ive got a 09' banana and the only reason i picked one up is because it was on sale for $280. i really dig the rocker designs ride. i also have a ns evo r and i would never jib on it because its jump and freeride board. i thrashed the banana this season and it held up well. i do everything with it. i ride pow, jib, jump, it does it all and it does it well.
if you really want it itll be hard to find for whats left of this season's bananas.
but if you want something thall blow you away and make you think "fuck this board changes the game" get a bataleon or ns evo r.
if you want a board for jibbing and whatever, a banana will be fine.
