bpalladino asked: Do you have to downsize due to Nug Raduction for optimum fit? My normal board size is 157cm, and I prefer the color scheme on the 157 over the 153. Jan 27, 2014

Robert B asked: I'm 5'6" 156 lbs 9 boot size and have been boarding for almost 20 years...love fresh pow and cruising through trees when available but mainly carve it up on the slopes. Is the barracuda a good fit or would a custom, custom x be a better fit? I currently have a 2007 burton air 157. Hoping to get something that will allow me to charge the backcountry and the groomed runs. Will the s rocker allow me to really dig into a turn like a custom without slipping out? I'm assuming a 149 or 153 would be ideal for the barracuda. Jan 12, 2014

Matt GStaff: Hi Robert,

It looks like you fit best within the suggested weight range of the 152cm Burton Barracuda Snowboard (130-180 lbs.) v. the 149cm that has a suggested weight range of 110-160 lbs.

The Burton Barracuda Snowboard is a deck that many say is special, it's designed to be ridden on groomers and in the backcountry, and it does it flawlessly. The setback stance, directional shape & flex (stiffer tail), triax fiberglass, and Frostbite Edges help grip on firm groomers and have quick edge to edge response. Those key features combined with the S-Rocker profile shape make the Barracuda one of the best freeride boards on the market. The camber provides stability at high speeds and the rocker nose floats in pow.

One of the best things about the Burton Barracuda Snowboard for you would be the Nug Raduction tech that allow you to ride a short length, which is ideal for tight turns in the trees.

I give the Barracuda 2 thumbs up, it will treat you right.

Hafeez L: Bought the barracuda on advice like this from both the house and burton. Haven't had a chance to ride in powder yet, where I think the board will be truly at its best, but honestly it doesn't live up to a true camber as far as aggressiveness on hard pack. It DOES slip out from under you (relative to a custom) on hard turns or more aggressive high speed riding. I'm sure I'll get used to it but don't be fooled, its not as aggressive as an aggressive board for hard pack. Probably makes sense to have a separate board for each set of conditions anyway.
