Another help me pick a board thread...

Help me pick out a new board. I narrowed it down to a few already but still not sure which one would be the best for me. I am 511 tall and weight about 195. I ride mostly in the Midwest, which is usually manmade snow, groomed, and it can get pretty icy, almost never powder. I never do park, but I am starting to do small jumps and would like to progress in that area. I would consider myself an intermediate rider. Currently, I ride a 2006/2007 Burton Clash 160 and I think its time to get a more advance/better board. This is my 2nd board. I do not need a wide board. My top choice right now is Never Summer Heritage 158, but also these in no particular order:
Ride Berzerker 158
Ride Antic 157
Lib-Tech Attack Banana
Lib-Tech LaNina MC
Lib-Tech Travis Rice Pro 157
Lib-tech TRS 157
GNU Dirty Pillow 159

For your riding conditions, riding style, and riding level, I would recommend the TRS. I think you will have a ton of fun on it, and out of all of those I think it has the most MTX.

I read up more on the TRS and it looks to be a great board. What would be a good size? I'm thinking either 157 or 159. I felt with the clash 160, it was hard to control at slow speed (might be the board also) and it took a lot of effort to throw from side to side on very steep slopes, that is why I am considering the 157 but also at the same time I do not want to lose the stability of a longer board while going fast.

IMO, go with the 157 or even down to a 154-155 if they have that in the board you are looking at...i am 6 foot and 210 lbs and i ride a 156/157 and in no way feel its too short...might even drop down in size if i get a park only board

At 195 I would go 159... I'm 30 lbs less and my all mountain board is a T.Rice 157.

I ride a 154 TRS @ 140lbs.

Its a great board for what you are looking for and I would go for a 157 or 159.

I am 5'10 170 and rode the 157. I think either the 157 or 159 will work. I doubt you will notice any difference, 2cm is such a small amount.
