Well a Skate Banana is a floppier than a Evo, with less pop - although I agree a SL would be better than a Proto if you already have a dedicated park board. This is me carving on a SL 155.

That's just talking about NS boards though... almost none of which are traditional full camber. Trying to think who still makes camber boards... maybe the Donek Phoenix. My avatar pic is of me riding a Phoenix in the halfpipe... but it is a great all-mountain carving board as well.

pharcyde can you post a video yourself riding to give us a better idea of what you preference/skill level is at?

My opinion: You should only start talking about preferring a "true" twin once you can do a 540... below that level, you aren't good enough for that type of thing to matter.
