Would the Obrien Natural 144 be too big for a 6 foot 190 lb. guy? I'm currently riding an 04 Hyperlite Era 140 and it feel ok. Any input is appreciated.

i'm 5'8 , 180 on the natural 139, almost bought the 144. its preference. the bigger size will soften up your landings and give you a bit more pop. the natty is so light i doubt it would affect swing weight for spins at all. the natty is a completely different ride from the era i think tho.

Chris I am having the same trouble deciding. I'm 5'9, 145 lbs and can't decide between the 134 or 139 Natural. I would think you'd be more comfortable on the 144, I'll probably go with the 134.

Come on guys, help a bruva out here. Any more thoughts on this kid hook'in himself up with a new setup. I just ordered the CWB Zeuse bindings yesterday and am looking to order the 06 Natural 144, shipped free for 250. 144 is the only size they have. Go or no go?

The 144 should be good you can ride the 139 or the 144.
The 144 is good for riders 170 lbs. to 250 lbs
The 139 is rated for riders 140 lbs. to 220 lbs.

Matt, great insight. I fall into two sizes. I was looking for input from individuals with practical experience.
