on my banana i found that I could ollie higher over obstacles where explosive power was needed but thougt it was harder to ollie big and stable where a slow steady ollie was needed like a long gap or what have you.. I feel it was due to the banana tech having that small dead zone when you loaded it up because of the reverse camber... so a little ollie over a small obstacle like someones board on the snow still had to be loaded up like you were ollieing something larger ... this is only my experience with the banana other camber alternatives are built different like capitas flat kick which supposedly makes up for that lil oddity

Bananas are not technically a noodle so you can still rely on the tail for "some" of the pop for the ollie. If you are talking a noodle like the park rocker, then don't expect to preload the tail before launch. It is all in your feet. It feels completely different and took me a week to master the "skatelike" ollie.

However, once you get used to it, I could actually ollie higher because of how high I could lift my font leg before popping my back leg.
