I am a new member here and would love your advice on a new board purchase. I have been boarding for 4 years. I currently own a 2008 Lib Tech TRS 162 and Thirty-Two TM-Two boots size 12. I am 5'11" and when I bought the board I was 210 lbs, now I am closer to the 180 lb mark. I love the board, however as I progressed into tight trees I found that this was difficult to do. It might be just my skill level, or the board. I would consider myself an advanced rider.
-I do not enter the park.
-I rarely do groomers
-I like trees and off the beaten track
-I want to be able to corner better and have more control on very steep mountain terrain
I am looking at purchasing a new board and would like to stick with LibTech. I cant seem to find the difference or what would be best for my style of riding between the Travis Rice Pro, Travis Rice Pro HP and the Total Ripper series. I was also leaning towards the 157 this time.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
