New snowboard
 
Hey guys I'm looking at a few different snowboards this year and a little advise or steer me in the right direction would be awesome. I'm about an intermediate snowboarder nothing to special. I weigh roughly 215lbs 6'4 and size 11 boots. I mostly ride groomers with it being icy towards the end of the day with a very slight chance pow ride and some jumps mixed into my daily rides. Now down to my choices I'm looking at either the...

Arbor Element RX 157
GNU Riders Choice 157.5
K2 Turbo dream 159

Thanks in advance!

if you are looking for pop then don't get the GNU riders choice at 157.5.

It doesn't have any at your weight.

Try the Lib-Tech T.Rice 153/157/161.5 or the GNU Danny Kass 155/158.

The TRICE is all the same flex at any size while the DKASS is stiffer as you move up.

i guess they changed the Trice flex for this year.

its progressive with size for the regular pro version and special art of flight version, but the hp (horsepower) is all the same flex at 7.

I have heard great reviews on the riders choice. If you ride on the east coast like i do, Magna-traction is amazing. It really helps hold an edge on ice.

Okay awesome guys i'll check that one out as well. I've heard a lot of good things about the Arbor boards. Any input on them as well?
