One thing I have learned over the years od riding CTX is that you need a slightly higher edge angle when at higher speed if your not flat base bombing. I ride it a few ways.... Flat based straight lining going super fast. Flat base straight with skidded turns to burn off speed. Carving with over 20 degreeish edge angle. And combos of all of them...... Mines a kt22 but same profiles on base and edge.

Either way you look at it though, you will never beat the stability of a longer cambered board at high speeds

Nope. Almost got one last year, until I saw the NS Raptor. The rest is history.

That was another on my list when searching for big mountain freeride boards. Similar hybrid camber to NS but I did not want Magnetraction. Also have a local friend in South Lake steer me away from them because I guess he knows the guys and...well didn't have good things to say. I'll leave it at that. There are other reasons I chose the Raptor over it but those are the two major ones. BUT...good luck with it and report back on your thoughts after you ride it.

Ive ridden the smokin super park this entire season and that company makes quality products that stand up and perform. I love the magnatraction for the east coast riding here...... will report back once I get it...
