I'm looking at getting this board or the Skate Banana in a 159cm, I only ride groomed trails and recently relocated from Colorado to Europe (more ice here I'm told); I'm 5'8, 185 lbs, size 9 boots - currently riding a older Burton T6 (best ride i've had so far) and a Nitro Dark Horse (a little stiff) - both in 162cm. Looking for some advice...

between these two i'd go with the trs because it is a little bit stiffer, however if you have a little extra cash the upcoming version of the trs or travis rice will be a better option, because they have c2 power banana which is a lot more stable for free riding, and the magnatraction makes it good for aggressive carving. If you don't do any park at all you should probably stay away from the skate banana as its more of a park oriented board. Its advertised as a board that can ride the whole mountain but a board with C2 BTX is much better for an all mountain/free ride board
