Maybe I can help a little bit since I've got experience on two Lib-Tech boards that are very different when it comes to camber and profiles and I love both boards but for different reasons. Living and riding on the east coast normally I can give you some insight into how both boards react.
Lib-Tech Skate Banana 159 BTX; this is my normal park board and I've been riding this one the longest. The camber profile on this particular board is rocker. It turns more from the middle of the board and underneath your feet. It profile allows it to be Catch Free and feels loose and playful on a variety of snow. The Magne-Traction edges make up for the rocker profile loose edge feel on other boards. The greatest benefit that these edges give you is you can ride them de-tuned and no need to sharpen them as much even in icy conditions. The rocker camber has a lot of benefits being loose and forgiving but also has a few weaknesses too. At high speed the loose feel can make it feel like it squirms. But the edges keep it in line. The Ollie power suffers due to the reversed camber and it can make for slightly looped out landings if you don't stomp it. But for the most part this is one of my favorite boards I've owned.
Lib-Tech TRS 162 C2 Power Banana, this board is a hybrid camber and much stiffer than SB. It powers down steeps and eats up chop and powder like a rabid animal. For hitting jumps the stiffer board with the hybrid profile makes this board a lot more snappy and sure footed when it stomps jumps. The Magne-Traction edges make short work of ice and packed powder and makes turning almost too easy. This board likes to go fast and go bigger, I've never Ollied higher and been able to stomp everything easier. Charges big lines and never feels like its out of it element in any type of condition. But that said the TRS has its weaknesses, slight but they are there. The hybrid camber or C2 loses that catch free feel the BTX has. The board is stiffer and has a less playful feel, not to mention it suffers at slower speeds. It wants to charge, so when you try to ride at slower more subdued speeds it feels catchy. The hybrid camber feels more like its a combo of turning from your tips and tails along with under your feet and a suspect that's why at slower speed it suffers. For all mountain riding this board never ceases to amaze me, but you have to be willing to ride at speed to enjoy it.
I like both boards but if I had to choose just one I'd use The BTX Skate Banana. The catch free edges, floaty feel, playful profile, and almost too easy riding, makes it an easy choice. I've ridden this board in park and pow and it never felt out if its element. At high speed it suffers and I've got to load up the tail for an Ollie more aggressively and stomp out my landings aggressively to keep from washing out, but still I find the BTX the better of the two. I'd rather not catch an edge over the aggressive speeds and hair pin turning the TRS gives me. These are only my opinions and if anyone else feels differently then that's yours. I'm a fan of Lib-Tech and I'm not bashing either board.
