I'd say it is just as responsive for quick turns, etc. It has more flex between the bindings than my NS. Great on powder-- I can lift the front of my board with my foot, where on the Infinity I have to lean way back.
I was going to get the Lotus a few years ago and just couldn't find one in local demos. Also I wanted to try magna trax, which I never notice until other people are complaining about icy conditions. I did demo the Lotus last year and found it stiffer-- just not the same torsional flex. Not as lively. The Roxy boards I have are rated about the same stiffness. You might be pleasantly surprised by the TRS.
Here is a link
to a review I found online.
(I ride a Roxy Envi for a few years and recently bought a sale Eminence because they don't make the Envi anymore.)
Thank you so much for this - super helpful to hear from someone who has been on the Infinity and a similar board to the TRS.
I'm going to stop stressing
If the TRS isn't what I hoped and dreamed for, life will go on.
