Signal park rocker softness?

I'm considering buying the park rocker after hearing about its softness. I'm currently riding a Skate Banana and wonder how much different they are in terms of flex. Has anyone rode both and can compare? TIA

a board with a core made out of my dookie after eating a pack of ex-lax would be a plank compared to the park rocker.

very often it is referred to as the softest board ever produced, and since it has the rocker, its gonna feel even softer when riding it.
if i said it can be bent into a complete "U" shape, that might give you some perspective.

oh and compared to the skate banana, the banana is a 2x4 with bindings compared to the park rocker.

...thanks for the perspective alex, thats a lot more useful. I guess its worth the extra dough for something different. I thought they were similar in stiffness. That means its REAALLY easy to do a press then.
