ive been on the turbo and a riders choice (close to a trs). I find the center reverse rocker in the c2btx make the board much easier to initiate turns, and playful when flat based. While the flat camber in the center of the turbo gives the board a dead feeling when flat based. on the other hand these same characteristics make other say that the trs is twitchy while the turbo is stable and planted. both rail good turns once layed over. I like the constant radius side cut with magnatraction a lot more than the "hyperprogressive" side cut that the k2 comes with. all in all i think the trs is a more fun ride, while the turbo is damp and stable.

TRS is maybe the one board I don't just hate from the whole of Mervin. Still retarted they don't full wrap, but hey.

Turbo is a stable pillow, Lib is probably a smidge more nimble but will get squirly in the back seat. Also in the trees you're more likely to damage a tucked edge than a full wrapped one.
