TRice 153 or 157

Guys and Gals, I'm geared to getting myself a TRice Pro but I'm looking for advice from those who've ridden one before forking out the cash.

Im 5 8", 165 lbs, size 9 boots. I currently ride a 155, and think the 157 would be ideal but I love throwing the spins. Can anyone tell me what the TRice is like, I'm concerned the 157 will be too long for mine short stature. But at the other end of the spectrum, I want the float in the Pow.

What is the 153 like on float?

The only reason for considering the 153 is that I dabble in the park, no jibbing. Want something for the big landings, stable for the run in, good float. Unless anyone has any other lib tech suggestions? Dare i say, TRS....

Any advice would be great.

Cheers

I have a 153 T.Rice. Honestly it measured more like a 155 board. I compare it to my friend's rome 154 board and it's a little bit longer. I've ridden in 40cm + day in whistler and it floats just fine if you keep your speed up and stick to the steeps. At lower angle stuff I get a bit of leg burn but that's expected. I'm 5'5" 150lbs

I ride the T.Rice horsepower 157 and it is dreamy! I am 5'8 178 and it floats. I can spin fine on it, and it is so stable at high speeds. Also, the horsepower is mean fast. If you are new you should not get this board as it goes ridicu-fast. But I definitely approve of this board

Travis or TRS

Im 5,9 165 pounds 16 yrs riding different snowboards .

I ride lib tech 154 and 157 TRS ... I have tested 157 travis rice park board .
About your info , 30 % park , 70 % groomers and powder and big jumps ! If you live on the powder area ! 157 But i will tell you TRS is softer and easy to ride ! I think TRS is way better for you ! its a board do it all ! tRS 157 ::: )) I ride 154 trs im so happy can handel 50 cm fresh powder no problema ! and can go fast ! but not like a bullet ! bullet ride only a directional stiff board ! you get it , if you want to have fun and ride confident every where ride ! TRS ... and get a super lite bindings so the board not be so heavy ! I think Cartel burton or Union Atlas ! or team rider ! .

Saweet, will look into TRS, they've got so much good press so can't really go wrong with it. Cheers.
