Default 2011 Lib Tech TRS Vs. T. Rice... Which one to get?

Hey all, I was pretty set on getting the Lib Tech T. Rice 157 this season. I've been browsing the web and reading up on reviews and have been pretty happy about the positive views. But then I had a buddy recommend me the TRS 157 and I've read some reviews and found people to be just as happy with it.

Now I'm just wondering if I'm overthinking things and should just get the T Rice like I planned or switch and go with the TRS.

The board I'm replacing is a old Forum Devun Walsh which I believe is a pretty stiff board and I really liked it but it's quite beat up and needs to be retired.

I'm 5'10" 180pnds.

I'd say I'm a intermediate rider I usually just stick to the runs and bomb around, ride through the trees. Up to now I don't really go to the park but would like to do more natural hits on the sides of runs and possibly hit the park for some kickers but don't see myself really doing alot of rails and jibs.

I'm 24 yrs old and live in Vancouver. So I'm usually at Whistler, Cypress, Baker

Thanks...

Get the t rice. A little more sleek and agile. You'll love it.

T. Rice all the way. Has a sintered base rather than an extruded base like the TRS and also is stiffer so it will fit your style of riding better.

Def go with the T Rice and if you can afford it or find a deal check out the T Rice with Horsepower, love the top sheet on that!

i like the travis rice a bit better. you would do well on either the 157 or 161.5, depending on which one feels better for you
