Default Average rider, first purchase, banana tech or no?

I have been snowboarding a few times (used to skiing) and can get down the mountain pretty good now. I'm looking to purchase my first board and was wondering if the lib tech banana boards would be good for me?

I'm looking to spend about 350 and there are a few boards at my shop 40% off that put them in this area along with some of the banana tech boards.

Thanks for any input

Tried to edit my msg but got an error.

I'm mostly all mountain with some small jumps and flat grinds, no thin rails or half pipe.

i think its a great idea. i bought a gnu park pickle after 3-4 day of snowboarding. its slightly stiffer than a skate banana which makes it great for park and all-mountain.

look into lib-tech boards, you wont be disappointed.

Yes! I was hoping it was going to be that video!

For all mountain use, I think there's a lot better options out there than banana tech. I think both Never Summer's rocker and Capita's flat kick are both better for all mountain.

If you want a Lib Tech, go for a TRS if you want all mountain.

The Park Pickle is a better option for all mountain than most bananas. Since you said less than $350, how about $50?
