This is quite the demanding crowd. Well, your remarks prompted me to do some more digging beyond my first(read half-assed) attempt and I believe these number are more accurate and will be more to your liking. Cheers!!!

The board is a year 2000 model.

I have/had 2 of these board:

A 163 that I used couple years ago and sold it last year.

A 155 that I used last year as a PSL board, I damaged one edge last spring and I won't be able to race with it again. I fixed it and I will keep it for spring snow.

Those board had a progressive radius, according to your weight distribution ( forward or not ) you could acheive different radius. Very lively board indeed, Cap construction. Mine was pearl white, go figure what year it was.

From what I heard, Elan is building the Sigi Alpine snowboard.
