I would lean more on the side of getting used to it ... Finding the sweet spot and stuff . When I got my Villain it felt sloppy almost compared to the Evo and initially my Ollie's weren't as high or easy .. But I've gotten used to it and my opinion on the board is totally different

tradnwaves4snow a few people asking about how long til a TRS softens up. well I dont have a TRS but last years trice with about 40 something days on it. its the 157, im about 200 pounds and definitely feels a little softer than it was but without riding it straight after a new one it would be hard to notice.

if you want a soft board buy a soft board. not a stiff board you hope will be as soft as you hoped a season later.

East§ide for what its worth, my Evo felt like it broke in some around the 25 day mark.. got poppier, looser, just overall it felt broken in..

Try giving buyers your actual assessment of how the board performs. Just because a board doesn't fit your style doesn't mean it won't fit another boarder's style. Someone else might want a stiffer board than you--or have a better idea of how the board performs than you did when you got it. I put out some honest criticism (good and bad) about my TRS and actually got an offer for the board.

And this brings me to the same question with a little more specifics. I have a 2013 TRS 162. The TRS 162 is rated as a 7 flex (whereas the 159 has a 6 flex). The board is a little on the stiff side for me, but if it breaks in a bit I could see enjoying the board a lot more. I weigh 190 lbs and have ridden it about 15 times. Any ideas on how many days it will take to break in?

Holla at that Godfathers!

Anyways to whoever asked about the TRS I have a 2012 B-Pro which is kinda similar that I got used after like one season. It is significantly softer than new one and can like butter and it actually presses well and is stable but I wouldn't say it is a jib noodle at all and I have rode it hard in the park this year as well. If it it starts out NOT a jib board its NOT going to turn into one once it softens up most likely. Dedicated jib boards have different cores and FG weaves that are going to flex better in any circ.

Mr_Orange Anyone put in a lot of days on the lib tech TRS?

Does it jib and press well eventually?

snowklinger My Proto softened up significantly around day 60. Around day 100 it became pasta. Now its just gnocci.
