it depends what you're really looking to gain out of this board.. flexy? or weight savings?

I posted a review of this board on my personal site http://powdergangster.ca/reviews/prior-amf-splitboard/. But I mostly just summed it up right here anyway... regardless of carbon or not, I don't think you can go wrong with picking this board. Cheers!

Would a AMF 158 be to big for me ?
around 5'5" and 170 lbs maybe, included backpack.

I ride preaty aggressive, like those steep hill sides, but still wanna cruise the good pow when we have it.

Thanks!
