Does this board flex like the skate banana?...

Does this board flex like the skate banana? I hear it's stiffer, but their both a 6 on the flex meter just wondering if anyone knows if this board is easy to butter?

From riding both boards I would have to say that that the TRS is a hair stiffer then the banana. It is pretty easy to butter but being slightly stiffer you have to put your weight into a a bit more.

The TRS is much more of an all mountain board then the Skate Banana. That being said you can definitely jib the s#$t out of this board. I have both the skate banana and the TRS, and I have found that the TRS rides better on the types of various conditions you will encounter especially out west. Bottom line is that both boards kill it, I just happen to like the stiffer TRS.

Yeah the TRS is quite a bit stiffer than the Skate so much that I was really surprised that they are rated the same. Both boards are epic and BTX has ruined me for now. However if I had to choose I would go with my Skate cause it has made me realy lazy and it attracts a lot of attention. hahaha. And how much effort do you realy want to put into buttering?
