When you're 100% confident in your ability to slow down no matter what, you wind up braking less; so while the guy on the faster base next to you is spending 1/3 of his time braking, if you're just hauling ass straight down the fall line, knowing that your edge will grab a hell of a hold on the mountain any time you need it to, you wind up going a lot faster than most people overall

crazyface trs is great. i didnt have any trouble getting used to mtx. i didnt even notice any difference at all between my old board and my new trs w/mtx. and my friend rides a custom with a sintered base and i destroy him on anything when we race.

oneoldman Just coming back to say that the TRS MTX is beyond amazing and that the only thing I don't like about it is that I love it too much to risk ruining it on rails so now I need a park specific board

The magnetraction makes a HUGE difference in icy and hardpack conditions, to the point where I can lay down full euro-carves on blacks that the skiers I ride with call "really icy" while still being able to hit anything that looks fun on the side of the trail. Over the course of the day that I got that board I went from being sketchy on blues to feeling confident on single blacks. Now I don't worry about doubles either.

The only real negative is that it took me a good 5 days to get my balance dialed enough to not catch an edge when riding on lumpy flats for longer distances. Now that is no longer a problem and I feel secure jumping with the board even on off camber, abused landings, with the edges fully sharpened. I find I need to wax it more often than my other board but that could be because I go A LOT faster on the TRS.

PapaWood Magnetraction can feel really weird to some people. I personally love it. It takes about a day to get adjusted to it but it really does give you a superior edgehold. I can't 100% guarantee you will like it as some people cannot stand the feel of it, but I personally think its great and simply takes a little time to get used to.

Also to clarify, the TRS was noewhere near being stiff for most, it was just a little stiff for my personal taste. It is an All-Mountain/Freestyle board so it should suit your needs for just about everything.

Well so long as its not as stiff as the Icon, I'll be happy, and if its that good all around (and I'm guessing these guys have ridden more boards than I've seen) then I cant really go wrong getting the MTX right?

PapaWood Practically the same board. The Riders choice is a little more freestyle based.
