163 Climax
I just got a 163 Climax (I'm 6'1" 190lbs Size 11 boot), and today I took it for my first day of the season. Coming from a 162W Banana Magic (the last BTX! model), I was a little nervous that I'd find the board too stiff or difficult to turn. I was, however, pleasantly surprised by how similar it was to the Banana Magic with regards to turn initiation and compliance.

Where this board differs is in a few categories. First and foremost, it is extremely light. I didn't think a pound or two would make much difference, but it was instantly noticeable. There is just no weight to move around. Second, it is much faster than the Banana Magic. I never had a problem straight lining the Banana Magic, but this is easier to stay flat and faster when it is flat. It has a lot more pop than the Banana Magic as well. Ollies weren't much different, but popping off any bump or jump felt smoother and more powerful than what I'd experienced with the Banana Magic.

It's very clearly not a park board. Riding switch wasn't hard, but it also wasn't as effortless as a true twin. Though, having rocker in the middle, it is simple enough to do nose and tail presses. Still, I'll keep the Banana Magic for days that are more park heavy.

I didn't get a chance to ride in any deep snow. The Sierras are a little dry right now, but there is a bit of a set back and the tail is notched, so I'm guessing it will do well in the deep stuff.

Overall, it's a great board, and it's definitely not the handful that has been described in other reviews that I've read. It felt good at every point and in every situation on the mountain, and I never found myself wishing I was riding anything else.
