New Jib Board Suggestions
Ok, so i recently just got my skate banana which i'm proud to own. But i don't want to totally detune my edges for rails. And, i feel as though theres not enough pop to satisfy the feel of jibbing. Comparing to strong loaded camber boards of a lib tech trs and a ride kink, I miss the feel of springy pop for rails, and not having to worry about ripping my edges to as blunt as a wine bottle. For i have my inner jib-kid that has to come of the shell during a few moments in the season and/or day.
Specifics for sugestions
-Standard Camber (preferably strong)
-Mildly cheap (between 250 and 400 bucks)
-around 152cm (Preferably lower than 154)
Boards allready in thought (Ill try to constantly edit this after more and more suggestions)
Questions of mine:
-Im used to riding noodle soft boards (I guess the banana isnt, but the pre-flex kinda makes up for it), but if i were to purchase a smaller board, say 147. Would it be a good idea to find it as a stiffer board due to pop (and light weight because its smaller)?
-Since sintered bases are stronger, wouldn't it be best to prefer a sintered base over an extruded to the lesser susceptibility to strong gashes?
I forgot to mention that my brother and I are sharing this as a street/jib board. We both weigh 150 lbs and are 10.5" sized boots. But im sure that doesnt matter a significant amount to be considered with your suggestions.
Will probably Equip this board with Some Union Forces or Data's. Binding suggestions would also be helpful.
