Depends on which size T.Rice you're on the 53 is the jibby one and is shorter, the 57 I want to say is past mid stiff, and the 61.5 is fucking ungodly stiff. While the TRS is a hair past mid stiff.

hmmm the website also says for stiffness, with 10 being the stiffest
Skate Banana 156 = 6
TRS 154 = 5

this can't be right can it?

No its not right. Websites I've found well say one thing and the board will ride another way. Its like how a company rates boot flex, its a bunch of people standing around flexing the boot going ok feels like a 4, feels like a 6, feels like a 5, etc. etc. and they just take the median of it.

agree with BA. That does not sound right the SB is softer and TRS is much stiffer... go figure hmm I have ridden both to me the SB is a bit of a noodle....just my two cents worth.

BA how would you compare the 09 TRS BTX and the GNU Street? I'm really torn between the two.

Also, I'm looking at the T.Rice pro 157 for a powder board (I weigh 155 so should I go 153?). I'm not 100% sold on that either. We don't get much (read: any) powder around here to demo one. I won't really know how it feels until I get a trip out west.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

Street series is a jib stick like you're skate banana, while the TRS is an all mountain board. I think when you go west man pop into some shops and see if they'll let you demo a few "pow" boards on a good day to see what you like don't like.

Awesome that helps a lot. I was looking for a more all mtn board more than a jib stick. Thanks.
