Thanks dude that helped. I dont ride much pow but i ride a lot of groomers and normally a lot of hard pack icy conditions. I know they are both park boards but i like the looser feel and flex to them. Would you still recommend them?

mtx has its ups and downs. it does have fantastic edge hold. however, the profiling of the edges messes with the edge to edge transitioning. also, this is very important::: if thee magne traction is NOT symmetrical from the center between your feet, your board will have an uneven tendency. trust me. in my opinion, magne traction rocks. i would rather takee speed down and edge control up.

I'm done with mtx and tip/tail that the metal edge doesn't wrap. Personal preference tho.

I like my banana magic for days when the snow isn't great. hard packed/ice/hasn't snowed in a few days. and my straight edged capita charlie slasher for the days when it has snowed/is snowing. the magic is nice on these days too but the mag feels like it digs the softer snow harder maybe too much.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

One of the best snowboard inventions, IMO. I want it on all my boards.

It's like having 4WD on a car. You don't have to worry about hitting ice and always have that confidence.
