|DC5R||OP, go with the pickle. The BTX will help with the ice and, in terms of versatility, the pickle and park star would be rated the same.|

I had to make a choice earlier this season of a Pickle or a Riders Choice.
There are 2 main differences between the 2. The Pickle has an asymmetrical side cut. Basically the heelside is cut a little deeper to help with turns.
The Riders Choice is a C2BTX, the Pickle is a BTX. Riders Choice is a rocker/camber hybrid.
I got the Riders Choice because I like to rider super fast sometimes. The C2BTX is a lot more stable at high speed. It does well in the park as well as on pow days.
I have had several pow days on my R.C. and It does surprisingly well. It also bombs down icy conditions and doesn't loose the edge.
My wife bought a Girls Pickle and can't keep up with me cause of the chatter when going fast.
Hope that helps.

Im 5' 7" and ride the pickle in a size 153cm.
Love the way it handles everywhere. Magnetraction is wonderful. for me it turned icy heelside chatter into smooth turns. Wish it had a bit more snap
like a cambered board, but small price to pay for a board that does everything.

|rockmonkey95||how do u think the park pickle compares to the riders choice b/c everything is on sale right now and the original price of the park pickle is around the riders choice now.|

|The Last Laugh||I'm riding a park pickle right now and absolutely love it. I can bomb down black diamonds with ease go right into the park to some rails and boxes as well. I've bombed down a couple of groomed iced blue runs and the magne traction helped out tremendously but the board still felt a little loose but that's probably because of my bindings. I have yet to try it on a really great pow day though even though it's been dumping like crazy in Tahoe|

|Edp25||I am not sure. I like my 153 as the length gets me just a bit more speed. Three centimeters is just over an inch so problably not much difference. My other board is a Ride Havoc which is much more stiff and a 156. It just likes to go down the hill fast!|

|rockmonkey95||hey im around the same height and weight and i was also wondering what size to get. would 150 be too small?|

|Edp25||It may be the stiffer, I haven't ridden it. I should also mention that I am a small guy at 5'6" and 140 lbs on a 153 carbon credit. I do love the board. Good luck.|
