miller was a typo ment to type mullet. The snowmullet is a much more fun ride than the slasher. I havent been on a birdman but is most likely a fun ride too. I feel reg btx works better in pow than c2, more float more surfy.

Absolutely. Not even close.

I actually felt like i didnt have to lean back as much in deep stuff compared to other shapes.

The C2BTX was really awesome switch in pow...I would say go with that profile for a twin mervin board. Sucked on hard-pack flats though...maybe just take some getting used to having that beach ball underfoot instead of camber
It does have camber under the feet. Reverse camber is in the middle.

I have a Roxy Eminence which is a camber under the feet and rocker with C2 banana traction. It is a twin made by Mervin

It does good at everything, but then that might be because I kill it. It is my only snowboard. I don't need a powder board. I rode it in some waist deep pow recently and it was great. It has many powder days under it's p-tex. I have not rode many dedicated powder boards. I do know this board is better in powder than the regular ol' twin and directional twin I owned and abused.

I don't know what all this chatter is about, you can't ride twins in powder. Ever.

Snowboarding Is...

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