Flat rocker is more stable on jumps than C2.

That's a neat opinion. Mine is different. See how that works? Now get over yourself.

Debate is good, that's how people come up with the best answers

So now i think i'm leaning more towards the TRS. Think that would be better for Bear riding?

flat is more stable for sure, i prefer it in the park, on jumps. I also find it slow to respond and kind of blah to ride. I like c2 or even btx for riding any other terrain, quick and easy to turn, better float in pow and chunky snow. I dont love or hate magne but i dont like k2's hyper progressive.

Nope, you're wrong. I'm right. Sorry, internet rules. There are no opinions, only facts, of which yours are wrong. It's a blessing and a curse always having the correct opinions, it's a daily struggle I have learned to deal with.

Wow, way to help people. Take an idiotic stand and then criticize anyone who dares to give a different opinion. Grow up you loser. The industry is doing just fine with you out there in Co influencing absolutely nothing. Have a great day.

Thanks for the input walove!

I'd like something that's good for a variety of conditions.

Now i'm trying to decide between the LIB TRS and the LIB Jamie Lynn C2BTX

I've read that the Lynn performs better in powder because it is set back, and is less grippy in normal conditions because its magnatraction is less pronounced. Still great for pipe and jumps apparently.

Thoughts?

Did I not just explain the rules of the internet?

Not to mention I have done more and will continue to do more for the industry than you. So there's that.

And third, congratulations on noticing the tone of my internet rules post. Which was comical and sarcastic. Pretty clear I thought... no?

If you've decide on Mervin definitely get the TRS. It's the best board they make. The Lynn is stiff. Not what you want for Bear and would really only be better than the TRS at Mammoth on a dump day.

Oh if you want Magne maybe check out the Rossignol TrickStick. I prefer camrock to any CRC. Its more locked in between the feet, better in every way on rails, floats just as well, and the the Mag on Rossi's is less pronounced than the TRS. In my experience it grips as much as you'll ever need it to, but never more. Where the Mag on the TRS is very much cruise control. Up on edge, wait, up on the other edge. It does all the work for you. Which for me is very blah.
