Default GNU Dk or Lib T. Rice pro

Has anybody ridden both of these? I have heard the DK has less rocker but is it true? I think I have narrowed it down to these two.

From my experience, the T. Rice already has less rocker compared to other rocker-hybrid boards that I have tried. That, along with is being a bit more stiff make it an excellent carving board IMO.

Just compared both boards side by side and the DK has more rocker than the TRice.

Thanks your guys info has helped considerably. What size would you recomend for 175lb rider. I pretty much hit up most of the mtn with little time in the park but would like to learn. 157 or 161

Don't know about the DK, but I ride the TRice. If you go with the Rice I'd suggest you get the 157. I'm 6'4'' 210 and ride the 161 and it's a good size for me...smaller than I've ridden before, but still floats in the powder well for a board its size.

I'm 6'3", 180 and I ride the 161.5 I think it is the perfect size for all mountain riding. Great on jumps, holds a carved line like no other, and floats in the pow. Super fast all mountain destroyer. IMO, I wouldn't want a smaller board because it would have less carving potential.

P3 Does one feel like a better all mtn board than the other? The Rice Graphics are a little loud!
