that1guy If you are thinking of getting a riders choice, you should get this years model. It is a C2Btx. Or a banana camber hybrid. It rides better at high speeds and lands jumps better. I have one and I love it. It is semi soft but still firm enough for steeps and pow.

My 2 cents.

snowboarder1 if you want a riders choice go to and look up the riders choice it is on sale for 489.99, they dont have a warranty so i had price check it and they have a year warranty. so if you dont like it you can return it

snowboarder1 btw its not a noodle at all its not extremely stiff but not soft i would give it a maybe 6/10 flex? very sturdy at high speeds

snowboarder1 ok i just recently bought a gnu riders choice havent had any problems with it yet except that i chipped the top sheet a little but thats normal so anyways the pros for it are that it is a AMAZING all mountain board it is good on rails jumps, riding, jibbing, and anything else you want to do. the difference between it and the TRS is that it has a sintered base and is a little more park orientated. the sintered base is amazing fast and very tough. i would give it a 10/10 theres nothing i dont like about it. i rode my friends burton custom and the riders choice is milestones ahead of it

T.J. i dont need a wide board. i wear an 11 boot and have never used a wide board. the board i found for cheap just happens to be a wide and i figured it sure couldnt hurt for the deep stuff.

also, i need info on the Riders Choice not the carbon credit.

walove first off if you are looking at wide boards the skunk ape from lib heres on for a little of retail
is the wide version of the trs. As for the carbon credit, its a similar board with a "budget" construction, meaning they use a cheaper fiberglass and reinforce with carbon stringers. The trs is slightly stiffer but since you are going up in length i'd guess they would be pretty close in flex.

GNU Riders Choice BTX compared to Lib Tech TRS BTX

Currently rocking a Lib TRS BTX 159 and i LOVE it. it does everything i want it to do i just wish was a little bigger. If i could find this exact board in a 162-164 (without breaking the bank on this years brand new $600 model) i would be extremely happy but no dice.

so i found a GNU Riders Choice btx 162 (wide) and i wonder how its going to compare to the TRS in general but specifically stiffness. Its listed as a "medium stiff" board that can handle anything. transworld called it "the Swiss Army knife of snowboards". i'm looking at it for an all mountain, freeride, pow board for when i go out west and i need to make sure its not going to be a noodle.
