They are both pretty much the same board with different bases. Supposedly the TRS has better construction that is why its priced higher, but I am not sure if I really believe that.

I have ridden the TRS and love it, but I am sure I would have probably felt the same about the RC too. I would just go with the one that you like the looks more.

good point. seeing as how the RC has a pickle tech as well and is still cheaper, im just trying to find the all around board. read that the RC is good for all including rails. the trs isnt. what do you think of rails on the trs

The trs isn't stiff but it isn't soft either. It can handle rails fine, just look at the black shredder video All Black Shredder Snowboard Review: Lib - ESPN Video - ESPN, but it won't be as easy as a more park oriented board(banana,pickle). I am not sure if there would be much of a difference between it and the RC on rails. If the RC is softer it is just a tad softer, there isn't that much difference in the flex.

It is possible the PTX could make a difference with stability on rails, I have never ridden a board with PTX though.
