T. Rice HP vs Attack Banana - My Dilemma
Okay, so just another comparison/recommendation thread. I know that these are very different boards, but here are my thoughts:
I used to own a T. Rice HP and loved it for bombing and carving. Going through the choppy stuff felt like floating with no issues. As I progressed to the park I started to enjoy playing and felt my T. Rice was a little stiff so I got rid of it. Now that I have more experience I really miss my T. Rice and its stability at speed.
Based upon reviews, they say the Attack Banana is great at high speeds, yet offers a little more versatility that can be found in the park. I realize this thing won't handle quite like the T. Rice, but will it hold up? The TRS is out as it's too narrow and my boot is a Burton shrink tech size 12.
So should I go with the T. Rice HP again and just muscle my way through the few jibs that I will be hitting and enjoying the bombing or side with the Attack Banana and enjoy perhaps more versatility and a playful ride while still being damp and solid. By the way, I dont really care about a TNT base as I might prefer not waxing everytime I go out anyway.
