Burton FP 7.8 on ebay


Recommended Posts

It's a good board for someone heavier tan me (I'm only 146 lbs). I have my FP157 and it's kicking my arse ;o). I'd recommend this board to someone heavier than me and who likes a STIFF ride (get your mind out of the gutter NOW - FP's were made with B.O.B.S.I. of 15 (on a 1 to 10 scale . . .)

You are comparing a G.S. specific board with a Slalom specific board. I'd make a bet that if you could get your fp 157 through a slalom course you could ride the 178 fine, it really isn't all that stiff. (I don't weigh that much more than you and I find that the stock 178's are too turny for most G.S. courses. It's not about weight, it's about technique.)
