Default 2010 Lib Tech TRS 162?

Is this board too big for a 6' 180lb guy? I'm all freeride, and not looking to hit the park. I found a good deal on a new one and don't know if I should pull the trigger. I had settled on a 2011 Gnu Riders Choice c2 BTX, but now I don't know. I am willing to wait, if there will be some good deals in the spring. Anyone know if Trusnow has an annual sale like the one that got them in trouble with Burton last year?

It will be a good size. Personally I'd go a bit smaller.

What kind of conditions do you ride in?

Mostly groomers with occasional icy conditions.

I was going to get the 2011 CT BTX Gnu Riders Choice in a 157.5 but I'm not sure the c2 is worth an extra $200 over the 2010 TRS. I currently ride a 161 k2 Illusion cambered board, and am looking to increase my skill level. Most of what I've read has been very positive regarding the riders choice, and that I could get a smaller board with the banana tech. I'm not going to be in the park, and may just hit small jumps along the trails.

So I guess my question is, do I drop $350 on the 2010 trs or wait to see if there will be a big sale online in the spring and pick up the riders choice or possibly something like the Burton Sherlock?

C2BTX is more stable at high speed than BTX on groomers.

I have no stability problems at high speed on my BTX skate banana. I honestly don't understand everyones hype about that issue. I couldn't feel any difference in high speed stability compared to my old non btx GNU.

I have not ridden the c2 boards yet.

If I were in your position, I'd spend the 350 on the BTX TRS.

I have, and love that board. It is my all-mountain board, and the board I ride most. The only issue is that the tnt base is extruded, not really that big of a deal but if you went with the riders choice that base is sintered. I am 6' 195 and ride the 162, I feel its a perfect fit.

BTX is more loose at high speeds than a regular cambered board. You can still charge hard on a BTX, it is just more loose. C2 takes some of that away.
