not better different. I have ridden both a lot.

Directional nug,or regular nug?

list the differences here first ( i am not doing your homework for you), then we can talk specifics.

Honestly I don't think either are worth the money you pay. The Nug can do everything it says except pow, there is not tech in the world that makes a board with that much less surface area float like something bigger. Just not gonna happen. Other than that its an OK park board and handles average around the mountain. For $400 You're better off with a Signal Park Flat, Flow Verve, Flow Era, Bataleon Whatever, Salomon Drift Rocker...

Less $$ than the Banana you'll get a better board with the list I've already proposed plus the Arbor Westmark, Blacklist, Burton Hero, Nitro Pro One Offs, Bataleon ET...

Angry did not ride it on a Pow day and he gave it a great review, if you don't read his conclusion. Great little deck IMO.

I believe Dave Downing, if for the only HUGE fact that Dave has no marketing reason to back the Nug, it is his personal stick. Yeah, I know he is with AG, but his marketing potential is not try big. I also don't see him lying, ever.

Hero retails $450 Banana $490. Not much, but still.

I talked to BA about the Nug. And I agreed that it does as advertised. But I don't care what anyone says, physics is physics and if you don't have the surface area under you, you don't float.

Basically, why pay $400 for a board that is designed to ride everywhere, but can't ride pow? There are just as good of options out there that you don't downsize so they'll still kill pow. Get Westmark or Blacklist and you get everything the Nug offers, and pow ability. The lower swing weight is cool I guess, but it's not necessary.

If Dave Downing says it can ride in 3feet plus of pow at Mammoth, maybe there is some disconnect. Have you ridden one? In Pow? Dave is not super Human.

I have seen some kids up in MT ridding the NUG on a 2foot pow day. They were from Hood and said the difference in snow was huge. They did want a big board for the light pow of MT. They said the Nug was amazing in out west mash potatoes. That is not to say they were not killing it, they were and on such a small board. The really wide board has a bit of surface area.

here is JG's explanation, he is the head board designer at Burton.

can someone imbed? Can we embed here?
