*SNIP*

Still on the fence. Is the TRS light and flex enough to get away with an extra inch longer than what I usually ride? Or can I get it an inch shorter and not get in trouble in pow and on fast/icy groomers thanks to the supposedly grippy edges?

Why don't they just make one in 152 or 153
Holy fuck it's only an inch! I went from a 153 FS to a 159 FR oriented board with a wider stance width, and it only took a couple runs to get used to the difference. You're talking about 3 cm on identical boards!

In all seriousness if you're on hardpack/ice a lot you want more effective edge to dig in. You're the same height as me so no reason you could swing a 154 around. Don't be a pussy.

And why is that?
