Default Atom Boom vs MPC Black Magic vs classic Atom

I am not a fan of classic Atom wheels. My experience with 100mm One's and 110mm Matrix IQ is that the durability is good. The roll is OK. Rebound and general responsiveness are not great.

Meanwhile, MPC Black Magic in 110mm XFirm has been my goto race wheel for the last couple/three years. It doesn't wear as well as classic Atom but the performance is much better on my feet.

Right now, MPC Black Magic's are rather expensive in 110mm while Atom Boom is quite a lot cheaper. Since the Boom is MPC urethane on an Atom hub, I'm not sure what to expect. If Boom's perform like Black Magic then it's a good deal. If they perform like Matrix IQ's then I will pass. Even for training wheels (what this is for), it is just not worth it.

So, has anyone here tried them for long enough to form an opinion?
