Back to the Prospector. This is a damn good board, probably the best "quiver of one" I have been on for the backcountry. I have now had it in some very steep terrain, and lots of different types of snow, and it has never let me down. Smooth and predictable (critical attributes to me) in all conditions. It has not let me down yet. The 167X is the perfect size for me in an all-rounder, big enough with enough surface area to be great in deep blower, long enough to be stable at speed (and smooth enough to handle well at speed, damp) and maneuverable enough to handle the tightest terrain I ride in CO's front range trees and chutes/drops. Flex seems near perfect as well, not too stiff, but by no means jittery when maching. I am impressed and happy.
