banana-tech is great. i just got a new GNU park pickle with banana-tech and its disgustingly easy and fun to ride. mervin (lib-tech and gnu) make great boards.

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??

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.
