Default Travis Rice vs Riders Choice

My Emma Peel retired last week, so I need a new board. I've narrowed it down to either the T.Rice BTX 161.5 or the Riders Choice Wide in a 158 or 162. I've located the Rice and hope to demo it tomorrow, but so far haven't found a Choice to demo. Has anyone ridden both of these boards? Can you weigh-in? Do you notice a real difference between C2 and regular banana?
Mainly I'm interested in stability at speed and laying down nice turns. The Rice sounds like it's probably a bit more of a "steep & deep" board, but I like the added width of the Choice. Also, the softer flex on the Choice feels like it could be a more fun all-around board. If the Choice handles speed, steeps, carving and powder well I think I might go for the Choice. But if the C2 camber makes a noticeable difference when turning and going fast then I'm more inclined to go for the Rice.
Really wish I could just find a Choice to demo...
