Board choice w/ Union Chargers L/XL

I am an intermediate to advanced rider with a question about board and binding combinations

Currently ride:

Lib Tech Skunk Ape 161 w/ Rome Targa or Union Charger
Rome Slash 158 w/ Targa

I dusted off my Slash this past season and realized how much more versatile it is than the Skunk Ape (even though I will always love the ape)

This made me want to find a narrower all mountain board to combo with my Chargers. Is magnetraction on the Ape causing my riding to feel more sluggish?
What would you guys recommend riding w/ the Chargers?

Any recommendations?? Thanks

Granted you have the bindings now, but you are doing it backwards.

Whether it's actually the Magne or not is hard to say, but yes Magne does create more drag.

Look into the YES PYL, K2 Ultra Dream, Ride Berzerker, Flow Drifter, Salomon Mans Board, or a Signal OG Flat.

Backwards as in should've gotten a board then found a suitable pair of bindings?

Yeah. In this case you already had the bindings and are replacing the board. Really if you find something to truly replace your Goat and the bindings were good on the Goat, they'll be good on the new stick.
