The TRS and Legacy are very similar. I have heard different things about MTX vs. Vario Grip (NS's edge hold tech). I have never bean on a newer NS so I can't compare to MTX. I people say that MTX has better edge hold, have heard some say vario is just as good, and some people don't like how much edge hold MTX actually gives.

In general, I believe MTX probably holds better on ice than vario grip, but it is all a matter of preference for which is better. You really can't go wrong with either board.
