Default Something more butter friendly than a TRS

Last two seasons i rode a nitro fuser, 159 wide. This year i picked up a lib tech TRS c2btx, and i generally love the board. I'd call myself an advanced beginner, as i'm still learning stuff. I can carve well in both normal and switch, but i'm still having trouble getting a pop in 180s, and sometimes my ollies are unstable.

Been trying to press the TRS but to no avail, so i'm thinking of picking up something softer to have around for next season.

Lib's skate banana doesn't seem to be much softer on paper than my TRS, but the MC kink thing might be. Any thoughts? Doesn't have to be lib, but im starting to like the BTX thing.

the skate banana is a good deal softer than the trs, very buttery! A couple of other fun-softer choices, NS Evo, Burton Hero. I'm sure you'll get a ton of good suggestions...those are just the 1st two that pop into my head.

I have a horrorscope and it is super soft! You don't even need to try if you want to butter!
And for the size with your weight and boot size, go with either the 155w or 157. Great board! will not regret it I love mine!

at 220 lbs don't get a "butter board" you will fold that thing in half and break it after a week of riding.

Go for a mid flexing park board, and that will feel more like a noodle to you if you want it.

I'd go with a nitro T1 or nitro rook, capita mid life, k2 parkstar or darkstar, arbor westmark.

boards that are similar to those will do you just fine, and won't be useless outside the park

Yeah he is right! Don't listened to what I said earlier for some reason I thought I saw your weight was around 180 must have gotten mixed up with another thread. Go with what twin89^ said plus there isn't really a good size horroscope to fit your weight, height, and boot size anyway. But good luck in finding your board!
