BSOD is a progressive side cut, so it feels like a directional deck, where the TFA feels like a true twin.
Hope that helps.
Agreed with this. I have the BSOD (2012) and absolutely love it. I wouldn't worry about the dampening as it handles speed and chop very well. Stability was a concern of mine when I got it. I was coming from a DH2.5. When I got the BSOD I was absolutely thrilled with it. It wasn't as stiff as my DH2.5 but stiff enough to be stable yet super light and playful.

The TFA is stiffer (marginally). And the BSOD has no issues riding switch.
