Great all mountain stick
Got this last season, just thought i would review it. It's a great board for all mountain, does great in park, pow, or just anything you throw at it. It does great in the pow floats perfect, i have the 153 and it floats great, im 5'8" 150lbs. and it does a great job. Get this board if you want an all mountain board, defiantly worth the money.
This board is only for hot dogs who likes to go fast and big. This board charges, will take you though anything. If you don't take control this board will ride you. Built for bigger dudes. the double camber is a little tough to get used to and the mag is too much at times. But awesome edge to edge and super responsive. Hand crafted near Canada.

how is this board in the park?? grinding wise??
this board should be fine for rails but if all ur focusing on is rails there are better boards out there. lib tech makes the skate banana can kill on rails
Awesome... Read this
Listen I do not write many reviews, but I had to write one for this. I looked through tons of bad reviews trying to get an idea of what this board was like like. Well I took it out today for this first time. I rode a forum destroyer for the last few years and every other board you can imagine through out the years. I did not know muuch about this double concave technology compared to the reg standard camber of the last. So lets start, the bananna technology act makes buttering easy, super fun to ride. I took it right into the park no problem at all on every rail I hit board slide, nose press, 50/50. Jumps solid pop, 360- over rotated first one I threw I spun so fast. Bombed a double black at the end of the day and the thing stuck like glue. i did not even have to stay on a toe edge. My destoryer would get swirly at higher speeds. This is an awesome board. Hope you like as much as I do.

I would like to buy this board as a christmas...
I would like to buy this board as a christmas gift for my boyfriend. I don't know much about snowboards since I just started to ride 2 years ago. My boyfriend as been doing this sport for about 15 years now. I don't want to desapoint him by buying something he wouldn't like.
He's 6'2'' and around 180 pounds
All around rider (not so much park)
We are snowboarding in east Canada, but we are planing a trip in the west soon (more powder and bigger mountains with all kind of conditions)
He rides a Sims (old model don't know the name) 157 for now but he told me that he would like to try a longer board. (maybe around 160cm)
I would like him to love his new board and have it for a long time.
He wears 10 or 10,5 in his boots (his board now is not wide, but would I have to consider maybe getting a wide board?)
Would I be doing the right thing by buying this board? If not, would you have an other model to suggest? If yes, what size should I get for him?
161.5.. The board rides shorter than it is.. It's a midwide so it will easily fit his boot.
if he wants bugger snowboard... bought him 1.61...!!!!

I am looking between this board and the Ride Machete Wide. I am 6'2, 200lbs with a size 11.5/12 boot. Is this going to be wide enough for me?
I don't hit huge jumps, but I ride extremely fast, carve hard, and do like to hit park jumps and any jib i can find on the mountain. I have been riding 14 years.
Do you think this board is worth the $$ and a good fit for me? I have heard good stuff about the Ride - Machete (wide) as well.
LAST QUESTION - Blunt tip or Point tip?
Jake, you sound knowledgeable on sizing. I'm 6' flat but 210 lbs with 11.5 boots. Do you think the 61.5 is too short for me or should I opts for the longer board?
5 stars fo sho
Thia board is the all-mountain board. Olling is super easy barley got to put any effort into it. This board shreds pow like no other. No wonder Rice rides this puppy. Dopest board i ve ever rode.
I'm looking for a board for freestyle and...
I'm looking for a board for freestyle and riding in powder between trees. What board size will fit better for me? I'm 5'8" 160 lbs with a size 10.5 boot. Currently I have Bataleon Goliah 157 and feel I need a little bit shorter, but wouldn't T. Rice Pro 153 be too short?
What other board (and size) would you recommend?
i think that for a powder/ freestyle a 153 would be too small im your size and i ride a 153 in the park so if i were you id go with a 155/154 it should be the right size for you... hoped that helped
I agree with ben in terms of sizing for your board, but however I believe you should go with a 153. These boards are hand crafted, making the size not exact. I went to my local shop and put a 153 of this exact board up to me and it fit perfectly. If i had to guess it was probably more towards a 156 then a 153, and I am 170 5'11'' and have this board in 153. I do the same riding style as you and think you will be happy with a board of this size due to your statistics. You will not be let down with this all mnt machine.
So would you think that the T rice board runs bigger ? I am about 5'9 and weigh prolly 160lbs n i wanna know whether this board is gonna be to big or not. I got the older T rice model in a 151 n it fits me perfectly.
Wow! (Pre-ride Review)
Just got this bad boy in the other day. I took it out of the bag and all I could think of was WOW! Beautifully crafted and off the hook graphics! The graphics are pretty much hate it or love it. I'm proud to say that this board was made in my home state. I think the flex on this stick is perfect. I was afraid it would be too stiff but I played around on it and it felt just right. I can't give this stick 5 stars yet because I haven't rode it, but until then I give it 4 out of 5 for overall quality, craftsmanship, and design. My props to Lib Tech and Mervin Mfg. for another quality product.

