Lib Tech Dark Series C2 BTX Wide or Skunk Ape BTX?

Hey...trying to decide between a new Lib Tech Dark Series C2 BTX wide and the Skunk Ape BTX. I'm a big guy (6'5, 210) and was leaning towards the Skunk Ape until I heard about the new C2 technology. While I've heard Banana tech is awesome I charge pretty hard and fast and am wondering if the C2 would be a better idea. I've been told C2 is the best of both worlds, Banana and old-style camber and gives a bit more control at high speed and pop than the basis BTX. Anyone have experience yet riding something with the C2? Also, can you get away with a shorter board if you're using BTX? I usually ride a 168 and was looking at the 169 Skunk Ape but see the Dark Series only comes in a 164.

Thanks,

Rhett

You definitely want C2, not the regular BTX.

Have you looked into the Gnu Billy Goat C2 BTX? It comes in a 62, but it's stiff for us bigger guys.

I'm a big guy and it sucks (snow)balls looking for a board!
