FS 153cm WTB 157cm Lib Tech 2013 T.Rice Pro C2BTX

Hi,

I got the 153, new. Mounted and tried once to verify that it is indeed too short for me. It was. A no-brainer as I'm 175lbs. Ideally I'd trade with the same board in 157.

Location: NYC

(I guess FT as in For Trade would've worked instead of FS+WTB. Sorry)

I have a brand new 2014 T Rice 157 cm HP that I would sell for much less than retail if you're interested.

vinzo, thanks, but I think riders choice would be too park-oriented for me.
kdirt, I'm interested, although even "much less" than the $700 it retails for would probably break my bank

its actually very similiar to the T rice. look up reviews on it.

I really love the board, but its a little too big for me if i can squeeze into a 155 or 153 id love it.

Vinzo, it does look to be pretty similar, except a little softer and the (optional) pickle tech asymmetrical sidecut. Did you get the pickle or regular?

Gotta ask.
If it was a no-brainer, why did you buy it in 153?

Well, maybe no-brainer is an overstatement. I did have an argument of the effective edge being the same as my old 155 Burton's, which doesn't have the blunt ends. Lib Tech doesn't post an upper weight limit and I made a rash decision. It was a great deal well before the season started and I did some more research while waiting for the snow and the doubts started creeping in. So by the time I actually got to try the board, I was already semi-sure it would "feel" short, which it did.
