Thanks for the feedback above

From those with banana tech boards, does the lack of camber (ie, addition of rocker) make it harder to handle on ice? In other words, does banana tech decrease the effectiveness of magnetraction or complement it? Given the BTX push, I would guess complement.

I am leaning towards a Lib-Tech Dark Series BTX 155 (for responsiveness).

Any opinions as to the relative ride of the Skate Banana, Total Ripper Series, or Jamie Lynn Phoenix BTX? I think the Ripper has an extruded base though--if so, it would be out.

The 08/09 boards look great (see link, Skate is wrong). I wish I could see the Gnu RC deck though.
