Deciding between the Skate Banana or TRS

Hey, first time poster, long time reader

I'm due for a new board, after using my Alibi 154 for almost 5 years now. I spend more time doing powder freeride, so its maybe 85% pow and 15% park. My weight is 140lbs and 5'5" tall.

What would you guys prefer, the Skate Banana or TRS? Are the only differences the stiffness and directional tip? Also, what length should I use? I was thinking the 151, because the next one up is 156.

id look into the trs or the t.rice. the skate banana is a park board. the trs is allmountain about 60run/40park. the t.rice is stiffer than the trs so its even more freeride oriented.

i weigh about 140lbs and i ride a 154 trs mtx and the size works great.

TRS- much better all around board. Unless you're young and growing, I'd go for the 151- otherwise grow into the 156
