Now mellow mag seems to have fixed my issue, but then I think it's only on par with some of the better done non-bumpy sidecuts out there.

Which I'm not saying you can only like Magne if you can't turn. If you like it more power to ya. And if you do just like Magne the best, then yeah, Mervin is the only brand that fits your requirements. Though I'd like to say that in no way in my eyes justifies their price.

For your TRS try a Flow Era, for your Magic the Rush. Flow's 5 radial sidecut is one of, if not the most grippy non-bumpy sidecuts I've ridden.
Appreciate the input and suggestions.
I'll have a look.

Gotta say, I dont give a fuck what anyones opinion of my boards are. I ride a Gnu metal guru and a Gnu Dirty Pillow and both are sick. Sure Ill try other boards, but these are the go to's. Out here on the eastern edge of the ice coast the magnetraction goes a long way. They werent crazy expensive, but they are dope. I honestly feel like they may be worth more than they cost, but dont tell gnu.

I'd also suggest the Rossignol's with the 5S, mellow Mag side cut. Maybe J. Jones too.

Hey's interested in CRC only, there are a million RCR options out there, but very few companies seem to do CRC, other than those mentioned already...

I guess we can all agree lots of boards are very good and make us happy. Some don't care what brand they have, others identify with a certain brand, others are against certain brands...Whateves.

Looks like no one who likes their board is going to be persuaded to change what board they ride anyway.

I've ridden a GNU Carbon Credit and Never Summer heritage, quality of both were good but I think overall the GNU seemed better. Plus GNU/Lib have a cool vibe and sick graphics.

Therefore, I just got a T rice pro at 50% off.. Thinking about ordering a GNU Beast.
