    I’ve been thinking about splitting a Fish, but as i investigate the Fish i’ve encountered a bit of dilemma:
    Fish comes in two degrees of stiffnes: “HD” and “MD”, cut-off between them is 150…IE weight range of MD is 100 to 150#s and the HD is 150 to 200#s…as i weigh in at 145 without my backcountry gear…which one do i go with?

    Any light you guys could shed would be appreciated;

    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.

    Sorry for the off topic post. Geez, what a beautiful pict. What chute/mtn. is that? Looks like a ton of steep vert. 😯

    Either get a 156 hd or go for the 160.

    Thanks for the advice! The HD it is.
    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 😉
