Magne is too much.
GripTech is money.
YES is bogus.
Burton's works if the camber zones in the Flying V aren't too aggressive.
NS is great.
Rossi is Magne, Jones is Magne, Gnu is Magne.
Flow uses a 5 radial that works great.
My thoughts exactly on the GripTech and Magne. GripTech is like just enough extra bite and perhaps most importantly it's right where you need it under your feet to get the best out of it. I think it's just ergonomically better and more natural than magne.

Niche and Smokin and probably a few other brands are also licensing Magne.

Salomon has a few decks that run three unblended sidecuts that are decent but I don't think really compare to Arbor/Mervin/NS.
