The Banana seemed softer than the Pickle to me even though they are rated about the same. The Pickle also seemed stiffer than the TRS. All similar sizes (156, 156, & 157), 2009 releases. The Pickle has the asym. sidecut (deeper on heel side), but I don't notice it very much. Pickle has a blunt tip shape, while Banana is rounded. Other than that, price and brand preference could play a role??? Have fun deciding!

yeah, i notice pickle has the sidecut thing makes the board really interesting. I kinda leaning toward the pickle since is "limited release" only 300 are made

i don't think the park pickle is stiffer than the trs. trs is mid-stiff whereas the pickle is about the same stiffness as the banana

Well I own the Pickle and I demo'd the TRS and Banana. Those are my impressions having ridden all three over a short period of time. In fact I was hoping the Pickle would have been softer (like the TRS I demo'd) but that wasn't the case.
