Help me choose! TRice or SKUNK APE

This week I was the only one at the resort and that allowed me to work on my carving. I was to the point of dragging my toes & heels on my btx 160 Phoenix. I have 11.5 boots and the waist is 25.4cm. I ride with a 23 inch stance at 15 degrees. I wanted to buy a 161 TRice but am afraid the 26cm waist may not be wide enough. From pics the Camber & Rocker on the Trice almost make the board look flat. The TRS or skunk appears to have more rocker than camber. Plus I only weigh 170lbs. I guess their is also the Riders Choice Wide. I would like a sintered base.

Dark series wide 161
or just turn your bindings to like +40 on both like an alpine board when you want to carve it up.
The C2BTX will have better edge hold than a regular BTX as well.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'
