All Mountain/ Freeride Board

I'm looking for an all mountain board reverse camber or hybrid camber that leans more towards freeriding big mountains, steeps, trees, and pow. I've been researching for weeks and am torn between the Lib Tech T Rice, Ride Highlife, Capita BSOD, Arbor Coda, and K2 Turbo Dream. Has anyone rode any of these boards and can recommend one over the other?

T.Rice hands down. go for the 157 if you are an average sized guy and your mind will be blown.

The 161 T.Rice would be perfect then!

Your criteria is similar to mine. Consider: Bataleon Jam, NS Heritage, Ride Highlife, K2 Slayblade, Capita BSOD. Of these, I have/had the Jam and Heritage which I loved. Got a Highlife to try it out, but realized I need a different size, so that's up for sale in a 161 if you're interested.

Alright,I narrowed it down to the BSOD and T Rice. Do you guys think a 161 in TRice and a 162 BSOD is too big for quick turns in trees? I'd like to go with a longer board for pow float but all of my past boards were 156 at the most. I'm nervous it will feel too huge. This will be my first "freeride" board.

I was torn between the 157 and the 161.5 T.Rice and picked the 161.5. If your leaning more towards free ride / pow defiantly get the 161.5. I don't find it too cumbersome in the trees and am about 50 pounds lighter. I've ridden both. The 161.5 was much more enjoyable for my type of free riding. The larger size really shines when you get up to speed.
