Default Nitro Swindle Vs Skate Banana

I know they're different. Just thinkin of giving up the swindle for a Banana, or something the like.
Wanna know your thoughts. Would it be worthwhile. Or should I stick with the swindle.

Cheers.

I personally ride a skate banana and I have never looked back. The magnetraction and BTX core of this board makes it a very easy and fun board to ride. I have ridden ROME Artifact and Burton dominant and this new LibTech board is a whole new world when it came down to pop and edging on the packed ice trails we have here in the lower east but, then again this all just my 2 cents.

Ryan,

If you like magne and believe their bullshit about not wrapping there edges then go for it. Oh and you also have to realize that you can get a Parkstar, Darkstar, Rook, Machete, DH, Kink, Draft, Westmark, Grip, Indoor FK, and Horrorscope all for cheaper than a Banana. Basically I think the Nanner is overpriced by about $80

I like riding my nanner lol and YES the magnetraction is most definitely worth the extra 80 I have never had a board that has had such great response. Witht he crappy packed snow and ice trails we have here in the lower east the magnetraction makes a big difference.

Sure, but again, the Westmark is cheaper and has griptech. Two bumps instead of seven thereby solving the hooky nature of magne.

I am glad you like your SB. Honest. I have friends that really liked theirs. Its just my opinion that if you have all thats available, available to you, there are better boards for cheaper.

Then again as far as magne goes, I live in CO. I don't need it. Its overkill here IMO.

i ride a swindle. and have ridden the banana.
i choose the swindle (personally) because the "railkiller" edges. theyre huge and i break regular edges.it is zero camber easy presses but some pop. also the thing is light. plus 2 year warranty.

SB feels heavy. but has magna.

Well magne isn't for everyone. I hated it. It was just too much for me.

Im gonna just say that banana is sick
if you are worried about it catching up, try another lib/gnu board that has a toned down magna, like a box scratcher or street series
the street series is really a great all around board geared towards park
magna really does work!
