TRS - All Mountain Advanced Slayer. Not just for Park Riders.
By Colb Ranked #1640 - Boards February 24, 2011
I picked up the TRS 162 with the C2BTX last week from Dog Funk. 6' 2" 145 pounds and Advanced riding for 11 years, and the funnest board I have ever been on. Rode powder in Central Idaho on Sunday and it floats great. Rode packed powder and it was more stable and dampens better than any board I have been on. I usually get pitched around because I am so light. Rode hard snow night skiing last night and Magna Traction is the all time slayer for hard snow. I usually feel like ice skating on hard snow due to my light weight, but Magna Traction grips crazy good.
I was worried about the multi-camber construction slowing me down on hard snow. That is not the case. I was right on pace with all the board/ski friends who rip for the first time all season. I cannot wait to try it on Ice and see how the Magna Traction does. I waivered between the 159 and 162 because of my weight. I stay out of the park, so I went with the 162. My suggestion to all advanced riders who stay out of the park is to go up one size. More float in the powder, and I don't even notice the difference in leght. Enough stiffness for all mountain stability but still with big pop.
Wished I would have tried Lib earlier. This is truly the 1 Board Quiver All Mountain Slayer I had been looking for. Watchout everyone else. Lib is going to take over.
