For me the experience was quite dramatic the first time I rode a board like this. It requires you to lean a lot more, but it rewards you with a TON of grip on hardpack/ice. I've never felt anything like it before![/QUOTE]
I agree a Boarder X board is obviously gonna be by far the best for high speed ice carving and groomer grip and will blow through crud. Billy goating and such I'm not so sure, never tried it. As far as normal priced boards go for carving and handling the ice and crud. A stiff Cambered board is the most proven weapon for edge grip but I'm definitely feelin the mag traction too. Its like having 4X4 when you need it. The winner of the Rhalves Banzai rocked a Nitro Pantera, he smoked all the Boarder X guys including Shaun Palmer, Nate Holland on their thousands of dollars in custom Boarder X race boards and Wax teching , Banzai is a red bull ballz out race through the iciest, steepest part of some the mountain with a ice mogul infested course. There are so many factors that will determine what type of board is the best for what situation.
