Can you give us a rough idea how this compares to a Bataleon Freeride type board? I've been thinking of picking one of these up to complete my "quiver".

The TRS is Lib's best all-mountain board, so it can do it all. With the rocker/banana, it's stable on jumps in the park and forgiving enough when I didn't land perfectly. It also stayed on top of pow really well, so my back leg didn't burn up. Also cuts through crud and crust without much chatter. It's a great board.

I just picked up the board from the shop yesterday, after dropping it off for a professional performed full tune-up including base grind, hot wax, and edge tuning. This thing is literally ready to ride.

I was doing searches on Ebay and online retailers for baords with Magnetraction, and I think this is the most reasonably priced one I've seen period.

I happened on a bataleon fun.kink on ebay for a super cheap price, or I would snag this.

Sweet deal!!!!
