Default what Lib tech board

Hey guys, looking for advice on a board. Mostly crusing around, very little park riding, but I still do want to ride in the park every now and again.
Im 6'3 and 100kgs/220lbs (gym fit) I have 2014 Burton Imperial size US 10 boots. M Mission reflex bindings.

I thought I had a second hand 162cm Lib Tech TRS C2BTX Snowboard 2012 on the way. But that fell though. Turns out its not 162 but 154.

Now, I also have access to a 165cm 2012 Lib Tech Skunk Ape. At a EXTREMLY fair price.

I was also told in another thread that an attack banana would be good.
What are peoples thoughts on the skunk ape.

You should try a GNU danny kass 155 it'll be good for you in the park at your weight and still be poppy and if you are just cruising around the mountain.

For the powder days try to find an old GNU Billy Goat 159 c2BTX or Grab the gnu beast 161 or 162 not sure what is the size off hand, but that is c3.

That will fit your boot size of 10 and weight class.

I'm 10.5 at 210-215 with both gnu DK and GNU BK at 155,159 respectively.

So I actually have own and experiences on both these boards 2012 models.

Agreed.
To each his own, but I also ride 156-158 cm boards at 175 lbs. and find that perfect for me.

I have the attack banana can't go wrong there, and from what i hear the Skunk Ape is pretty bad ass so either way you'll do good. it just depends on your riding preference. i also have the GNU DK lol.

I weigh 165ish and I use a 154-159 depending on the set up, with my attack banana at 156

Where do you ride, and do you have another board that you could use on days when its icy?

I have a Sherlock and I really like it for days with soft snow - I ride mostly Toronto area, and I have a cambered board that I keep the edges super sharp on for icy days.

When I go out west I ride the Sherlock mostly, here in the east it gets less use due to the conditions we typically get.

It's a great board for cruising around an having fun on, and it's fine for a run through the park once in a while.

I would def go with a 160 or bigger. I'm 6'1", 195lbs and size 11 boots I ride a 159 and 161. Any smaller you get going quick or in the pow and your gonna be wishing you had a bigger board.

At this stage, I ride over in NZ. And down in Aus for their season (yes we do get some nice soft days) But fingers crossed the missus lands a job in a oil field over in Ontario Canada
Im leaning towards the sherlock, The price is good to go at $200 aud.
