I know everyone on here says the bigger the better but the guys at performance ski told me it is all about weight not height and the 146 one is insanely huge for really heavy guys. Since the new shape has more surface area they recommended the 142. I know I could ride both just wondering what would be the best. I was thinking of trying to get a good deal on a time bomb in a 146 that way it would be huge but light. Right now I am on a witness 144 and it does feel a tad big heavy and slow on the water.
I rode a 146 One ATR then switched to a 142 .... I liked the 142 better and I am slightly larger than you (6.2 - 210) .... Easier to control the 142 in the air ... but that was just my experience.... I ended up switching back to my old LF Watson 142 .... But if by any chance if you are looking for a good deal on a 142 Ronix one 2012 Madallo I have one .... used one time and I decided to stick with a liquid force
Selling it for 250.00 PM if interested
