I actually liked the One Hitter more than the HTH. felt more lively. 

I’m the opposite I had the hyperspace never really liked it. Felt like it was slow edge to edge and not very lively.   The HTH feels so much quicker and more lively. I guess that’s why they make 52 flavors of ice cream....

I loved the HTH when I demo'd it at the end of last season.  I ended up buying one at the beginning of this season.  I demo'd the OH about a month after buying the HTH and ended up buying that as well.  Whenever I have a choice between them these days it's the OH every time.  You can ride it everywhere; it's definitely a medium flex under my feet, and I'm pretty close to the middle of the weight range for both boards.

I’ve been looking at picking up an OH now that you guys are talking it up. I passed initially because of the wide waist width thinking it would be wide and slow but now I’ve seen videos of Roope ripping on it and he has a 7 1/2 boot.  I passed on the HTH too because I have a deep thinker and FA. I love both of them and the HTH spec wise looked like it was close to both of them.

^ I thought HTH should ride very differently from both FA and DT though?

it has a bit of a different flex theory going on (soft in the middle, stiff at both ends) but otherwise its a setback directional tapered freerider as mush as the other two boards mentioned

Good to hear the opinions on the HTH.  This is why I hesitated on pulling the trigger.  Like everybody here I get stoked on stacks of decks but I figured I don't need essentially 3 of the same board.  That and at the end of last season I picked up a craigs SJ 52 and 56 and now if it dumps and I'm not on one of those two I feel like I'm cheating myself because they are both so good.

Just one guys opinion but I think the HTH does ride quite a bit differently from the FA and Deep Thinker.  It's been a few years since I've been on an FA but I've been riding my HTH and DT back to back for a few weeks now, and they feel like VERY different rides to me.  The soft middle of the HTH makes it crazy responsive, the DT is way stiffer torsionally between the feet and my particular DT also has noticeably more camber.  

For me, on tight-tree snake runs and/or soft snow it would be hard to have more fun than on the HTH, it's pretty unique and it doesn't handle quite like anything else really.  For steep open terrain or making bomb runs though, I'd probably take the DT every time.

HTH shines in very tight glaze, the foot steering is just so much easier. DT is just a tag beefier and much stiffer torsionally. Both are great boards.

I am on 156 HTH and 157 DT, I would say HTH has better float though.

Completely agree, for me the HTH floats better than any non pow-specific board I've been on, it's not even close.

i'm considering a new split after maybe selling one of mine, the HTH is among top choices for next season. What pricing have you seen? I assumed it'd come in around 900-1,000

Rode the moon buggy at powmow today in some knee deep stuff.. floated great on low angle terrain, steps, and pow wheelies all day.  Dropped some small stuff and it lands great too, only tomahawked once today.

Lookin real hard at a 160 One Hitter.  In NYC, mostly ride from Mt. Creek to up through the Catskills, and been riding since ‘96.  Leaning into old/fast freerider in my mid-30s, but was way into freestyle as a teenager and still love side hits and poppin around.  6’2” 200lbs size 12 Imperials.  

Been riding a 163w Deep Thinker since early last season, that I love, but got to thinkin about a short board for shitty days.  I picked up a new Kilroy Custom 158 for a song and just got two days on it, really fun and love it but it’s a little narrow for my big dawgs.

$1500 on burton website. Hopefully there will be a few seconds floating around at one point...163 sounds very interesting
