JHeagz I have a Trice HP and love the board, but it is getting a little beat up after 4 yrs. I just ordered a Ripsaw myself, thinking that they'd be similar boards, but maybe the ripsaw would be even more aggressive. Anyone have any thoughts on how the two boards compare?

When you say you want the board to be more playful, do you just mean softer flex? You said you don't really go into the park. It seems like the photo may be a nice fit for you, but it also doesn't seem like it if very different from the Rice, so it would be more of a replacement. Do you ever get to ride powder?

How about Jone mountain twin, Lib TRS or Burton Custom? All a little softer and more playful boards that get a lot of love.

If you would like a deck that is "forgiving" to ride, not "squirrel y" per a true rocker, but still can hold an edge and give you a solid, confident ride, you should seriously consider a deck with a RCR profile. Get a twin or near twin version and you will find your "happy" place and it will become your go to deck 9 days out of ten.

For burton that could be a custom in Flying V, or process, or Antler, or a little more on the powder side of things could be Sherlock.

I'm going to throw the Burton Antler into the mix if you can pick one up in the sales. It is a lot of fun, loads of pop, I ride a little shorter but has plenty of flex anyway, its good lazy playful fun.

wind gypsy Jeff - I'm 5'10" 185 and bought a 157 T Rice mid season. I'd classify myself early intermediate rider and I spent one day on the hill with a T Rice and it beat my ass! I found it unforgiving and you had to be on your game at all times. I like to relax and ride lazy from time to time so it wasn't for me.

I picked up a 2013 Arbor Coda 159 on the cheap and have been in love with it. Extremely forgiving yet I feel in complete control still at 40 MPH+. It feels less squirrely between the feet than the t rice did even though its full rocker (might just feel that way because I know if it twitches a little i'm not going to catch an edge).

I have no reason to be but I'm still a bit intrigued by the Rossi one and jibsaw and yes asym. Think the camrock profile would be nice on hard icy days.

jeff Thanks for the suggestions, I will definitely look into these boards... Isn't the RipSaw a CamRock?

I know you said softer flex wise but maybe change shape try something that is a little directional like a captia Black Snowboard of Death
