    Posted: Aug/14/2009 at 12:06pm
Thank you for looking at this post.  Your contributions and opinons are appreciated.   

I am thinking about buying a lib tech 09 TRS MTX brand new from a friend for $150.  Its a 159, I'm 5'10 and around 200lbs.   I ride mainly groomers and resort.  I am defintly more beginner/intermediate than intermediate/advanced..  Do you think this would be a good board for me?  I currenty ride a Sierra Crew which i won but I think i want something with better edge hold.  Oh yah, i ride in Tahoe if that makes a difference.  Let me know your thoughts!!  Thanks again

For 150 bucks you can't go wrong with that one.

The TRS is quite stiff for a novice, but yer weight will balance things out. $150 is a great deal. I say buy it. I will never go back to a non-magnatraction board. Its that good.

When i first started snowboarding i rode a Lib tech Tear Yea, a super soft board.  prob about the same as the 09 crew.    anyways, i was at the stage in my riding where i was prob a mid intermediate, but thought i was really good. (we were all there)  

anyways, i bought a board pretty similar to the TRS, and while is was a big step and i had bit of a time adjusting to the difference in flex, i think it was an ok step to take.  

The TRS isn’t that much of an advanced board. I think it would be ok.   What you may experience is the board feeling like it is a little harder to maneuver (because of the flex), it could possible feel a little dead, but that’s you just getting used to it. 


You'll be ajusted to the change in about a day

Buy it.  It's rideable at your specs at the very worst if you decide you want something different you can turn it around closer to the season for a bit of a profit.

It's a stiffer board, but you should be fine after some adjustment.

If you're more beginner/intermediate though, I have to wonder what you were thinking taking on the Wall at KW.  It's not that bad honestly, but at that level I think I would have pissed my pants with all the "EXPERTS ONLY" signs LOL
ROLL ON, BISHES.

On second thought, I did some calculations with a Cray supercomputer and have determined that if you attempt to ride that board, you will surely die in a thermonuclear explosion.  Best bet is to give me your friends number and let me buy it.

"I hhhaaaateeee yOoooOoOoouUuU!"    but after like the 10th time i went snowboarding.. "the wall" was fine.

It's not that stiff.. It really won't be too stiff at all since he's 200 lb.. $150 is a steal. Get it, if you haven't already.

Haha Kirkwood's sick! "the wall"! I remember going down that thing on a really icy day a couple years ago... It was SO loud with the sound of people's boards scraping on ice. Worst sound in the world. Anyways, my girlfriend cried.

So advanced boards aren't good for beginners? How do I know if a board is advanced?
