Any light you guys could shed would be appreciated; Gary August 22, 2005 at 8:39 pm #582591 jimw 1421 Posts I split a Fish 156HD last year. I’m about 5’11”, 160 lbs. I think the board is too small for me, but that size might be just right for you. It was quite squirrely on the one real BC trip I took it on. I’m thinking about selling it (interested?). Anyway, I would recommend the HD. You will lose a bit of stiffness when you split the board.

Looks like a ton of steep vert. 😯 August 22, 2005 at 9:24 pm #582593 bcrider 4149 Posts Halls of the Gods…aka Indian Rock chutes August 22, 2005 at 10:00 pm #582594 jimw 1421 Posts TR here: http://www.splitboard.net/talk/viewtopic.php?t=565 August 22, 2005 at 10:07 pm #582595 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Sweeet!!

I’d take you up on the offer to sell JimW, but the customs fas****s always nail me for ridiculous import duties ( don’t we have a “Free Trade Agreement”?). So, unless you make it to Canada…or i come to the next split fest, i’ll have to take a pass. I don’t think i would have the squirrely issues that come with that kind o’ terrain…my wife won’t let me ride that stuff 😉 Gary Viewing 8 posts - 1 through 8 (of 8 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
