TRS and Riders Choice Sizing [154/154.5 or 157/157.5]

Hi,

I am trying to figure out what is the proper size from me on Lib tech TRS or Gnu Riders choice. So, I am 5'8'' and my weight varies between 165 lbs to 175 lbs.

Shall I go for TRS 154 or 157?
Shall I go for Riders Choice 154.5 or the 157.5?


This is going to be my only every day board. Meaning a board that i will try to do as many things as I can with it.

It really is preference. What mountain do you ride the most? What kind of terrain is available there?

I am 5'9" and about 200lbs with all of my gear on. I have a 157 TRS for my "big mountain board" and a 149.5 Arbor Draft for my park noodle. My next board will be a 154-156 "jump" board. Arbor Westmark is what I am going for but I might be getting a Rome Mod.

Hi, I would say that I am going to spend 30% of my time in park and try tricks in the mountain. 70% is going to be freeride but with tricks on pow, groomers wherever.
I am asking, because I am not sure if the big once are going to be too big for my height.

Icy conditions and some times powder. Well if I make a projection according to your set up I could go with be smaller sizes (154/154.5).

I'm at 180# and my choice would be a 154.5 for groomers, packed and park (but I don't do park) and <6" of pow. But I already have a 155, 158, 159, 162 and a 164 dependent on conditions.
