Default Is this board way too small for me?

I'm 6'2, about 200 pounds.

Would a Lib Tech T Rice at 157cm be too small for me?

I wouldn't say too small, but I wouldn't go smaller than that. It all depends on your riding style too.

I ride a Proto CTX 160 at 6'1, 220, and feel it's just right for me (40% park, 50% groomers, 10% tree/powder)

I like playing in the park and hitting the smaller jumps, but the main reason I want to upgrade to the T Rice is because my banana gets a little noodly on me at higher speeds and its a 159 cm. So I def want to increase speed and stability.

might want the 161.5, or if you don't care about the t rice in particular go for the 161.5 gnu riders choice, it is almost exactly the same board just with blunted tips. i have ridden both and loved them but went with the RC cos i liked the blunt tips.

I'm 6'0, 195-ish, and ride the 157.5cm GNU Rider's Choice. I mostly do groomers/trees/side hits, and it feels like the right size for me. It's short enough to be maneuverable and quick, but long enough to be stable when bombing the groomers. Magnetraction has been a life saver on the East Coast this season. Love the board.

just a different shape thats all, the t rice 161.5 and 164.5 have pointy tips as opposed to the t rice 153 and 157 which have blunted tips. all of the gnu riders choice have the blunted tips.

And as miles said he is similar size if the 157.5 RC works for him you should be fine if thats the sort of riding you do
