Ya, I was suspicious about the flex ratings, I know the Lynn is pretty damn stiff, but I've never touched a TRS so I just went by what the Lib Tech site said. After looking over the entire Lib Tech spec sheet their flex system really doesn't make much sense, I think their most flexible board is a 4.5/10 and their stiffest is 7/10. I think with a scale that small it's pretty tough to get an accurate idea of how stiff one board is compared to the next, and it seems like most manufacturers have similar scales that are probably just as misleading. Back in my day we didn't have flex ratings
