I'd keep that Mod Rocker before riding any of those.

Why only Lib?

I just heard they made quality boards. Magnitraction and camber rocker camber. If you have better boards in mind let me know but theyd need to be in the lower 300 price range

I am a little curious what other boards you had last season that didn't make the cut?

They were old. A burton troop 151, a forum destroyer 2005 152, i rode my friends ride and it was decent but my favorite by far has been my mod rocker. I just have the money now to spend it on a board thats even better if there is one

If you like Lib check out GNU to, they are the same company pretty much. What are you going to ride most? There is no snowboard that is amazing at everything, most all around boards are kind of mediocre at every thing. Based of those three boards if your going to ride park more, the skate banana, all mountain i would go with the TRS, or for back country the T-rice. not saying one of these cant be used for all just don't expect it to be amazing everywhere. My two cents if your going to ride park more don't go with a skate banana they are way over priced for a jib board. I personally am not a fan of libs crazy hybrid cambers. groomers/all mountain = camber/flat, park = flat/reverse, pow = reverse. Lib tech is reputable and a great brand, but i would look into other options. There are plenty of other reputable brand that make good product for cheaper. Capita, Nitro, Salomon to name a few.

Thanks for your input. I just wanted a board that will go really fast and provide stable landings. (Still perfecting a 360) and can still be decent in park

Sintered bases are faster but the require wax more often, extruded bases are a little slower but the don't take as much maintenance as sintered.

So would you buy the trice 2013 or keep my mod rocker 2012? Money isnt an issue for my situation. I want a board that rides decent everywhere.

About the same flex and the Mod is just better.

What don't you like about the Mod that you're looking for something new?
