TRS Question?

Does the TRS have an extruded base? I thought the TNT base was extruded. This year though, it says double sintered on some sites. So, does anyone know for sure?

Would you recommend the TRS or Rice for more aggressive freestyle riding. Nothing but jumps, speed, and maneuvering in trees. I did like that the TRS was more narrow. Faster edge to edge?

In the past the TRS had an extruded base, but it looks like they are putting a sintered base on it this year.

That's what it looked like to me as well. Which board is better for what I described?

I have both and it really depends on what you want.
T.Rice is by far the faster of the two boards. It is very stable but it'd be pretty hard to do freestyle tricks as it is stiff.

The TRS does everything well and it feels just so smooth doing everything. You can still press it a bit and a bit more park oriented. I feel like it is faster edge to edge simply because it is narrower. I didn't realize this year's was sintered now, I rode it in spring slush so it didn't feel faster at the time.
