So those of you with MTX boards, do you find that the OneBallJay Magne-Tool is really necessary, or can you use a standard file/guide just fine?

you still need a file guide for the base edge. the obj mtx tool only hits the side edge. you might be able to use a side guide, but the mtx tool is cheaper,and gets in the grooves better, so I went with that

yeah I talked to one of the guys at the shop about this and, according to him, a regular file will wear down the magne-traction.

I use Wintersteiger Quick Sharp tool. It's small enough to fit into the ridges of MTX. Also comes with diamond stone inserts. Better than magne-tool IMO.
