Default T. Rice Pro sizing question

All,

Thinking about picking up a T. Rice for an all-mountain, off the beaten track, slayer.

I am 5'10, and my weight fluctuates between 138-150lbs. I ride in the east coast, but will be using this board a lot out west.

I never go in the park, but do like a lot of maneuverability through trees and tight lines. Also like natural features.

Would the 153 or 157 be best for me? Lately I have been riding smaller boards and wanted to try something like a 155 this year, but really wanting to try the T. Rice. I am leaning towards the 153.

Thoughts?

either one works for you, but you answered your own question about wanting the shorter one.

Im about 170-180 and was rocking the 153 no problem but it is an 09 and very stiff compared to the latest model. If I were to pick up the newest one Id go 157.

I'm 6' and about 180 lbs and I ride a T. Rice 161.5 and I love it. Just as a FYI, the 153 and 157's have round noses and tails while the 161 and above have pointed noses and tailes. I find mine is great everywhere on the mountain and also just tears through the pow. I use it for pretty much everything but the park. If your going to be sticking to the east coast more than anything, I say go with the smaller ones, but if your coming out west and plan to hit the pow alot, 161.5 is perfect all-mountain that also floats so nicely.

If your completely set on the shorter, blunded ends, either one would be nice, but if you plan to hit any kind of jumps I would be a little skeptical about a 153 on bigger kickers. If you want to use it for everything, go 157 or 161 if you are always on the hunt for pow like me. lol

Well I never go into the park and never really hit big kickers. I mainly do all-mountain, trees, hit natual features. Mainly enjoy what the mountain has to offer. I may hit a box like once a year. Should I be looking at a different board? I just want something more aggressive that I can just bomb runs and be aggressive through un-groomed terrain.
