Does the Banana technolongy really have a effect as for more effective turning?? I mean if the tip is elevated just beyond the plane of the board wouldnt that make for less effective turning?? because the tip would not be making contact??
thoughts?>??

Also what do you guys think of the dark series as an all mt board??
Thanks for the input guys!!!
if you want a board thats great at turning look at the park pickle. it has a deeper heelside cut which makes turning easier. although it is designed mainly as a park board, so i dont know if it would suit your needs. this one is also very flexy, a little stiffer than a skate banana. i rode it today down some groomed and ungroomed slopes (blacks and blues mainly) and it did fine.
