its a great trail machine but it will need a longer track to play in the deep stuff well. your main goal is to have a track that is both trail friendly ie. lug height is 1.5 or less and longer enough with the lug height to provide good floatation. now with this being said the ext version of the f7 could work well but if you will be playing in deep snow a 144x 1.5 is a minimum imo. you could go 136 with a 1.75" lug but now your lugs are far more likely to break off. a 136 with 1.5 would be great on the trails but your ability to climb any kind of slope is limited. how soon were you looking to buy a sled. i am going out west with a few people running 136x 1.75 tracks and myself running a 144x1.5 so i could give your more insight after the first week in jan.Originally posted by Hurley_03

MUCH MUCH APPRECIATED!
