burton fix

Would the Burton fix 162cm be all right for some one 6'0" tall about 195 lbs and a size 12 boot be good? I like to do everything on the mountain and want a softer type board but not to soft.

hmm.. well i'm 5'11 and 160 and ride a 155 Burton Hero just fine.. I dunno.. seems a tad on the high side. Are you looking to park? If so you're gonna wanna go a bit smaller. depends.

Another question how well do you think the fix does out side of the park because I'm not really that good at park but I want to get good at park.

But compared to the skate bananna which reviewers say is an awesome all round board. Do you guys think the Fix is a good option or are they 2 different boards for 2 different things?

Man I am now leaning towards the skate banana just because it seems more versatile , does this sound right? I'm reading the fix is a noodle and more of a park board?
