Sounds like you want something with quadaxial fibreglass instead of triaxial
Can you elaborate? I'm not familiar with how that relates to a snowboard.
Let me know what you think of the t.rice hp, ive been looking to pick one up myself.
Good call on the HP. I feel like I contributed to someone's well being. Even if it wasn't my suggestion that made any difference.
TRice's are great for freestyle man, that I can vouch for. Nice and poppy too. For what you indicated you want in a board, I think you are going to love it.
If you are going to pick up another board for messing around on, don't bother getting another TRice Pro. The difference between the too, even given length, won't be enough to justify a purchase.
If you must, get something more noodley for contrast.
That was the original plan. Two twins, one noodle, one that would support free ride. But I've read so much about the Rice being a do it all true twin I don't know if I'll need another board.
I'm fine taking the short noodle up on day 3 or 4 when I'll be hanging with the wife or just taking it easy by myslef, or on shitty snow days where I have no desire to haul ass.
It's the days that I ride most often that I want nothing to do with the noodle board but want to be able to, at my desire, do the butters, spins, jumps, etc while hitting the entire mountain from steep to trees and all natural features. If I can this on the T. Rice I'd have no need for a noodle board, except maybe for the purpose of learning.
I'm torn between the 157 and 161.5. I'm at the high end of my weight right now, 210lbs, but will be starting a descent to the 195 mark shortly. This is without any gear.
I'm only 5'8" with a 30" inseam. I'm worried about the 161.5 being too long for the freestyle I want to learn and I'm worried the 157 would be too short for the powder/bomber days.
What do you all recommend?
I could order the 157 HP and send back whatever one I like least. The 157 has the same contact length, per spec, that my Billy Goat has. My Billy Goat is a 162.
