Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I actually demoed the Dark Series at Whistler last year (same week I demoed the TRice). Definitely liked it, but went with TRice because it is a true twin and I ride switch alot, while the Dark Series is directional (not even a directional twin according to LT). Same reasoning for shying from the Billy Goat, which is at least a directional twin.

Very helpful input. Thanks.

For both of you (and anyone else): one thing I have been wondering is if I bought these boards too long. Moving both down to 157 narrows the waist on the TRice to 25.8 from 26, and narrows the tip/tail on the Banana Magic to 30.1 from 30.6 (waist width only drops 0.1cm).
Seems like only a small improvement for alot of expense if I was to size down though.

So, any thoughts on dropping down to 157 for both boards?
