Yeah I was thinking, "why not a 158 Wide Riders Choice?"
Riders Choice is real similar to the TRS. Psyched you like it though and off of the Big B. Enjoy the ride man.

|Triple8Sol||Get the T.Rice 157.5|

|walove||i rode a 159 skatebanana, 160 lando, and a 157.5 RC back to back last year. The RC was not much stiffer than the banana, (larger bananas are stiffer). The lando was noticeably stiffer than the other two. The RC was the best all around out of the three. The Lando has a longer side cut, 8.65 like the rice, i really like this for higher speed riding. The shorter side cut of the RC and the TRS are fine for most terrain though, more fun while going slower.|

|redlude97||FWIW I ride a 157.5 GNU RCs at 180lbs and its the perfect size. Still good float in the pow, rides switch well, and I can still take laps through the park|

Still the TRS would be fine, it's as stiff as the RC. And the base, is he really gonna tell? Doubt it.

I had the skate banana 10-11 and GNU rc 10-11, have the gnu dk 11-12, gnu bg 11-12. (i included lib's siblings)
Unless the skatebanana you have is current yr it had a sintered based in prev. years. For the same amount of money you are paying might as well get the better base.

Nicely done! And I think you are correct. However, this is more my 'learn to do more and keep the speed from the custom. I think next year I will get a second board, smaller and softer such as a flyin-v or Sherlock. Basically because I will have spare 2013 malavitas. Was a stupid purchase basically as I had planned to upgrade to the antler this year but really put off by all the edge hold problems. Can't sell as I live in the Czech Republic and barely speak the language!
If you think that the 157.5 will give me the piste ability that an older custom offers then maybe. Interesting to note you think the 157 will perform better in powder? I though the 161.5 was actually for more of a powder loving rider?
Useful replies, thank you.

Have you been reading the internet too much? TRS is too soft? you can't ride switch and play around on a T.Rice? What Libs do you have?
The base is fine and fast. It works for all their pros. I have it on my Skatebanana and it's plenty fast. Unless you are a racer you probably won't notice a difference. You can play around and ride switch on the Rice, it's just a little stiffer.

I would take the trs out b/c :
1) it has the softest flex out of the 3 at 6 flex (compare to 7 on the trice and rc 161.5)
2) and tnt base(variation of extruded base).
If you want one ride switch and play around then take out Trice and the 161.5 length on both the Trice and GNU RC.
Both have the same flex rating of 7. ( rc 161.5 at 7 and Trice 157.5 and 161.5 at 7)
That leaves the Gnu RC at 157.5. Soft enough to play and big enough to float (blunt tip more surface) and better base.
