I like it, once I got used to TBT, I had pretty much the same experience as you, easy landings, good to butter but holds an edge when I need it.

I'll have a look at getting the Jibboard this year, I haven't ridden it, but I can imagine that a soft TBT board would be fun.
I'm riding last year's Lobster jibboard.
TBT is a lot of fun and I like having a super-soft board for learning buttering, jumps, rails and boxes. The edges are super-forgiving and it feels faster than my previous boards.
The only drawback is the edge hold, which is why it does not bomb runs very well. You can still turn easily, but it lacks the carving feeling of other boards.
I certainly recommend this board as an addition to your quiver, but not as a "do-it-all" board.
