Another 40+ rider here (42) on a HTH.  Man that board loves to change direction

and do quick turns.   As some mentioned the edge hold is excellent. 

I've been pleasantly surprised after riding magnetraction for the past almost 10 seasons.

Got on my HTH160 for the first time yesterday and didn’t fall in love with it right away like most others have. I’ve gotten used to wider, stiffer, directional chargers that aren’t soft in the middle, so I may need a couple more days on it in better snow. 

If it doesn’t grow on me, I’ll just unload it and put the cash towards the Japan fund.

Also hopped on the HTH 156 with malavitas for the first time out in the midwest. Seemed just a tad too big for me for the first run and didn't love it right away, but I'm gonna try and give it a little bit more of a chance for a couple more days on the hill. Otherwise I might switch onto a 152 HTH.

For reference I weigh 155-160lbs, 9.5 boot and I usually ride a 154 Custom with Genesis.

My favorite rides are the CA's and FA's, and the HTH fits me well.   Love it. 

 

I'm 155lbs, size 9 Ions and Genesis X.

 

Merry Christmas all.

I’m 155lb with a size 8.5 boots.  The 152 is perfect!

Dang now I'm really curious if I should make the switch to a 152

I'm 170lbs boot size 9US and the 156 HTH rides well for me... stable, nimble, quick turns.

Agreed!  Perfect for East Coast trees and tiny turns 😉

It just goes to show, different strokes and all that.  I've got a 156 HTH and every time I ride it, it feels softer to me, or maybe I'm just getting more used to the flex pattern.  But it's so turny I'm sure I'd be happy on a 160 as well.  Of course at 5' 10' 185 I'm a fat slob sexier than you guys, so there's that.

I first had it loaded up with Union Ultras but swapped them out for Malavitas, which to me tamed the response a bit and are a perfect match.

Overall I'm loving the HTH and outside of Burton fishy shapes, it may well end up being my favorite B board ever.  I can't imagine a better tree board for tight lines.  

Merry Christmas ya'll

I just hot waxed my new HTH and while I was scraping the wax off I noticed that tha base is little bumpy where the family tree logo is. I assumed that it is because the logo is actually cut out. When I ran my figers over it I can actually felt it. After that, I checked the flatness of the basse with a ruler and flash light and noticed that the base is more than little bumpy (see images). 

This is already the fourth Burton board in a raw, which has more than a 0.6 mm (Burton’s max deviation) of a deviation in a flatness. I have returned the past three and got my money back, but I really don’t want to send this one back as it is already sold out everywhere.

Is this a common error? As I said, it is the fourth board in a row with that defect, and I don’t think that I have that kind of a “luck” that every Burton board I purchase haven’t flat base. 

Will this have a huge impact on riding it?

Sounds dangerous. Send it here and I'll be brave and the guinea pig on this.

The Flight Attendant I had had a messed up base. I think it was concave because after a base grind only the edges had structure lol. The shop manager said it's common with Burtons.

Send it back and get a 2021 model instead...next year.
