Common issue with customer service guys at many snowboard brands - they tend to reply quickly, but the response is often inaccurate or plain wrong. Never Summer and Mervin are the worst in that respect, in my experience.

I messaged them asking what the angles of the 2012 gnu altered genetics
You might want to ask her about her previous email that was quoted here...

I contacted Mervin and asked them specifically about Skate Banana, their reply was 0/90

It wasn't really a question just a comment on his response to my opinion in post 2 that a skate bananna isn't the greatest board for use on ice and hard pack. I have 2 boards with magnetraction so I'm pretty familiar with how it works and what it does. I'm also of the belief that any board can be ridden any where on the mt in any condition. That being said I personally use a board best suited to the overall conditions of the day and, or the riding I'll be doing.

RedRomo I ride the mt (magna-traction) boards on pack and ice because I DO notice the difference with them. I ride my DH otherwise. Sorry, wasn't very clear on that post.
