Lib Tech TRS for a female?

Hi all,

I am an advanced female snowboarder (5'4, 110 pounds) and am wondering if folks on this forum think this board would be good for me. I love to ride in the trees, on moguls, and off-piste, but unfortunately also spend a lot of time riding on ice in Vermont. My current board is a 2011 Never Summer Infinity, which I love, but I'm interested in switching to something a bit more aggressive.

Thoughts?

Thank you!

no reason not to other than board size. the roxy eminence is a mervin board with magnetraction.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Thanks - my foot size is 5.5.

I realize this is s vague question, I just haven't heard much about the Lib Tech for women and want to make sure there isn't something i'm missing...

Would the Eminence be a better choice? Should I consider something else?

Thanks again!

I believe Lib markets the TRS available to women under the "narrows" sizing--same board with a narrower waist for smaller feet and geared toward the lighter rider.

your weight, foot size and burmont...

Gnu bpro 146 in either c2 or c3 for more tradition camber feel, more of a charger, more pop and perhaps better for ice

Bpro perhaps slightly less stiff than a men's trs but close and you don't weight much...
bpro is quite abit stiffer than an infinity

That's what I've gathered as well. Is this a problem? I am currently riding a relatively flexible board (Never Summer Infinity) - will the Lib Tech be too stiff for me? I want a more aggressive board, but not if I won't be able to ride it in powder and through trees.

I haven't been able to find much feedback on this board for females, so I guess I am just looking for general thoughts

Thanks!

Thanks - Is the bpro similar to the Lib Tech? How are they different?

I feel like I should reframe my original question (sorry, not super experienced with message-boarding - should I start a new thread?).

I am looking for a more aggressive board to "upgrade" from my NS infinity. What is a good board for me? Would the Lib Tech TRS Narrows be appropriate?

Thank you!

lib and gnu are made by the same folks at the same place..really not any difference imho. you probably would like the bpro in a c2 for easy riding in pow, more playful...but def more aggressive than an infinity

i'd imagine the trs vs bpro is slightly softer flex for women...but it will be plenty of stiffness
