Kung, you are right, it's a Total Ripper. I was debating between the TRS and the TRICE Pro or HP (I know the TRice Pro is in 159 and 161.5). It's close, but I'm sold on the TRS because I like the narrower profile under center and progressive cut (reminds me of my old Salomon Special). However, given the magna traction and progressive cut, I want to make sure the board can still carve smoothly, which is one of the reasons why I'm leaning toward the the 162...(I am right to assume a longer version of the same board will make longer carves, right?)
Basically, I'm trying to get the all around quiver-killer. I think both the 159 and 162 will work--it's just a matter of what I want to emphasize. Thanks for the heads up about rails in the park.
Walove, are you talking about spinning in the pipe with the 165? Are you on a hybrid cambered like the C2BTX or Power?