pickle which would you think is better for all mtn shred
Those are two totally different rides and each have their own unique qualities.
*Stiffer-More aggressive flex
*Big Mountain Freestyle
*available in wide or regular
*Medium, highly versitile flex
*Deeper heelside for balanced heel-to-toe action.
Depends on your riding style, pocketbook and graphic preferences, either way you're off to a great start picking between these two boards!

pickle which would you think is better for all mtn shred
I got the park pickle last year and just traded it in for this board. The pickle is great, real fun board for everything. But it was a little too soft for hauling at high speeds, and the full reverse camber was fun, but the bottom of my board got DESTROYED. I ride east coast ice, so the magna traction was nice, but the bottom of my board has more p-tex on it that any of my old boards combined. And I only had it for ONE SEASON! So my hope is that T Rice will prevent some of that chatter at high speed as well as the complete destruction of the base due to the C2 power banana shape. I'll get back to you specifically on which one rides better, but I would recommend the T Rice based on my riding with the pickle.
The GO BIG Board.
This board is SICK!!! This board off of the big jumps and cliffs is super stable, the stability is flawless. If you're worried about lack of pop, don't. I can almost ollie as high on this as my cambered boards. One of my favorite things about this board though was speed. I never had to worry about getting enough speed for the park. Now I'm talking about last years version but there's really not much of a difference from this years, unless you want the HP. If you want one of the best kill everything boards around, this is it!
Which would be better for a park like Bear...
Which would be better for a park like Bear Mountain in CA? I hit park jumps and going to step up to bigger wedges and jumps this season. I need some pop right? I've been looking at the Rome Mod 154 or this board.
T Rice for sure. Just Look at what Travis Rice does on it. Its amazing on jumps, tons of pop and stable on the landings
im trying to decide between this and last...
im trying to decide between this and last years dc pbj. and i wanna know how this does in the park. i do alot of park jumps and rails so i want it do good there but also be able to take it out in the pow.
Its more of advanced big air board, maby not be the best for rails but i think it would handle ok.
I am trying to decide between a T, Rice...
I am trying to decide between a T, Rice C2BTX and a TRS C2BTX. I am 5'7" 160 lbs with a size 7 boot.
I would say to go for the TRS. The T Rice is a mid-wide and might feel a little sluggish turning with a size 7. The TRS will be faster edge to edge.
The T.Rice has a slightly smaller side cut radius which may make it a bit more 'carvey', its a little wider which will help it float a little better on pwder days...are you done growing? If you are you might as well toss a coin? I bougth a TRS and then changed my mind and decided to go with the T.Rice - I wear an 8 Boot, I prefer my boards a little stiffer - which the T.Rice is according to Lib-Tech's website, And the smaller side cut radius might make it carve a little better. If you are worried about sluggish turning, and want the T.Rice, consider a slightly more responsive binding/boot combination....I ride Driver X's with Aluminium bindings - Ride, Drake, and Bent Metal's - each on a a different board - for the T.Rice I am debating between a set of Ride Contraband Nitrane's or Burton C02's. At the end of the day buy which one your feeling - they will both rip and you will likely like both boards.
