Ride TMS or Burton CustomX

You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.

We have mostly man made and very heavily used hills here and they get icy fast. I had a LibTech regular camber board last year and yes my edges were always sharp. My LibTech Skate Banana handles much better on the icy hills here. I am able to get much deeper turns and the control feels great on those less than optimal days.

I'm happy with it and our Midwest winters aren't the best, but it's what we have. This board has helped me ride our local hills.

Just my experience like you asked for. Good luck on the your decision and let us know what you chose.
