Default too much characteristic overlap??

I have a man's board that i love. i ride a lot in VT and NY. Planning to move out west in a couple years. Ive been snowboarding since 97 & owned 1 other board but never paid much attention to the latest and greatest till a few years ago cuz i was racing bikes and didnt have the extra hobby money.

Im 5'10", 185-190lbs 8.5boots.
I ride fast. I love bumps, trees, carving hard and steeps. I drive all night to get powder when its available (not enough the last two years)
I will jump the occasional park roller but never consider rails or anything of the sort.

recently, Ive been considering a LibTech. After some scrutiny of their selection, I think a Banana Magic would be a nice step up. The idea of Magnetraction sounds awesome.

My question is: Would the banana magic just be really similar to the mans board for the way i ride? Im looking for something different to round out my riding options. Thank you for your advice.

How would we know the overlap with your current board that you failed to name?

I assume he has one of these Salomon Man's Board Snowboard 2013 | evo
I think the magic will do what you want but ride different enough to be a good addition
