Been riding Maga for about four years now and I've got to say living on the "Ice Coast" I mean East Coast there are no better boards out there. Loved my Skate Banana out of the package, hooked it up with a pair of Union Contacts and still love it the most out of all my boards I own. This one wasn't catchy or grabby from day one. Catch free shred, rules on hard pack, ice, or pow. Never once did I catch an edge on this board. The rocker camber took about a day to get used to. Ollie power is diminished some what but that's common on a rocker for the most part. Still my go to board for park and small mountain fun. Bought it shorter and wider for the park but seems to do it all. 156W which is more like a mid wide than true wide. But this has got to be my favorite deck. The Maga-Traction is no joke, you hardly have to sharpen it, can ride it some what dull for catch free presses and still hold an edge on ice with ease. Love his board, nothing but good things to say.
My all mountain rig is the TRS 162 and this one had to be de-tuned a bit due to a little catchy. Nothing to bad and nothing a gummi stone didn't fix in about two minutes. Still the rocker/camber isn't as playful as the Banana is. Don't get me wrong you can hard charge using the TRS and send it with ease. But the banana just seems to never catch an edge. Currently using the TRS with Rome 390 Boss bindings awesome all mountain set up. But when it comes to fun in the park I always go back to my Skate Banana. If you're thinking about getting one go for it. Used to ride Burton, Ride, and Rome. Still love Rome too but I'm all Lib-Tech now for the most part.
