Im 5' 7" and ride the pickle in a size 153cm.

Love the way it handles everywhere. Magnetraction is wonderful. for me it turned icy heelside chatter into smooth turns. Wish it had a bit more snap
like a cambered board, but small price to pay for a board that does everything.

I had to make a choice earlier this season of a Pickle or a Riders Choice.

There are 2 main differences between the 2. The Pickle has an asymmetrical side cut. Basically the heelside is cut a little deeper to help with turns.

The Riders Choice is a C2BTX, the Pickle is a BTX. Riders Choice is a rocker/camber hybrid.


I got the Riders Choice because I like to rider super fast sometimes. The C2BTX is a lot more stable at high speed. It does well in the park as well as on pow days.


I have had several pow days on my R.C. and It does surprisingly well. It also bombs down icy conditions and doesn't loose the edge.



My wife bought a Girls Pickle and can't keep up with me cause of the chatter when going fast.


Hope that helps.

even though i agree about stability, i really dont feel any issues when riding my skate banana 56 at high speeds. i mean that's probably due to the fact that the 56 is stiffer than the 53, and certainly compared to your wife's park pickle.

OP, go with the pickle. The BTX will help with the ice and, in terms of versatility, the pickle and park star would be rated the same.
