Coiler construction education needed


Recommended Posts

I picked up 2 used boards last year (thank you again to 1xsculler) and it has taken until now to ride the second one. I am not sure what happened after last January but all I know is that I am 10 lbs heavier and there are teenagers living at my house.

Help me understand what I bought please.

Board 1, The Firefly

T 164 LVD 020 RH 6.3+9

This one was my favorite board ever until I rode

Board 2, The Snake in my Boot

T 172 AMTC 020 RH 6.4+4

What in the flip do these hieroglyphics mean? I was a little nervous getting the 172 since my previous board for almost 20 years was a 161 Nidecker SL board. But, after 1 run, the size was easy to control and I feel great at speed on toe side, heel side I do what I can to survive. My expectations are low at age 57 with maybe 7 days a year on the snow.

10 lbs will not make a big difference.  

The biggest difference is the LVD = Livvid model is a very energetic lively board and the AMT = All Mountain Titanal is a very friendly easy to ride board.  

Stay on the AMT until you get super comfortable on it.  The Livvid is a very demanding board that will wear you out quickly, and will probably not be much fun after the groomers get cut up.  The AMT will be a great ride all day board.

Dont be intimidated by the length, it actually gives you more stability forward and aft.


You have some great boards!  Have fun with them!

the 6.3 and 6.4 is the flex.

Note that these flex numbers are not comparable across different lengths. They are deflection under weight measurements of the specific build; longer boards can measure higher deflection than shorter even when they are stiffer.
