Banana Magic, Riders Choice Pickle, TRS C2 BTX

Can't decide on which board to get. I am 5'10 168-170, I am looking at all three in the 157 size.

I want a board for mostly free riding, but I want something that I won't need to be on top of my game the whole time. Something that will be fun and easy to play with but can also charge pretty hard when needed.

The magic seems to be the stiffest of the three but also seems to have the most aggressive side cut. The other two seem about the same with the exception that the riders choice has the pickle side cut.

Anyone have any opinions on which one would suit me best?

I'd do the bannana magic if you are riding pow all the time. If you are looking at an all around board the TRS is amazing. It rails nice and in my opinion works anywhere and everywhere in every condition. I have a 54 and weigh 180. I was suprised to see how well it rode in all conditions especially steep and deep. Never did i expect it to float so well in blower conditions. Riders choice is very similar board just the GNU brand.

are you enjoying the 54 at your weight? Was thinking about getting the 154 trs, but the contact length on it kind of worried me. Do you have any issues with stability or holding an edge?
