Looking at the various post on T.Rice 157, at 160 lbs ... u should get decent performance in deep pow. Nearing 210 lbs ... perhaps a T.Rice 161.5 makes more sense. In my case 175 lbs, T.Rice 157 is a bit risky, 161.5 would be less fun in trees ... perhaps I should get a TRS 159?
Based on your description, probably in this order (true twins from Mervin and NS):
1. Attack Banana
2. Skate Banana
3. Proto HD
4. Banana Magic
5. Proto CT
7. Riders Choice
8. T. Rice
Or, if you can go more pow specific, the Dirty Pillow.
