lib tech trs 154 or 157 for Japan
 
Hi all

I am going to japan this feb and I am looking for a new stick; obviously for deep pow but with some good freestyle capabilities.

I was thus looking at the lib tech trs but can't decide between 154 or 157.

I am 5'6 and 148lbs, what do you advise?

Thanks

I think at 148 you'd still be ok at 154cm.

I was riding my 2014 TRS @154cm in some deep stuff today and I'm 160lbs.

Thanks

Do you ride with a setback or centered? How does it drive in deep pow, are you floating easily or using a lot your back foot?

Alo I have heard that lib tech board are longer than what the size shown, meaning a 154 is closer to 156, is it the case?

Just for japan? There are a few resident riders here based in Japan. That's a different beast, Japan pow. If you need to ride that board here you'll probably have to compromise.

It will not be only for japan but for the powder days everywhere else like whistler for instance.
Which compromise are you talking about?
