while my 189 hell bents are rad, they are know comparison to the Craig Kelley Slope Style I used to ride i high school. Yep fat skis are just like snowboards and I love them so much I don't snowboard any more. Now I really want to try lib techs magna traction skis because all my friends who snowboard all have magna traction boards... I really want to be like a snowboarder but I ski and its like way different and totaly better.

The magne traction isn't all that great. It helps on hard pack and ice, but the difference isn't that extreme. At least I can't tell the difference that much. The reverse camber though is a lot of fun.

BTW: the video was great.

I like the magne traction and on hard pack or ice it holds like you are on a rail. So it was real good for the first half of this year...

Rocker is good as long as you are riding pow.. My pow stick has 9cm of rocker and is great for the 2-3+ feet of blower I will be ridin today but this much rocker is not acceptable for crossing ice say in a runnel..

Right now my resort stick is a lib tech btx 164.5 it has both the camber and rocker.. So far it is the best board I have ridden at a resort.. The lib tech banana hammock is the best pow stick I have riden ever - it is only 160 cm long but even a groomed surface is hard to ride across..

That is awesome, earlier this season I had my fatties strapped A-frame style to my pack up in the park - this little kid started yelling to his mom "She has TWO snowboards, wow!"

Yeah, they are like snowboards and they rock.
