    Hello. I am 6’1” 175-180 lbs depending on the day and I’ve been riding on a 162 burton custom. I don’t hit the park at all but will hit a jump here and there. I find my board a little tougher maneuver when going through trees and in general it’s a lot to whip around when carving. I’ve been looking at getting a 158 wide burton custom because i think it’ll be easier to maneuver. Is that a good choice?

      For your weight/height, the 162 is definitely a bigger board, so it makes sense that it is more work getting it through the trees. A 158 will be a lot more manoeuvrable, though if you don’t absolutely need a wide board, I would get a regular width if possible. It all depends on your boots though, what size do you wear?

    Hi Lachlan, Thanks for your reviews.

    I’m a 5’6″ 70kg high intermediate rider from Australia looking to buy a new board.

    I primarily ride groomers/tree runs but am also looking to work on my freestyle riding a bit (flatground tricks, jumps off sidehits but no plans for rails). I also want the board to be great for carving and have decent edge hold for the icy conditions we tend to get in Australia. At this stage I’m tossing up between the Capita Mercury (153cm) and the Capita Asymulator (152cm).

    I demo’d the Never Summer Prototype 2 last season and really enjoyed the asymetric side cut hence why I’m considering the Asymulator but am a hesistant because I hear it’s not that stable at speed. However I also read that the Mercury can be quite aggressive so can be a bit more work than the asymulator when you want to ride slow and take it easy.

    Do you have any thoughts and recommendations about my choice of boards? Or is there another board you’d recommend altogether?

    Thanks!

      Thanks! Both the Capita Asymulator and Mercury are going to be good choices, but I would choose the Asymulator for the type of riding you are looking to do. The Mercury is a decent notch stiffer, and it takes much more effort to butter, though it does feel more stable.

      I wouldn’t worry about the Asymulator not being stable at speed, I found it to be quite good even though I was riding it shorter than normal – the regular camber keeps everything stable and still gives it decent pop. Another option that is almost the same (except not asym) is the DOA/Defenders of awesome, which is a great option, that I think it a bit cheaper as well.

        Sweet, thanks for the advice Lachlan. Going to lock in the pre-order for the Asymulator with my local snowboard shop now!
