Yea, I would stick with looking for a 157 if you are set on the TRice only because I've read on this forum it is super stiff and while I do suggest a longer board than snowklinger, I don't believe that longer is always better.

Again... I don't want to dissuade you too much from your original choice of a Salomon's Man's Board... because once you start chasing for the "perfect board" you are never going to stop. Trust me, I know from experience.

UPDATE: From the other thread... I saw some mention a Burton Sherlock as a good freestyle powder board (I'm beginning to mix and that other thread up). There happens to be one used 157 model in very good condition on sale at Geartrade for 50% off. There was also a TRS 159 (which I "think" is what the TRice is based on) for 54% off, but it has a lot of maintenance issues with it (needs base repair, base grind, edge redone... a bit of a hassle).
