TRS flex rating is 5/10 on Lib's scale definitely felt more of a freestyle influence than either the Agent or Omni and I would be worried about that board folding under pressure because I folded it, just not firm enough to really ride super fast/aggressive IMO.

I don't see a flex rating on Signal's site but to me it felt much firmer than that TRS. I said ~6.5, but probably be more like a 7+ for someone who is lighter since I am bigger than average.

the waist spec on the TRS 148n is 237 compared to 240 for the Omni 150 so there's a difference there.

Thanks for the valuable feedback, especially since you've ridden two of these decks.

I'm only 125-130 pounds so no matter how hard I ride it, I doubt it'll fold under pressure.

Interesting comments on the Signal vs. TRS... from reading their descriptions I would've figured the TRS would be stiffer.

Do you think the 3mm difference on the waist will feel noticeable with my size 7 boot? My custom X152 has a 244mm width and sometimes I feel that contributes to my struggles with tight turns given my boot size.

Thanks!

It wont make a ton of difference from the TRS to the Omni, but going form full camber to either hybrid will. Rocker makes it easier to get on edge, so even in the SAME waist width but then with rocker you'll notice a good improvement.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
