Riders choice v trs
This is my first post so I hope this hasn't been done before.
I'm looking at getting a new board and can't decide between the gnu riders choice and the lib tech trs (both in c2btx). I know they are extremely similar boards but does anyone know of any differences that make one the better choice?
I'm also not sure of what size to get - 151 or 154? I'm 5'10 and 134lbs and size 8us. My last board was a Burton operator 152 and that didn't feel to long or short but this board is completely different. I have ridden a park pickle 150 and loved the rocker and flex but didn't spend too much time on it so I couldnt tell if it was too short especially because I will be riding mountain as well as park and I want to go back to Japan so something that will be good in the pow.
I did look at the riders choice in 154.5 in the shop and it was still just under my chin (I've heard the between the chin and nose thing) but I do like to ride a little shorter because I'm so light.
I have been reading a fair bit and have heard that the TNT base on the trs is not very good as it doesn't hold wax well and it is quite soft (gets damaged easily). Does anyone know if this is correct and if so if the riders choice is any better.
I am also open to other board suggestions but have looked at most (park pickle/skate banana/t. Rice/ never summer (wish I could get one in Australia).
Thanks for any help guys
Really appreciate it
