Haven't riden them, but i did hear it was slightly stiffer this year...but probably nothing noticable. If you're wanting stiffer btx, look at the park pickle

Nope, not sure why but the Banana has always been sintered but for some reason the TRS has always been extruded... go figure.

MTX = magnatraction edges (ie wavy edge thing)
BTX = same as MTX but on a banana board ie magnatraction on a reverse camber board

from my understanding regarding the bases
Sintered - faster, requires more regular waxing to maintain performance
Extruded - slower, more robust
