Default lib tech t rice pro HP 2012 153 vs 157

Hi everyone looking for some opinion on the sizes for travis rice hp board

Height:5"8
Weight:160lbs
Style: freeride /cruising/bombing/big jumps (no jibbing at all, so dont care for softer flexing boards)

I hear the t rice 153 and 157 are blunted tips, so they ride a size bigger. I ride 157cm usually but many people told me the t rice rides a size bigger. Keep in mind again i like to bomb and carve down hills at high speed and not using this for a jib deck but for bug landings and etc. thanks!

What's your foot size? I'm 5'5" 160 size 9 boot and ride a T.Rice 157 for all mountain... love it for charging and jumps but I'm looking at something different for next season with a narrower waist.

With 8.5 feet I would look at the Dark if you want to stay with Mervin. Personally I'm looking at the Gnu Billy Goat, NS Cobra and Raptor for next season...
All have a narrower waist than the T.Rice. Don't get me wrong, I love the board but it's a bit of work to turn if you're not maching...

YEP! If it's your only board and you get some pow days you might want to go one size up. Fortunately I have a 160 Mullet for pow days so I'm looking at 155-156 for my next all mountain board...

would the t rice 157 work as a pow board though? or its still on the short side, despite the blunted tips
