Prior to owning the TRS, I rode a Burton Joystick 157 (V-Rocker), so my opinions about the TRS are based on the difference between the 2.
My first TRS had the metal sidewall come undone from the sidewall. Sent it back for warranty and they were all sold out, and have to wait a few months for the new line to come in. In anycase, I liked this board so much that I'm purchased another while waiting for my 1st trs to come back in a few months.
The magna traction shreds east coast ice like butter. The hybrid camber (camber under your feet and rocker between the camber) is poppy and responsive, just how I like. Carving through black diamond moguls was a breeze, the board turns when you want it to, unlike the joystick.
The weight of this board feels a little heavy with burton cartels, I'm not sure if it's the board or the bindings. But with all the pop, I can't tell that it's heavy unless I actually pick the board up to carry.
With that said, I only give this board a 4 out of 5 because of my warranty issues. Other than that, this deck is bad a$$
