The 2013 RC has the asymmetrical sidecut, but only some models of the 2012 RC have that. I think it's the ones labelled PTX and they have a different topsheet.

I have a CC and I like it, haven't tried the other 2 boards.

I also have a CC, it was my first board and I still use it from time to time....I love it.

If money is no object, why not get the RC?

Mervin nerds can correct me on this, but I'm pretty sure while the CORE of the Skatebananna is different, the TNT base is the same as GNU's CB397898745XNiner (no idea what it's called, but it's a silly name) extruded base. SO the carbon credit, essentially, has the same base. I've also heard the skate bananna is a bit softer than the Carbon Credit, which is not super soft at all.

My concern with the RC is that I'm a smaller/lighter guy (5'7 125lbs) and I'm worried that the 151.5 might be a bit too big to be playful.

You are on the VERY light side of that board, weight wise. For reference I have an inch and 30lbs on you and I'd ride a 151.5 for playfulness. That being said, it will hold up for you at speed and steeper stuff...iono.

Well, any shorter and he's looking at chick boards

Like someone said, the Lib Tech TRS comes in shorter / narrower sizes, it's supposed to be pretty close to a RC (without the asymm sidecut).

EDIT:

TRS 148N
http://www.lib-tech.com/snowboards/t...ripper-series/

Waist width is pretty narrow though (23.7cm), that may be an issue.

Alright, I'm not THAT short!

The TRS is slightly out of my price range.

I think it's looking like a 147 CC might be the board for me.

That's a good choice because you're tall for your weight. The shape should make it a little more playful feeling as well.

The problem isn't your size, it's that you are too damn skinny.
Eat yo soup!

Didn't know the CC came in 147, that could be a good fit.
Again, careful with the waist width.

So if I went with the 147 CC, would you guys say that it's an upgrade over the Whammy Bar for more all around riding?
