Both retail for the same price so I guess the price difference depends on the deal you can find.
Wait wait wait. You're telling me a progressive sidecut is less responsive than a radial one? You realize that's against basic physics?

A hyper progressive sidecut is more responsive than radial. If you can't get at it that's not my fault. Riding Mervin makes me lazy. Everything is done for you and they aren't terribly energetic. Sheet ice is the only place magne will out turn hyper progressive.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
