This is an epic board, one of the best in the rossi line up in my opinion. After riding with magne-traction i don't think i'll be going back to a straight edge. The Magne edge give you incredible hold on ice and hard packed snow, and when you're riding back-country you'll be happy to have it when you hit some variable snow. This would be the 1 board i would choose for everything. Park, powder, pipe, groomers, ect.
