Same situation...asking myself if I should get the 157 blunt or the sweet 161 pointy...( 5>10 / 65kg./ 143lb.
I want a solid all-mountain board. I'm 5'10", 175 lbs, size 10.5 boot, intermediate rider.
I'm trying to decide between buying the 2010 Dark Series (158) or waiting and getting the 2011 TRS or Travis Rice pro model (157).
The T Rice pro model is a bit stiffer than the TRS which i figured would be a little better for my riding style, which is definitely more groomed runs than park/jumping but i'm not sure if the blunt shape of the 157 will make a difference in my riding.
Can anyone chime in on this?
