If u want a poppy, light , terrain park, all mountain ripper this is the board for u hands down. Great technology in the board and sick graphics. Best board of 2012 in my opinion
T Rice pro

T Rice with my Rome Targa bindings
Just got the 153 today the board is awesome and is poppy. Just saw the board is 20% off now so hopefully dog funk will give me the 100 back or a credit for a future purchase
This board blows my mind.
Today I went to Alyeska Resort, Alaska when they got 8 inches of fresh snow.
This is a fantastic board. The C2 banana is a little awkward at first but I got use to it. It has amazing float, light weight and, SUPER POPPY.
I had such a fat ollie a drop off, biggest our of any one that I've ridden.
This is a great choice for a complete shredder! it's flex rating of 7, I was like it's probably going to be a tad bit to stiff; however, I was way wrong. It flex's where every your body goes and is really good for chutes and tons of powder. Get this board, you will not regret it.
I just picked up the 157 and spent the last week and a half on it through the I-70 corridor in Colorado and it was sick! It rocked every set of conditions the mountains threw at me. It rips through groomers and hardpack, you can really lay down an edge and let it do it's thing. The magna traction worked great in some of the icier conditions that I ran into earlier in the week, it's got great pop coming off of rollers, cliffs, etc, and best of all it floated with ease through a foot or so of powder. Absolutely love it!

I'm 5'4 and 160lbs. I am looking for a board that is strictly for park. (mostly jumps, not many rails) I am currently riding a Rome SDS 150cm, I might want to upsize a little but im not sure. However, I do not want a directional board, that is how my rome is set up and it affects my riding, thanks
i would definately go with the t rice pro model. i ride the t rice pro model, 153cm and the board KILLS jumps. its REALLY stiff so you can hit 50-60 foot booters and stomp them clean no problem. i've had absolutely no problems on any rails, although i did get hung up once on an A frame rail this season. other than that, this board absolutely slays every aspect of the mountain.
Broke 2 this year..
So I bought a TRS 154 the beginning of the season, it was ok, I was used to my old trice 153. I cored it through the topsheet without even noticing till the end of the day, most the time you feel when you hit something sketchy, not this time. Since I bought from dogfunk I wasn't too pissed due to they're return policy. So I exchanged for this trice 153, and got it two days ago. today went to Vail, again, didn't do over anything I thought risked the boards ptex, skipped the rocky tree sections just went down groomwers. Well at the end of the day I'm cored to the topsheet again. Again I'm sending this one back, and going Never Summer Evo, lib has gone cheap on they're bases obviously,although buying from this site guarantees me a new board if anything happens I can't go though 6+ boards a season, this boards reliability just isn't for the everyday shredder. Great deck but horrible reliability. Look elsewhere if you want you're board to last. Not stoked!!

im 5'11" and 155 lbs what size should i get. I ride freestyle and downhill.
157.5 would be choice! The board is sort of wide, so please keep that in mind. Waist width is around 25.8cm, so 10+ shoe size is favorable (but not necessary).
I'm 5'5 and 143 lbs, i mostly ride the...
I'm 5'5 and 143 lbs, i mostly ride the mountain, and rarely enter the park, but mostly use the mountain to play around a little.. Is the 153 to big for my size? I'm currently riding a Burton Twin 149 which I do kinda find a little bit too short, but I don't know if it's because I'm just short in general and looking at other peoples board sizes makes mine feel too short.. Boards are kinda expensive in my part of the world, so it's not like I've tried so many different sizes/brands etc.
board size is all about feel and riding conditions. if you stay in the park you can downsize. if you ride powder and like speed you will want to size up. the hybrid style of this board gives the board a bigger feel without extra cms. hope this helps.
if at all possible rent or demo different boards to know what is out there.
I read some reviews that this board rides...
I read some reviews that this board rides larger than its size. Anyone know if there is any truth to this. Normally I ride a 151 and a step to a 153 is a jump in itself. I consider myself an all mtn rider. 5'5 and 130lbs.
the hybrid flex of the board gives it a rocker feel at the nose and tail. this normally allows riders to down size a couple cms.
just finished the season in oz on my 153 2012model and the base still looks like new im 6 foot 75 kgs it was super fast excellent pop really light will buy this board again with out a doubt...
New graphics are sick, plus a great board
I have last years Travis Rice Pro Model, it's a great board for all mountain. It performs in the park great, rails great, but where this board shines is in the back country. With the C2 Power Banana, plus the magne-traction, its the best board i have ever ridden. It has a good flex not super stiff not too soft, i think on lib's flex scale, its like a six or seven. The board, floats well in the powder, last seasons i have the 153, it did great in the park, and well in the back country, i'm 5'8" and 150lbs. and it floated fairly well. The new model i got a 157 for the back country, and i'm just waiting for the white stuff to fall, to get to use it. If you want a great all mountain board get it, defiantly worth the money.

i'm 6'1" 180lbs with a size 11,5 (Vans boot). I`m looking board for park and flat. Do you think T Rice 157 will be fine for me or i need some more wide? thanks
The waist width is 25.8 which is completely OK for a size 11.5 boot.
Ths! What is better for my wish TR or DK 158? What you think?
if you want a soley a park board look at the box scratcher. the t.rice is the best board ive ever ridden. it does work amazing in the park,but the camber and aggressive edges will catch on boxes and spin weirdly of certain jumps.
i'm 5'7" 165lbs with a size 7 boot i'm...
i'm 5'7" 165lbs with a size 7 boot i'm currently riding a Ride Society 154 and i was looking to add the T Rice 157 to my collection, do you think this board would be too wide for me or do you think it would rip just fine? thanks
The 157cm is 258mm at the waist and this is not a wide board. If you want a longer board great but, this is a hybrid board which delivers more with less length. If you're looking for a new board maybe stick with a 154. Below is a link to lib tech's tech page for this board.
I was use to riding a super soft 150 then switched up to the T Rice 157. Im just a little bigger than you are and i find the 157 to be slightly to big if u want to use it as an all mountain board where ur doing tree riding, park. For groomers and pow the 157 does fine, just seems a little big.
