Skate Banana is the most awesome board that exists... until you hop on another good board even within the Lib Tech line.
I'd even rather have a Park Pickle than an SB.
Same with your bindings. I find a lot of Union lovers have not tried their fair share of good bindings. Upgrading from old Drakes to a Union obviously makes Unions seem holy.
Sorry, not knocking your setup. Just the hype behind it
In the end, the SB is a decent board. I'll keep my mouth shut about the Unions though haha.
Me: (on another forum type thing) Anyone jealous of my Proto CT?
Person (several of the same nature): Nope! I have a Lib Tech Skate Banana! Best board ever!
Me: Have you tried a Never Summer?
Person: Nope. I upgraded to the Skate from a Burton Air.
Me: Well, then you really need to try other boards.
