Better late then never but I ended up going with the 162 AMF and used it most of last season and I couldn’t be happier took it all over UTAH, Montana and Wyoming and it took everything i throw at it. I also ended up going with Sparks bindings instead of Karakoram don’t want to get banned for saying it but I was not a fan of Karakoram bought em and returned them. Got the canted pucks for the Sparks and loved it transition couldn’t be easier and they are so light. Got the new model so no pin. With the canted pucks I can rock it with a wide stance no problem.
As for the all around feel the board is super playful hold a edge well and it charges surprisingly. Float was more then I needed effortless in my opinion. Went through some really iffy terrain and the board performed flawlessly will be taking it to Washington this year hopefully and depending on considions maybe be Tahoe.
