I am 5'10", 130 Lbs. There are two boards available for me to buy from my friend: a 2001 160 Factory prime, or a 167 FP. I am 16 and want some room to grow. I would like to know by tonight. Thanks.

Thrillkil,are you looking to freecarve or race,or both? The 160 is a Slalom board,it'll turn quicker,ride better at up to Mach 1,and be at disadvantage doing long,drawn-out arcs,but it's likely better suited to your weight. The 167 will be more versatile in terms of speed,but will not want to nimbly manuver through a slalom course.The 167cm will do well as a biggish freecarver,and would be o.k. as a weekend-warrior G.S. racer. The big issue is have you put your paws on either of these boards,and have you then flexed them? At your weight,that's a something to consider...
