Skate Banana 153w or 156w?
I'm undecided between the 153w and 156w Skate Banana, I know normally I would go with the 156w but after reading some reviews I've found that supposedly you can go a little smaller with the Skate Banana and still be good. Plus according to the specs from Lib Tech the 153w is a little bit softer as well.
I'm around 175 lbs, I have a size 12 boot, and I'm mainly a freestyle rider. I usually hit the park or play around on the groomers for most of the day.
I'm coming off a Ride Crush 156w that was a great board but it just didn't have the flex that I was looking for. Also, I think the shape of the Crush added to my disliking of it. The pro-rise rocker combined with the general stiffness of the board made it hard to butter, spin, and press.
What do you guys think for the Skate Banana, 153w or 156w? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
