Lib tech TRS vs. NS SL

Hey i posted a thread on here last week asking about a jib board, well now im looking for an all mountain freeride board. Im 5'8" and weigh 185, as the title says ive been researching a lot of boards and think i have narrowed it down to these, i also thought about the heritage but i dont no if that will be too much board for me. I ride in Tahoe, so we do get some icy days, will the magna-traction help out a lot with dealing with the ice? I wont be taking this board through the park at all, just looking for a board that handles the mountain and some powder. Thanks!

Not trying to start an argument, just looking for people opinions who have rode one or both of these boards

The trs is a twin the sl is set back, trs has a radial sidecut with mag the sl has a modified quadratic (for lack of a better term). Both are highly respected shred sticks. A jamie lynn is simalar to a trs with some set back.

Don't worry your from Tahoe so you don't have to rep anyone . Seriously though either one will probably work for you. If your are going to be riding in pow often a board with some setback (Jamie Lynn, Altered Genetics, Dark Series) would probably be a good idea.

That was pointed at me.

What did you end up getting Hawkfan?

It's all good man , still waiting on my bonus from work but I've decided to go with the Billy Goat. I figure if it's good enough for Temple to win the Banked Slalom 4 times with then it's good enough for me.

What size would you guys recommend? If I go with the Lib tech I was leaning towards the 159? Or do you think a 157 would work for riding the mountain and pow?
