Default Triumph or T6

Hi
I decided to get my first snb this winter and after demo day I set my mind
on Burton's Triumph 169. I am little over 6 ' and 210lb. When it came to get
Triumph one of my friends who runs board shop in the province offered me T6
162 for the same price as I was offered Triumph. I can't make up my mind.
Can anyone help me here what would be better choice for me ??
Thanks
Kris

You don't say what type of riding you're into, and where you do it.

Well, I can only answer half the question, but I've been using a new
Triumph for my last trip, as has a buddy, and we're both very pleased
with them. Of, course the riding was all heli (see other post), so
maybe not that representative :-)

If you are just freeriding, the T6 will be nice - but keep in mind that
they will not warranty the board if you decide to try your hand at any
rails.

Thanks for all the replies. I ended up buying Burton Baron 167 considering
my weight 90 kg/ 217 lb and boot size 11 I think that was the best choice
and P1 Carbon bindings. I got two more weeks before I go snowboarding Can;t
wait.
Thanks again for your opinions.
Have a wonderful day
Kris
