Default POW - billy goat or TRS?

Hello Fellow Snowboarders,

My name is Gabe and I am a 24 year old snowboarder from Germany (180 lbs, 6'1''). I have been surfing this forum for quite some time now, because there is much more information here about Mervin boards than in the European forums I am active in. Special thanks to Snowolf for his Billy Goat review!!

Still I wasn't able to make a decision about which board to get. Main requirement: FLOAT! But this will be my only board, so I would like to maintain the possibility to ride switch and occasioally hit a smaller kicker, but I never go to the park. My focus is on those long runs in the deep stuff where your legs burn!

I was convinced by the banana magic, but since this is very expensive I am now looking at the TRS and the Billy Goat. My questions are:

1. Which one should I chose for my riding style?
2. Which size (159 or 162)?
3. Is there another Mervin board that's even better for my riding style?

Many thanks in advance!!!
Gabe
