Default Gnu Riders Choice BTX vs. Lib Tech T.Rice BTX

I recently demoed the Burton Hero and absolutely loved the reverse camber, but heard great things about the Mervin magnatraction so wanted to try that out before I bought a new board. I got a chance to demo the Gnu Street Series yesterday and think mtx is amazing, but I want a board a little more all-mountain. I've heard great things about both the Gnu R/C btx and the Lib t.rice btx but can't decide which direction to go. I'm only 5'7" and heard you can go 3 cm shorter with the reverse camber so I was thinking of going for the t.rice 153 over the r/c 154.5. I'm just looking to see if anyone has any experience with either of the boards since I see they're both sold out everywhere. Also, any binding recommendations would be great too. I have Salomon Synapse boots which are pretty stiff so I'm looking for pretty flexible bindings. Thanks for the help!

Depends on your weight not your height. If your around 140-160 than the 153 will be good. More than that then jump to the next size. Definitely the Rice over the Choice. The Choice is such a plank. Its a board for big dudes not wanting to ride 165's and shiz.

Eh, the T.Rice isn't your average banana either.

I'm actually 150 so right in the middle of the weight class you gave. Sounds like the t.rice might be the way to go. i'm having trouble finding both so here's to hoping they're not sold out everywhere. thanks for the input
