You know I don’t think I’ve ever felt that brake before. Although maybe it just didn’t kick hard enough to notice.

It's a small "pause" before the drop/photo shot. I don't think I've ever ridden Bull withOUT that brake on

We are talking about the brake after the photo op. It’s directly before the figure eight after the track encompasses the first drop.

I've ridden Bull over 70 times, and I've only felt that trim activate about 3 or 4 times. It seems to activate whenever the train is going faster than normal. For example, two Sundays ago (28th), it was absolutely hauling, and the final trim was definitely on. It doesn't slow you down much, but you can definitely feel the deceleration.

I've ridden Raging Bull well over 100x and I don't think I've noticed any trim brake AFTER the photo op........

^ Yeah it's right where you begin those small turns before the brake run. There is a section of straight track and then trim.
Lightning Rod is finally open! Oh wait it closed.
