Thumbs up

I just ordered a 161.5 T Rice Pro. I was wondering if I ordered the right size...
I am ~180-185 pounds... 6'1"... 11-11.5 boots.

I have ridden 159s my entire snowboarding life (GNU Carbon Credit 159 Wide , Never Summer Heritage 159W)... I normally get a wide board because I assume I need it for my bigger than normal feel... thoughts?

did I order the right size... I figured the 157 would be too small.

Cheers!

I think you're perfectly fine. The 157 would probably give you a little more manoeuvrability but the 161.5 will give you more stability when bombing and a little more float in the pow.

I know they're very different boards but I'm about the same size as you (10.5 boots though) and I ride a 157 Proto HD most of the time and it's on the verge of being too small for me (I think you'd be in the same boat with the 157 TRice). Heaps of fun all over the hill but I'd enjoy a little more board for deeper snow. On the groomers it's fine because it's got almost the same effective edge as your 161.5 Lib so holds an edge well enough for me.

So yep, you've made a good choice. Enjoy shredding the fuck outta that thing.

Totally agree with hardasacatshead.

I'm 175-180 lbs., 5'11", but size 8.5/9 boot.
I owned both the 161.5 and 157.
157 is more maneuverable for my weight while 161.5 was more stable, a little better for charging.

Ultimately I got rid of both because of my smaller boot size, but I really liked the boards!
