None what so ever, but checking out the site, there are a ton of banana's so I'm probably gonna start filtering through soon, to try to narrow my sights a bit

Banana tech combined with magnetraction allow for an easier performing board...especially when it comes to things like initiating turns. If you are currently riding a 155 I would say go for a 152. If your worried about pow and groomers...don't be. The reverse camber compensates for the lower board height (keeping your speed) and the magnetraction helps you turn alot quicker and easier even at high speeds.
well i'm planning on getting the latest gnu street series in a 154 or a lib tech trs-btx in 154. will i run into any problems if i run with this? btw, i'm the guy that started this thread, the one that currently rides a 155

Emm I'm roughly around 150 in weight and use the 154 street for my riding all over the mountain, took it in 3feet of powder and it performed pretty damn well for what's considered a park board. I didn't want to go to large though because I still wanted to ride the park.

I'd say you should be ok...but if you really want to kill the park and still have great all-mountain performance....go lower. i'd say go 152...or if you're really into park...a 149. The GNU SS BTX has so much great technology behind it that i'd almost say that if you buy this board.....you'll never have to buy another board again. Let me know what you decide to do
