I have a Hot Knife too. I came from a Custom X to Hot Knife. The HK does turn easier. Seems like it always "wants" to turn, which I like. I have the 159 model. I am still trying to get used to the magne traction, but I am liking it.

Only issue I have had with it is going slow when I hit flat spots. But I think it was because I lost all the wax on it. I had a nice waxing put on it and it runs better now. I think as long as you keep it waxed, it should be good.

there was a whole great debate on thread I posted. Look for "faster bases on boards".

But since I have been getting more used to the board, it is rare I run out of speed on the flat spots. I will admit the Custom X is faster, but the Hot knife is more fun.

I am using Ride Capo bindings with it and its a pretty good setup.
