Jedi business🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️  Hope to be back by then but won’t be 💯 till next season. Takes 12 weeks to fully heal. Tahoe goals in March. Flutie is a tough sell these days?Workin on him for a Spring Stowe appearance. Fingers crossed the season goes deeeeep

rode the 155 branch manager in fucking awful conditions today (man made crunchy ice) and it was pretty cool, I was surprised how stiff it was.  stiff, bro.  will be keeping it but definitely suited for deep days.

How much do you weight?

I tried a 159 and yeah it felt as stiff as the Landlord; which is a stiff board.

165lbs, I wasn’t expecting it to be that stiff at all.  Was thinking it’d be similar to the Con Artist or something 🤷🏽‍♂️.

I am 165 also and owned the 59 Branch Manager for a little while.  I thought it was super stiff but also thought it was a really fun do-it-all board.  Like a stiff cambered Fish with a full tail.  Just had too much overlap in my quiver, but I still recommend it

Yeah exactly. I really liked it; the only reason I didn't get one is because I have a Fish and a Landlord so this fell somewhere inbetween and made no sense for me to buy at the time...

That just sounds so anti EL.

There's a hole, you fill it!

I kind of regret not getting the 158 Dump Truck earlier on.

Got a 155 Stun Gun instead, which fits much better with my other boards; but man, that Dump Truck is a straight out ripper...

Do it, won't regret it esp if you're looking for a fun, lightweight charger. My brother now owns the one I had, and he loves it too. If they ever re-release or make a board just like it, def grabbing again. Like I've mentioned before, fave B deck I've been on to date, personally. Charges awesome, but also fun everywhere I took it ie. Park Laps, sidehits etc. Though the 63 might feel a little more comfortable for your specs?

Burton Outlet in Wrentham MA has a few discounted Dump Trucks on the racks if you guys are feeling frisky.

You mean tha real “DT”??? I run the 5-4 at 160lbs wit no complaints. I can push her through turns and she grips but still play around on the nose a bit at that length. Pretty much rendered my  56 FA obsolete. 

I’m no bodybuilder like you BF so don’t hold it against me if you “overpower” the 58.
