What kind of riding do you do and in what conditions?
I got the Banana Magic for all-mountain freestyle - jumps, spins, half pipe, switch, and still able to carve. No jibbing. I know it's on the agressive side of that type of riding but I absolutely love the ride! Incredibly fun, versatile board.

Riding is east coast hard pack/ice. Primarily groomers, and laps in the park through the pipe and kickers. Definitely love magne-traction as a result.

I got the TRice after riding at Whistler last season. While the Magic was quite capable, I wanted something with more stability for charging, but that I could still ride switch.
I got the longer length in both boards for the rare occasions when I could find powder on a trip out west.

Again, to summarize:
5'11"
175 lbs.
Size 9 boots

Thoughts? Keep what I've got? Alternatives?
And thanks.

BTW, my boot size went down from a 10 to a 9 last season, FWIW. I don't know how my body changed to do that, but it did. (Had to get new boots!)
