What is the difference between the HP and...

Posted on

What is the difference between the HP and the other c2btx pro ? I will be getting one of these in the next couple days and so far all I can see is the HP is more eco-friendly and had basalt core while the others have just fiberglass? (and the designs are slightly different.) For $130 more I just want to be sure I am making the right choice. (My question is based on Google search for 'Travis Rice Pro C2BTX') Thanks!

The main difference is the weight. The HP is way lighter. The 157 HP I have is about the same weight as the 153 T.Rice without HP. It also might have a bit more flex and pop too. I also have a T.Rice BTX from a few years ago and I can tell you from experience they are similar rides. Personally, I think you should get the c2btx pro and use the extra money on some good bindings. Look into Ride's Capo or Union's Atlas. Or even Burton's Cartel. All would go great with the T.Rice.
