PM Oldman he was the reason I bought the OneMag, his post on OneMag will give you much more than I could.

My 2 cents.

Pop: Not the best person to comment on pop.

Crud & Chop: OneMag handles crude no problem with the OneMag I transition from edge to edge more often through the crud.

Crud & Chop: RipSaw i'm in attack mode on edge longer through the crud, it just begs to go faster.

Ice: I ride the IceCoast at 7 Springs PA, & JayPeak VT, Toady at 7 Springs ice conditions where bad.

The OneMag just ate up the Ice it was the board in attack mode.

RipSaw handled the ice but I had to be on the top of my game.

Been on RC and the RipSaw which is not the Proto but IMO it's similar. Was not a fan of the RC. The RipSaw is hands down the best board period.

Proto would be my choice.

SnowDogWax Season pass at 7 Springs & JayPeak VT, 100 days last year 38 this year!

Triple8Sol I owned both at the same time and it's a tough call. Both are fun and versatile all mountain decks. The Gnu gets the edge on ice with the magnetraction but the Proto has more pop.

I ride the East Coast 7-Springs PA, & JayPeak VT,

I ride the 2013 Agent IMO a tad to much rocker. Agent is very playful easy edge to edge and a great board to carve. But at high speed the stability for me was lacking.

RipSaw felt stable weather flat basing or carving no matter how fast. RipSaw can bomb those morning groomers. The RipSaw is fun board not catchy, edge to edge transition is easy, was able to ride switch, spin, hit small kickers and medium size jumps. So IMO RipSaw can be either an all moutain freeride or all moutain freestyle board. While the Agent is a good all mountain freestyle board.

Did not ride pipe last year or this on any board. I'm not extra good on the jump line either.
