Default A new Li Tech board

Hi,

I am going to upgrade to a board that fits my riding a bit better. I have had a long break from snowboarding and I'm really looking forward for this winter and travelling. I ride mostly freeride and I enjoy the thrills of backcountry more and more all the time. I would also like my board to be able to handle steeps and Pow well. I hardly do any riding in the park or Pipe anymore just the occasional jumps in the off pists. I try to travel to central Europe each year to get some decent rides as the slopes here in Finland are fairly short and mostly icy.

My weight is 68 kg / 150 lbs and my boot size is 9. I've been riding for 10 years but with a 3 year break due to an accident mostly.

I have been checking out the Lib Tech Phoenix Jamie Lynn BTX -09 board and also the TRS. From what I read from their site I am currently leaning for the Phoenix. Does anybody have any experience with this board yet? I spoke with a importer of Lib tech and they suggested either the 160 Jamie Lynn for me or the 159 TRS. Does these lengths sound about right, or should I go for a bit shorter?
Is there a big difference between these two boards?

Grateful for all comments

I would be very grateful for any comments on either board or what your thoughts about the difference between these two are. You can also suggest another board that would fit my riding style, if you know of a better option.

The food court gangsta and the enemy are just 2 choices that shouldn't be on that list at all.
