|gyuva||Hi guys! I'm going 157 all mountain and park, how to behave deep snow? Even I did not use it, set the bindings back a bit (0,75-1")? Or do not have to? I am 6.1 "and 185lbs .....|

I wonder how much heavier is the non horsepower version vs horsepower. Have someone weigh these two boards before?
Trice is a very aggressive board But can barely hold any wax vs my neversummer or uninc

|Dano||I'm torn between this board (161.5 HP) or the NS Heritage but am leaning towards the t.rice. My local mountain is known for it's low snow base icy boiler plate groomers or it's massive dumps depending on the time of season. I love a good stiff board but I'm kind of looking forward to trying magnetraction. The epic BC powder mountains are also a 6 hr drive and I think this stiff bitch is the do all deck I'm looking for. Cartels are looking good this year too since they backed off that forward lean and stiffened them up a bit. Still trying to decide but I know for a fact I've got a new set-up coming this year|

|Steez||look at the rome agent rocker, it has the hybrid camber and is great for all mountain freestyle so you can do all your runs as well as hit the park.. it's not a noddle but its not STIFF its probably a 5-6 out of 10 in stiffness|

With reverse (or hybrid in this case) camber boards the natural shape of the board will float on POW regardless of length. I ride an undersized board (151.cm for 70ish kg) and had no problem with it on the good days in Japan. The T-Rice is a super aggressive board and is going to be great for POW and hitting massive jumps, maybe not ideal for park / jibbing about.
Something like the GNU riders choice (which I ride) is still hybrid camber but is less aggressive and more flexy so it's more fun on groomers and better in the park, but still handles the POW fine. If you think you're going to start spending more time on epic back-country runs then grab the T-rice, otherwise something along the lines of the Riders Choice / Custom V / most Never Summer boards will be better suited to your style of riding.

|gyuva||Iím looking for the ideal size snowboard. Parameters are height: 184cm (6 ď) Weight: 83kg (183lbs), boot size 11.5 (Burton Ion). groomers 50% , pow 25%, 25% of using park . I've read many opinions, but I can't decide whether 157 or 161.5 would be better for me. I love the deep snow, but I am afraid there is little to 157, but a large jump in the park at 161.5 for me?|
