the lynn phnx is a little softer, relaxed sidecut, has basalt stringers. has a .5" setback. also the magnetraction is mellow-er.

t-rice pro, is about 1 cm wider, stiffer, has a sintered base, more aggressive sidecut, true twin,

lando phnx-same as lyn but wider and 1"setback, and bamboo under feet for stiffer response. and only 2 sizes

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

So... the only thing different about the two is everything. Well wait - both made by Mervin and both a great f***ing time.

Would one feel more stable underfoot than the other on hardpack.

not sure what that means exactly.

both boards are stable at speed and will grip hardpack well with the magnetraction.

really it comes down to weather you want a true twin w/sintered base or a directional twin w/o
