I am facing the same decision as you. Because of the c2 shape of the TRS, I heard it makes it more of a freeride/all-mountain board. The ec2 shape of the Space Case is supposed to be more for freestyle/all-mountain. If you are serious about getting into jibs, I would suggest the Space Case. On the other hand, the TRS would be more stable when riding on groomers, but it has an extruded "TNT" base which is not as fast as the Space Case's sintered base. thegoodride.com has an in-depth review of both of the boards. They are both supposed to be good in the pow because of the rocker between the feet, but I would think that the Space Case's shape would provide better float. The Space case has .5 magne-traction which will be less grabby in softer snow, but also won't be very good on ice. Both boards are supposed to be very poppy and great for jumps. Are you planning on a TRS or a TRS hp? The hp is lighter, more lively, and also more flexible, but it's not as damp as the regular TRS. It all comes down to your riding style, aggressive-TRS, or more playful-Space Case... I hope this helped.
