Can I ask what the Chronick Booster metal plate is? Seems interesting!

Fantastic deal IMHO. 

I would totally buy it if I didn't already have one 😄

 

I am constantly finding out how much fun and capable it is.

The Chronick Booster is a nickel/chrome smelted alloy material.  3 times more pop than ordinary metals.  This is exclusive to Alloy Snowboards.  I just added a photo of the D.O. with a clear top sheet so you can see the two metal strips.

Ah ok. I prefer predictability over pop. I guess I'm out. Thanks for your response, think, it sounds interesting and looks cool.

I’d say it’s a predictable pop.  Hit me up at reppiiinsnowllc@gmail.com.  I’ll get a demo out to you when the season comes. Unless you live near a mountain that’s still open.  I can also send you a video review done by Martin Drayton.

I’d definitely call it predictable @daveo, rather than poppy...

Hmm. These reports seem conflicting, then.

Either way, I'd like to try one 🙂

I have the 165 D.O. and consider it in the same company as my Kessler “ Rides” and BX. Still weighing it against a new Custom Donek Saber that is a beast!

So, while all the Pricess Tinyfeets are gathered around gushing and giggling, the clodhoppers among us are scuffing their heels and grousing about feeling left out, as usual...Big Feets Matter!

That guy doesn’t need a snowboard. His regular shoes are classified as pow boards by themselves. 

But I digress. Even I with my measly 27mp foot have plenty of overhang. A 27cm wide version would be very interesting indeed!

Wow what a review. I have to extend my appreciation to you, that's really amazing. By far the best snowboard reviewer.

Daveo - I had a 161 Demo I got from Don and I can say it's a Turny Predictable Little Bandit!!       AND I'd say  if I could find an unmolested carbon 2017-2018 (the shiny topsheet model)  D O 161  I'd by it in a heartbeat!

You seriously gotta try this board!  Trust me, you won't be disappointed!!

I'm curious... Not having ridden the 2018-2019 model, I thought they were pretty much the same. Am I wrong? Did I get the better one?

 It's purely a visual thing - no difference in performance - just don't like the latter model flat black top sheet 

I thought the shiny top sheet model was the Bomb!, and  yes it made it Super Slippery without a Big Stomp Pad!

I rode both. Size 9 boot. No riser/no boot out. The 161 favors a lighter rider and the 165 favors someone heavier. My 165 is all I rode from the day I got it in late December. A day here or there. The closest board I rode this season to my DO Was a 2004 lib Grocer... very similar dimensions aside from the large flipped tip and tail
