Cool Lib Tech TRS BTX or Skate Banana ?

Hey,

I'am in the market for a new board, and am pretty settled on either a Lib Tech TRS BTX or a Skate Banana, but just can not make up my mind between the two. I do a mixture of riding, from park to cruising, to a touch of powder when I get the chance. I consider myself at a intermediate skill level. I am about 1.8m tall, and about 73kg. The general impression I get from my extensive research is that the Skate Banana is the all round fun board, but the btx is a bit stiffer, and will help you become a better boarder. Any extra input from anyone who has tried both boards would be fantastic !

Thanks a lot guys !
Paul

Paulh,
I have a Lib TRS BTX 154 and I'm 5'8" and 140 pounds (I'll let you convert to metric). It took me several times on the
board to find all the sweet spots on it but it is really a versatile board. I have done a little of everything on it
except the half pipe and it's been a solid performer. Stable when you need it at speed but flexible enough to cruise
the mountain. I have never ridden a Skate Banana but from what I understand it is a park oriented board that is much
flexier than the TRS. I too was a solid intermediate that advanced quickly with the TRS. I don't think you'd be
dissapointed with the TRS.
