Lib Tech Jamie Lynn or Similar Sizing Help
 
I have been searching for weeks and trying not to post this question but I am still having trouble deciding on a size for this board. I am 160 pounds and 5'8" size 11 boot. This is going to be my all mountain board and my first adventure with anything other than reg camber. I ride a 155 regular camber now and should the reverse camber be ridden a size bigger or smaller than that? Demoing now is out of the question for obvious reasons in western NY but I want to pick up a new board before I move to CO this summer. I orginally thought I wanted a 157 but I can't find any and two different places tried to tell me that I wanted a little shorter board as reverse cambers have a longer effective edge.
Keep in mind this is not for the park, it is for trees and all mountain riding and if I feel daring ,some back country stuff. I can pick up a 154 in either a jamie lynn or trs.
Any other thoughts on other boards ?
Thanks

Okay, you need to edit your post....this is some bad juju if go BC.

Here's my thoughts on your situation. With size 11 boots, I'd be a little concerned about the width of the 154 Jamie Lynn at 247mm...that could be pretty narrow for your boots. The 154 TRS with a 253 waist might be the safer choice.

Also, if you think 157 is the right size for you, have you considered the TRice? Its a better all mountain board than the TRS and the waist would be even better for your boot size.

As for the length, not considering the waist, I think at 160 lbs, you could go with a 154 or a 157 and be fine either way.

Nother vote for T-Rice 157...

157 for sure, or the landvic wide if you are worried about boot drag. Banana boards are quick and easy turnin and a bigger board will take you more places around the mountain. Trice if you want a twin, I prefer a directional for all mountain. Its twin shaped so switch is not an issue.
