BTX or MTX for mountain / Freeride?

Guys/Gals,

I did my searches and my question is, for mountain riding, is banana BTX (including magnetraction) or MTX Magnetraction only the best choice? I think the consensus is Magnetraction only but I want a clear opinion

Thanks!

For maximum handling at high speed the general consensus is a cambered board will be more stable than a rocker.
