The general consensus as far as ive heard is that Magnetraction holds better, but sometimes to the point people dont like it.

Vario grip is slightly less as grippy, but no complaints about it sucking or being too grippy...

yeah, MTX without the rocker is annoying grippy. when combined with rocker both are pretty similar, although i think vario is more playful

vario- playful yet balanced grip... its basically there when you need it

Magnetraction- holds an edge even better! but sometimes gets too grippy (can both be a good thing or bad thing)

My board is a regular camber magnetraction and I agree. It holds really well and can be too grippy at time. The good thing is that you can always adjust your edges to reduces the grippyness.

i like magnetraction boards, it gives you a great grip. ive never experienced it being "too grippy", im not sure what people mean when they say that.
