no, it rides good when you are not hauling for sure, when i ride at cypress its mostly night riding, so its all groomers, and i never had any problems last year. if not there im ridin pow in whistler, and the board is awesome all around, kills it in the pow. it could be stiffer for me, but its only a 6.5 flex. but all the c2 boards are pretty much the same. main difference is graphics and sizes. the TRS is a nicer board, imo, it has columbian gold core and riders choice just has normal wood, the gold is suppose to be lighter and stronger. either way you'll be happy with it.

Nolefan2011 Hardpack, around March so it wasn't even that hard anymore. Morning it was. Fun board, don't get me wrong. But coming from a T Rice, it was pretty loose. The C3 might be a great solution for people looking for a more stable feel under foot.

C2 feels dialed on the Jamie Lynn and Travis Rice, but it was missing something on the TRS.

I have a feeling that Hot Knife could be a really sick board for people that wanted the play of the TRS, without the completely squireliness that goes with it.

What's your experience on the TRS? How/when was it squirrely?

ttchad Yes Finally! I enjoyed playing around on a NS heritage but hated the fore aft feeling on snowment. I also was not very confident on the C2 shape when it was time to pick up speed. I just had to buy one of these. It just may replace my Rome Agent. The agent has a bevel on the base which sucks for real hardpack but has plenty of pop! I hope the C3 does too!

nip175 yea thats why i want it, im not a huge fan of the c2 when it comes to groomers. not enough edge hold for me. i've blow multiple tires doin mach speed. dont get me wrong the c2btx is good, but its ability to hold a nice edge is not nearly as good as a camber board. other than that, it kills the mountain. i just can't wait to see how this c3 plays out and if it blows up next year. im not a huge fan of my magne traction either. i dont think its nearly as good as its hyped up to be. im hoping it will be better with the c3. guess we'll wait and see. but if anyone gets one i'd love to know how it rides, specially if you are comin off a c2btx
