Lib Tech Banana Magic vs. GNU Impossible ASS Pickle

For those who have ridden the two, any thoughts on how they compare to each other???

I currently have the banana magic, and am considering picking up the ass pickle if i can find a good deal...

Any feedback is appreciated

Two somewhat different boards.
Magic has much more rocker and way deeper sidecut => great in powder and super turn happy. Far from the best for groomer bombing and all out charging.
GNU Impossible is the equivalent to the Attack Banana in shape => a bit more stability and charging inclined (but not too much considering the EC2 profile).

To be honest, I always thought the AB was a bit of a strange animal - too stiff to be really playful, but not a real charging board either. Not bad in the trees, though.
Love the Magic, but thought it was a deck for pretty specific application - in the end did not use it enough and gave it away.

Would love to hear some more opinions on this. I can't decide among the 2 boards. I've been reading up on both, and people have different opinions, so not sure what to trust.

What are your preferred/intended riding style and location, requirements, etc. They are different boards for different purposes.

I ride all mountain freestyle - trees, natural features, pow. Groomers and park only if there is absolutely nothing else to do. Jibbing and urban - never.

hk, any more insight you could provide on this?
I love my BMagic, but I'm really curious about the Impossible.
What do you see as the different purposes for these two boards?

Magic much more pow friendly and, because of the deep sidecut, super turn happy.
Impossible more or less like the Attack Banana - more stable and more of a charger board than the Magic.

The Impossible felt like a giant turd when I rode it. If you're looking for another Mervin to compliment your current board get a TRS, I was actually able to have fun on that one.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Thanks for the comments guys.
I think you kept me from making a big mistake!
I"ll stick with my BMagic.
I got a 2013 TRS a few weeks ago, so that suggestion confirms my thought process.
