2012 TRS or Proto?

I've just sold my 2011 Riders Choice for an incredible price i couldn't let pass, although i really liked the board.
Now, i have to get a new board.
The "all mountain freestyle" is a perfect definition for my kind of riding, considering the freestyle part of it being anywhere On the mountain but the park.
I'm 6'0 and 240. My Gnu was 161.5. I'm used to shorter boards.....

So, any advices between the Proto and the TRS?

Best Regards,
Igor

if you weigh 240 then absolutely get which ever one is stiffer. i have not rode the TRS but i think it is probably the stiffer of the two.

i think you should maybe look Heritage or something else a little stiffer.

Agree with that - my understanding is that the flex varies more for the TRS than the Proto, i.e., it gets stiffer as it gets bigger (like certain other things in life...). A 162 TRS is plenty stiff for sure.
