Short edit w/ the Pencil from our quick roadtrip to Tremblant. Arguably our most memorable one there, to date. Great conditions, short lines even with Covid protocols. But did go early in the work week, tbf.

Glad you're finally getting out @GD. Resort closures would have been rough on my sanity, riding has been a huge outlet for me amid all this nonsense. 

Echo that you look like you'd be a fun riding buddy! Would love to ride in the futche!!!

He’s rad to ride with. Always a good time with @GD.

... now if only he’d ride faster I wouldn’t have to wait so long at the bottom.

GD:  Looks good - I'm thinking of picking up a pencil myself, already have a Dart.  

What size is yours and what are your specs?

Never-mind dude, I just noticed your specs and 159 in your signature, duh - thanks.

I think I might go with the 159 (I'm in the east too), but I'm kinda thinking I'd prefer a Pencil Plus over the standard.

As far as I know though, the Plus is only available in a 164.  Anyone know if that's correct, or if Korua plans to offer the Plus in a 159 next season?

Pencil Plus only comes in 164. 

@peteri bought my Pencil+ so ask him how it rides.

Loll thanks man, and no worries. Only 164 for the Pencil + from the looks of it.  @awd1105 has both the OG Pencil 64 & the 64 + and loves them both. He may be able to elaborate more about them.

From my own experience, the og line is def more damp and much better in chop. While the Plus line is insanely light and has a bit more energy to them. Really depends which you care more about.

Thanks boys.  The standard Pencil in a 159 may be a better call for me anyway, a little more dampness and the ability to bash through things is always good.  

Having said that, I'm definitely getting a Dart + in the fall.  I love the standard Dart, but having one that is a little freakier and livelier might be fun too.  

Ultimately planning to sell one of them, but in True EL style I'll probably rationalize keeping both.  Because dying with all your toys is apparently the goal around here.

The standard Pencil 164 is hands-down, my absolute favourite board to ride in most conditions, most days. The Pencil+ is incredible, but I’d really only wanna ride it when the snow is good. Both are keepers.
