Default Buying Libtech TRS BTX

I'm about to buy the Libtech TRS BTX... I just wanna make sure I buy the right size. I'm planning on getting the 157 I'm 6foot about 160-165, would a 157 be the right size or should I drop down to the 154. 90% of the time I do all mountain riding, never really mess with the park.

You can ride a shorter board with banana tech, so I would go with the 157. I ride a 59 6ft 190 lbs.. If you spend more than fifty % of your time in the park and pipe go with the 54 You are going to love the stick., My second year on one... BTX is alot of fun and performs everywhere.

You should go with the 159 for sure, because of your height and riding preference. 154 is way too short, and even 157. Comparing to the T.Rice is pointless, since the TRS is narrower all around.

I just got a 159 TRS BTX that I can't wait to try out...

This board seems to me to be a sketcky board Not in a bad way....just seems to be that it turns on a dime! a good thing!
But if you are a more big mt. rider (Forgive the term) meaning more interested in fast turns at speed vs. quick slow tech. turns in a park, would'nt the longer board still be the way to go?...considering the loose truck (Skating term) scenario, wich would/could throw some outta control real quick?
Sorry for the runnon!
