Lib Tech T.Rice 157 / 161.5 for deep powder?


After reading countless posts, I have more or less decided on a lib tech T.Rice as my next all mountain board (not powder quiver). Ideally, I would have preferred the 157, easier to navigate trees and spins. But my recent weight gain (muscle hopefully) to 175 lbs and terrain (deep hokkaido powder + long gentle sections) is making me reconsider.

I have rougly 300+ days on the mountain so far and even on deep powder days, I can sort of hack it on my Highlife 155. However, it gets tiring really fast and I am looking for an easier ride. If I choose the T.Rice 157, would the +2 cm & C-R-C profile make enough difference? Or is the 161.5 my only choice?

All opinions are welcome. Thanks
