hardasacatshead Ok so I just had a more detailed look at the specs. I was probably a bit hasty in saying it wouldn't be a great powder board - it probably would. But there are still better I think. As far as I can see it's got everything covered except I'd like to see it have a little more taper.

For a dedicated powder board these are my current picks (and there are so many more out there):

Rossignol XV
Arbor A-Frame or Shreddy Krueger (2015)
Salomon Sickstick
Burton Landlord

If you're set on a Mervin board then I guess the Lib Tech Birdman is the best pow specific board in their lineup. From memory I think ETM might have one and loved it.

Don't restrict yourself to one brand though, there's a lot of fish in the sea.

This thread might help:

spacemanspiff ok so where does the Beast fit in compared to the T rice.
From what I can gather, its a directional, setback C3 Btx (aka more camber than T rice Pro C 2 BTX)

It would probably do better in pow and be pretty good for all mtn.. but not sure how the T rice fits in otherwise.

What else should I go look at for pow/all mtn?

hardasacatshead The Trice isn't horrible in the pow by any means. It's a little larger than your normal deck. In saying that, if you want a GREAT powder board then the Beast probably wouldn't be it, it'd be good but there are better ones out there for sure.

Anyone ridden this board?

I am looking for some thoughts... I just got a 161.5 T rice Pro for all mountain fun but was looking for a powpow board perhaps also.

Unless the T Rice does well in powder then I will just use it all the time.
