Depends on what you want to do...
I bought this board because I wanted magne-traction and banana tech - but I didn't want to loose stability on steep lines. In general the C2BTX does just that - it gives you enough banana to float (it's noticeable, but it's not completely effortless), the mag never looses an edge - and the board is definitely stiff enough to hold up on the most demanding lines I could find. This board is a little stiffer than I was expecting, and it's not very playful in the mellow terrain. Get ready to ride aggressive on this one - because it demands it. And be ready for an adjustment period the first few days of riding it - the C2BTX takes some getting used to...
The good: Holds up well on steeps, goes huge and nails every landing. This thing feels solid and I totally trust it on the big stuff.
The bad: The base feels a little slow. The board feels a little dead underfoot (not very poppy). The edges feel a little grabby on the groomers (but I think I'm still getting used to the C2BTX). Don't expect to learn new tricks on this one, it's not very forgiving.
Unless you're always off piste, this probably isn't a one board quiver.
it's the schralpiest
i'm honestly not that great of a boarder but was able to keep up with the boys pretty well on this. definitely agree with banana-beal on the fast + stable. and it felt great in icy conditions.
this is one of my favorite boards to ride. I can go fast and feel stable. I love it in the powder too, the banana technology makes it incredible to ride and easier on your legs.
