Default Lib Tech TRS

What's up fellaz. I'm an intermediate/advanced rider, i.e. I go down any trail without pause and hit medium sized jumps/pipe, but I'm not throwing 540s over 30 ft table tops. Anyway, I've typically riden boards that are "too short" for my height/weight, b/c I enjoy being able to throw the board around freely. I'm considering buying a Lib Tech TRS BTX, but all I can find for a good price is the 162. I weigh 195 lbs and I'm 6'2". I'd use this board as more of a freeriding/powder board, b/c I have a GNU CHB MTX 159 that I can use on the hard pack.

What are you thoughts on this size for me?

Sounds like the perfect size for you 195 lbs (6'2"), 162 cm board, banana. Especially if you are using it as a freeride/pow board. I say go for it. I think you can even go longer for freeride, but i dunno. the TRS is one of the better Lib Tech boards XD, all-mountain; from what I have heard. Minimal MTX for when you don't want to catch an edge =P.

That sounds like a very good size for you even as an everyday board...even moreso when considering what you plan to use it for primarily.

Thanks to both of you for helping make this decision. I got the board last week and took it out for the first time last weekend. The board felt amazing and I'm definitely convinced that banana tech is for real.
