GNU Carbon Credit Experience

So, I just received a new GNU Carbon Credit with banana tech and Magnatraction and my home hill has been able to blow a lot of manmade "Indiana Powder", so I thought I'd test the board out today. My first impression made me wish I had brought my NS Revolver with me instead. I noticed on the areas where "powder" was thicker, if I carved hard, the board washed out and I ended up skidding on my ass...felt a little like a beginner again...I also noticed that the edge would lock in and get kinda grippy, making it less maneuverable. I haven't de-tuned the edges, but will now so that it hopefully is less grippy, but I thought for sure Magnatraction would help hold an edge even on powder...despite the banana shape.

Anyone else have this experience and will de-tuning the edges make that much of a difference? So far, I'm not a big fan...almost wish I would have taken someone's advice in a previous thread and passed on the GNU and stuck with my NS. The main reason I bought it though was not for conditions like today, which for my hill, powder is not the norm...hard pack and ice is.

Thanks,

Andy
