I went with the 159 goat split...haven't rode either board; but since got small feet and the goat is narrower, has deeper side cut, less pronounced mag to which 3 other lib/gnu mags I've rode were a bit grabby. Iirc and it was a while ago, the shop guy noted and showed the cam was slightly different where it started, the goat had slightly less rocker and that the rice had some stiffer carbon? strips on the edge and thus torsionally different...but idk...it was a while ago. So at least to my needs and preference for quick edge to edge response, less rocker and envisioning a more technical billygoat style of riding...it was a fairly clear choice.
