Default banana magic 154 or 157?

I am 5'10 163lbs but will probably be closer to 170lbs by the time the season starts. I am wondering if I should get the 154 or 157 banana magic. I usually ride a 157 but thought it would be nice to have the 154 which is just a tad softer. What do you guys think?

Buy my '10 Banana Magic 157. Only ridden 4x.

It really is an awesome board - carves like hell.

That said, I'm 5'5" or 5'6", around 160 (150 when in better shape) and I feel its just a tad too heavy/big for me.

In no way is it too big for me to ride, it is actually a GREAT freeriding board, but I want to start getting into freestyle a little more so I'd like something a little more lightweght/maneuverable.

How about you buy the 154 and trade me for my 157?

I'm 6'3 200lbs and thought the 159W Skate banana was too heavy/big for me. I would go with 154.

Yeah, but to be fair, you bought the completely wrong board for what you were looking for.

If you're gonna ride the whole mountain, get the 57. if you strictly do park, get a skate banana 154.

True. It was a poor mistake in judgement. But I don't know why you would want to use a Banana for All-Mtn.

Actually, the skate banana is an excellent all mountain board. It's really fun in the powder and is quite good at carving on groomers as well as buttering around and popping off natural features.

Youre more than welcome to buy mine lol. I agree with buttering, disagree with carving. Holds edge nice though, but really shaky at high speeds.
