Default 2010 lib tech skunk ape vs. 2009 NS legacy R

I have read a few posts regarding these two boards and just want to throw my two cents in. I first owned the Legacy R and rode it about 20 times in the 09 season. The rocker camber is awesome and does provide great high speed stability and the added bonus of rocker tech so it was a real nice stick to bomb runs or easy to land jumps confidently with. I then got the skunk ape for a screaming deal i couldn't pass up and rode that a few times last year before i finally started to get used to the mtx. after switching between both boards (sometimes even on the same day) I'd have to say my board of choice is the skunk ape. Being a rocker board makes it seem to float the pow a little better and eat the chop and bumps without going through to your legs and body. The mtx gives you confidence for any condition because of how well it carves into the snow and takes the line you want. I also think the banana technology/mtx makes it ride more like a skateboard since it seems to only have input by the mtx from which side you are putting your weight on.

I have the 170 legacy R and the 169 skunk ape so the sizing is similar. Hope the feedback is helpful. I'm an intermediate freerider/all mtn rider and enjoy the occasional stroll thru the park for some jibs or rollers. By no means am I maxing out any capability on either board.
