What's your ratio of freestyle riding? Some of the boards are better suited more for bigger kickers as opposed to jibbing etc etc.

I haven't ridden the other 2, but I have been riding an Uninc 160 with the EST bindings since last December and I can tell you that it is the best board I've ridden. I used to always switch between 2 or 3 boards depending on the conditions but now I just ride the Uninc.

I have heard great things about the K2 and Lib though. Best bet is to demo (if you can wait that long).

well id say maybe 65% jumps and 35% rails and grinds.
i guess i want a pretty sturdy board with some flexibily?

Best board for what you're looking to do is the Jibpan. That board has picked pop, great edge to edge, and while it says Jib in the name is more suited to jumps. The TRS is more for a freestyle ripper thats going to hit natural features like cliffs. Also for your weight I'd drop down to the 154 Jibpan.
