The shape of the base is actually more conduscive to riding pow. The thing is finding one that isn't so soft it just folds.

its solid, not too soft, not too stiff.

If you want an allmountain for pow also, try the BTX TRS

The T.Rice flex varies between the sizes.

i thought the trs leaned more toward the park side where the t.rice leaned more toward pow?

The 57 is going to be a bit past mid flex but has the blunted tips on it so pow can pile up on the nose.
