Rossi Templar vs Angus?

I'm trying to decide on a new board and I keep coming back to Rossignol boards. Largely I'm looking for control on ice because last season ice was a nightmare on my cambered 161 Arbor element(I'm 5'11" and 175lbs) I like that the Templar has the toned down magnetraction but the Angus is stiffer and the resort I work and ride has a lot of glorious steeps and big mountain terrain. My riding is pretty much all freeriding. After ice control, I want something that will be playful in the trees, carveable (wasn't a fan of the Lib Techs I tried because the aggressive magnetraction wasn't very fun for carving) and stable at high speeds. Thanks guys

The Angus sounds more like what you're looking for. Its just a bit more freeride dialed than the Templar

Snowboarding Is...

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

There is no MT on the Angus. As Nivek mentioned the Angus is likely closer to what you are looking for. I am not sure how the Lib Tech MT you rode compares to the mild MT version on the Templar.

If you can find your size, last years versions of both boards can be had for a song right now.

Good Luck !!!!!

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

The Angus definitely sounds perfect for riding on good conditions, but its the bad conditions I'm trying to plan for. As a lift op I don't really have a choice of staying of staying off the ice on a bad day. That's why I'm stuck between the Templar which would potentially be more traction on ice and the Angus which just might replace my Arbor as my every day board.
Last season I took a run on a skunk ape and a TRS and while the TRS was pretty sweet, carving just didn't feel quite right and they both felt rather heavy. I tried a K2 turbodream and that was absolutely a blast so I'm hoping our demo shop dumps last years stock again.

Evo has last year's model of both of them in my size right now for 179.90 or 186.90
