m00seMagna traction is awful it reduces your effective edge and provides less edge contact with the snow, resulting in more chattery and less smooth turns when on edge. It also messes with the skis side cut radius by adding waves to what should be a smooth arc the wavy edge prohibits executing good arching carves. The skis also don't have a full steel wrap edge. This causes problems with de-lamination and durability. Adding magna traction to a ski with re-curve (early rise) also pulls contact points toward the skis center which makes the skis actually perform on a smaller sidecut. I work in a shop and you would not believe the amount of snowboards that we get that have their edge sticking out of the front because they're not full wrap. No good on groomers, prolly okay in powder. Consider a Line Blend if you want a buttery ski that can ski groomers and pow.
Thanks man. I have a pair of chronics that are like blends but just wanted something new and was looking at these. Thanks for all the info
