I'm going to have to see these TRices boards in person, they look terrible in the photos I've seen, just a dull jumbled mess, but maybe in person it's a different story.... Super dissapointing. I was hoping for a C3 version of the Horsepower TRice....might have to check out the Hot Knife next year. the Lynn Classic with C3 would be tempting but I think it has a TNT base, not sure how I feel about that.

It is XC2 - a new deal.

No. EC2 is more rocker/less camber in the profile, XC2 is the opposite - more pronounced camber.

C3 Is camber overall. Think of it like a camber board with a small rocker dip between the bindings. The EC2 and XC2 are both Rocker overall with 2 camber sections (in various degrees) outside of the bindings.

That (and a small edit in red).

I got to ride a 2013 T. Rice Pro Libited edition 153 last week. I normally ride a 159cm board but I loved the T Rice Pro! It made me feel like I could conquer anything in my way. I felt more confident with hitting jumps and it floated in pow better than I expected for such a short board. I didn't want to give it back. Now I can't stop thinking of owning one. I like the graphics of the 2013 models and I'm sold on the C2 BTX! I thought the Magna Traction was a marketing gimmick until I sliced across a icy section and it gripped better than my newly sharpened 88 degree bevel!!! I LOVE THESE BOARDS!

I'd expected them to have C3 on more of the boards. Or maybe XC2 on the Rice.

I agree the Rice sucks for 2014, graphics wise.

I have the Hot Knife.... Love it! only change in graphics is from green to orange. But still an awesome board. My nose is getting pretty beat up so I might be buying a new next year as well.
