The Attack Banana is a fairly stiff board. I rode both the SL and Attack Banana, but seperated by a year. But from what I can remember, the Attach Banana was slightly more stiff than the SL. Falling somewhere between an SL and Heritage.
Attack Banana and T Rice are true twins. Heritage and SL are directional twins. For midwest riding, I personally feel both the Rice and Heritage are overkill. One trip west a year isn't worth it IMO, because the SL and Attack Banana offer more play for messing around on natural features and the jump line. And if you are like me, that damn Ultra Fear is washy on anything over 15 feet.
I'd personally narrow it to the Attack Banana and the SL, and then, depending on whether you want to ride a lot of switch, or if you are directional, make your choice based on that. Both are good choices.
