Magnetraction can feel really weird to some people. I personally love it. It takes about a day to get adjusted to it but it really does give you a superior edgehold. I can't 100% guarantee you will like it as some people cannot stand the feel of it, but I personally think its great and simply takes a little time to get used to.
Also to clarify, the TRS was noewhere near being stiff for most, it was just a little stiff for my personal taste. It is an All-Mountain/Freestyle board so it should suit your needs for just about everything.
