Love the Burton Fish and the Malolo but this Lib Tech Banana Hammock looks like a goer for blower conditions (which, oddly, is my preference). So who's tried it? A little feedback please.

This thing is difficult to ride anywhere but powder, the odd shape makes it dig into groomers when you try to edge. You end up eating it a lot and being frustrated. I own a fish, floats just as well and you can ride it out to the lift without issue. I don't own the B.Hammock, but I have rode it on multiple occasions. My buddy has one, and has found out the "trick" so you don't dump on groomers which is to slide instead of edge. I personally rather ride the fish. The main advantage is you can ride switch in powder on this thing, which is a no go with the fish. I think the fish has a more fun feel in pow, with easy quick turns and slashes. This thing is also heavy, due to it's giant size.
