Default T.rice pro or Pickle, East Coast Ice

I'm looking to get up off my stiff 162 Cambered board onto something a little more freestyle friendly. My first thought was a Gnu pickle, but I'm a little worried about riding a basically all rocker board on the east coast ice. Would a C2 btx be better? Like the T.Rice pro?

I want a true twin
Sintered base
Not too too flexy, but flexy enough for a little bit of buttering
I want something that does well in all conditions
I'm thinking me being 6'0 and 200lbs, the 157 T.Rice pro might be the choice

Thoughts?

trice is pretty stiff, id look at the trs or gnu riders choice for a all around deck. Stiff enough to get shit done, soft enough to dick around.

rider choice has a sintered base, while the the trs is TNT which is a hybrid with fluoro impregnated in it. I have both bases and you cant tell the difference in speed, but they both have + and -. The sintered base requires more waxing and is harder to repair, but the material is harder and resists gouging. TNT doesnt need much wax if any, and takes a ptex candle repair, but its softer.

riders choice is aysm with a tighter side cut on the heel edge. I prefer the slightly longer traditional side cut on the trs

I don't know why, but I had not considered the GNU RC. It looks to be a board that meets all of my requirements. It's one I will strongly consider. Thanks!

It does, but it is like butter straight from fridge - hard and you really have to push

Just been starting to try simple presses, on the billy goat and today for the first time on the T. Rice 157 pro.

While a softer board would be much easier, especially for me being that I'm learning, when I got my posture correct both boards pop right up. Mind you I'm only trying when after a run approaching the lift line area. No real dedicated focus. So it is very doable, it's just a matter of honing your technique.

I always like learning on the harder option. And I always liked butter straight from the fridge.
