your reviews are full of flaws. u already admit that the boards you tried are way too big for you.... so why not try something your size and then compare apple to apple?
also i agree there's not a single board in mervin's line up that i would jib/park with... their boards are best for riding and is one of the best at that. take a suv on to the track doesn't make sense. nor is taking a porsche off roading. they each have their own purposes
I somewhat agree with you here. I would never consider jibbing with a mervin board but the banana magic is a great jump board. I bet there are better but the magic holds its own. Plus it is a great powder board! Really want to try out the T1 though. Looks solid
