burton boards and Ice

Do the burton boards have anything like mtx or vario grip to get a better hold on ice? I am still thinking about getting a burton joystick but my current lib tech with btx and mtx holds so well on ice that I am a little worried to switch.

sounds like you're happy with the btx and mtx, why switch?

My brother really wants this board so i am giving it to him as a present, I need to buy a new board either way so I figured I would try something new. The Joystick has gotten some great reviews, but I am starting to wonder how much of an all mountain board it really is.

If my memory serves me right it's PDE - Pressure Distributed Edge.

Just wondering do you guys actually slip on ice that much every season for it to effect the board you buy? I prob slip like 2 times a season and my hill gets pretty bad.

True, that's usually the numer of times a season I washout on ice as well. However, the speeds I hit when really charging hard, would ruin me if i hit an ice patch, and then landing on said ice would be pretty brutal too. And some mountains like Pano, or anywhere East, ice is all you ride on. It comes in handy, less falling = less injuries & more fun
