Default Lib Tech TRS Slim sizing help

Hi all

I'm thinking about purchasing a 148 Lib tech TRS Slim (2011).

I am male, 5'5, 132lbs, feet size 25.3cm (7.5 boot??)
I'm am a beginner. Riding groomers, most likely hard pack snow and icy. Very little park. Not too much powder in Australia.

My main concern is whether the 148 is too short?

Ideally i would like NS SL 151 but think it is too wide for my feet (worried about turning/control ability)

Thanks for the help

I ride a NS SL 155 and wear 9.5 boots and have no issues with the width of the board (turning or control). The 151 is 24.3 cm at the waist... doesn't seem like it would be to wide for you with a 25.3 foot size.

Got size 7 feet, 5'6" but 170#; I prefer narrow boards especially for groomers and hardpack for quick edge and snappy turns; best between 23.5 to 23.75 like my 2005 option 158 trinity and 2008 gnu cambered 153 b-nice...both women's boards...then next on my list to get is a gnu b-pro c2x 156. I have wider boards like a 159 banana and a 164 charlie slasher for bigger pow days and I can make them work on groomers but its not a snappy ride...more like steering a boat. However for your size you could make a 148 work on packed or hard but I'd go alittle longer...and btw a size 7.5 to a 9.5 is imho a significant difference when you have small feet.
