Atomic Banger? Pow/freeride board

Looking for a new pow/freeride board. My Libtech T.Rice is great but I want something more backcountry oriented with a bit better float.

Has anyone ridden the Banger?
I like the camber underfoot with rockered tips design (good stability on hard pack and good float)
They even made the tip rocker a bit longer than the tail t further aid float.
Oh and its $260 from evogear which makes it even more tempting.



Cheers.

Spec wise, it sounds like it'd fit the bill pretty well. I don't have any personal experience with the Banger (although I have "Banged Her", har har har), however, so I can't really give you much else on that specific board besides that.

I personally have an Atomic Radon (looks like the Banger replaced it) that used old school camber. Picked it up used this season and I have to say that I'm not sure why more people aren't riding Atomics if that's how they build all their boards. It's pretty awesome.

tl;dr: No personal experience, looks good though. Atomic as a company has a from me.
