beehive guys, thanks again for your posts and help. my weapon of choice was a Lib Tech TRice pro 164.5 in the end. had a first test ride/day today with it - maaan, what a board ! I really fell in love with it after few rides. the best length for me would be 161.5 i guess, but as far as my riding is a bit aggresive and I like ride it fast, it feels really well. will hopefully post few pics soon ..

huckfin the slack is great in waste deep powder, everywhere else the t.rice will be the better board.

duh I definately vote for the Trice over the Ride. I have spent A LOT of days on the different Trices and they are some of my all time favorite rides. I'm pushing 200 pounds and ride the 57 regular for groomer/park days and the Horsepowers in the bigger sizes for pow days.
If you are set on the bigger board then I would suggest either the 61 in regular or the 64 in Horsepower. The Horsepower is only slightly softer and the added dampness makes for a better ride in the crud.

Thanks bro, I'd say the Lib is a winner here. But cannot decided whether to go with HP, or not ..

I rode a TRS 2010 model few days back, which was not really short for me, but I though, those 2 cm might do better for me.

I read here, that a HP seems to have more flex and is not that stiff as the regular one is (7/7 according lib tech). I think, stiffer board might be better for me. Any input on this ?

Are you getting the t.rice hp?
Many thanks for response wasatchman !

good point on the edition, I can't decide whether to get horsepower, or the classic pro model. Any idea ? what's the deal here .. I'm getting 164.5 cm

thanks for response
