All-Mountain Board: TRS vs T. Rice vs Jamie Lynn?
I need your help deciding which one of these three boards to purchase. I ride powder, as well as groomers, no parks, etc, with preference to pow whenever possible.
I rate myself at an intermediate level (I rode alpine for several years, then after a pause of about 5, I've been renting gear for the past 2 years).
I am 6'1", weigh about 200-210 lbs, shoe size is about a US 11 (+/- 0.5 depending on brand/model).
The guy at the local Lib Tech shop recommended the TRS, while I am leaning towards T. Rice for two reasons: it's supposed to be a bit stiffer and it has a better (as in more durable?) base.
He also said the JLP is a board fitting my style.
The length I am looking at is about 162 for all models (160 for the JLP), which I think should be optimal for me. Is that OK for me?
I've read several threads (here and on other forums) about the exact same boards and similar style of riding: sometimes people recommend the TRS, sometimes the T. Rice.
