I'm looking at this seasons 08/09 GNU Riders Choice board.

Can anyone tell me if you can get this with Both BTX & MTX.

I have asked various people and got mixed replies lol.

BTX is Banana with Magne Traction

MTX is Magnetraction only.

BTX is available on the RC, but is getting harder to find out there.

Thanks for that mate i was getting so confused looking at them lol.

Any thoughts on this board? Ive been riding a 157 society for the last few years.

Mainly piste work, some off piste and the very rare run through the park.

I ride an RC MTX everywhere, I don't know about reverse camber on really steep stuff, but it would be good for park. I really really like this board, and would buy another.

banana hammock has banana camber without magnetraction, but that board is purely for powder.
