I am not having trouble on ice. I can go through just about any slope. But my goal is to get my belly as close to the snow a possible while carving the mountain. I figured sharper edges would fix this problem. I only detuned the tip and tail (not the entire effective edge). As far as magne-traction, I have not tried it. But my other two snowboard buddies have lib techs and they blaze down the mountain. Not sure that shape exits a carve the way the custom x (cambered) does though.

I always tune my boards myself but I think its worth taking to a professional to see what they can do. I live in the cheyenne, wy area. Anyone know of a good shop to take my board. Only place I have ever seen is a sports authority in our mall. Anyone know of a good place in Denver? I could always drop off and pick up later.
