Lib tech: Kink vs TRS

I was wondering what the differences between these two boards are. I plan on getting one for the 09 season and riding all over the mountain. I would be getting a BTX in either case. Thanks for any help.

You are talking about the MC kink and not the Ride kink?

I rode the MCKink and would have to say its one of the stiffest boards I've ridden that was geared for all mountain use. It has an elongated contact point with a really snubbed out nose. The TRS is going to have a softer flex to it, lower end base, and a directional shape.

hmm thats interesting how does the longitudinal stiffness of Mc Kink lend to it being a good board for jibbing??

Libtech rates the MC kink a 5.5 on a scale of ten and the TRS a 5 as far as stiffness goes (comparable sizes) and they call it a radial twin?? whats that BA?? not directional twin... also I belive they both have the TNT base for 09

Some of their boards aren't bad but I find a lot of hype pushes them more than anything else.
