Comparing Lib Tech TRS and GNU Riders Choice

I'm looking to upgrade form my GNU carbon credit 150 to either the TRS or Riders Choice, or anything in a C2. Just looking for information on the differences or compromises i might be making. I'm looking at the 148 and 151 in a TRS and the 151.5 riders choice. I have a size 7 US boot (short ass), looking for something fun, fast and responsive. Mostly ride the hard pack of Aus, not too much focus on park atm but that may change.

Cheers guys,
Tim.

I believe that the TRS and Riders Choice are virtually identical except that the Riders Choice has a sintered base and the TRS has an extruded base. Go with the Riders Choice.

Maybe a Smokin KT-22 cause they wrap their edges and are a small company.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Thats exactly the reason i went with the Riders Choice. Just rode it today and I think it was a good decision! One more for the Riders Choice.
