Out of curiosity why are you getting a T Rice 2011 and a 2012?
I usually buy late into season and rotate the next year. And I read that 157 blunted is kinda different than teh 164 pointy! They are the same just different size... but hey!
I want a playful 157 that can hold it's own on blacks and steeps, hold a good edge and charge hard. And found these T.Rice boards on special. I wish I did not have options... lol
Anyway... I'm still not sure to be honest if the 157 T.Rice is what I need for a playful board!
So maybe just get the 164 and look for a softer rocker in the 157 range instead!!! dunno. But must decide tonight.
