sure, if you want to split straws.
Do you think most of the people that buy the trice are getting it for big mountain or just for regular riding, or even for freestyle?
and which one are you recommending to the OP?
I think most people buy based on graphics or popularity haha.
I didn't recommend one for him because I'm sure he'd be happy with either unless like you alluded to, he rides the boards the way they were intended to.
I just gave what I'd personally choose depending on how and where I would ride.
