Need a replacement for Skate Banana
 
hHy guys I am looking to upgrade my board finally I have had mine for a few years now and was not sure what to get. I am 5'10 175 pounds and I ride a Lib tech Skate Banana 154 and union force bindings XL right now. I want something soft like my Skate banana, but maybe something with rocker and camber. I'll list the the boards below I have been looking at

Never Summer EVO
Smokin Buck Ferton

Not sure what size I should get because I was told when a board has blunted tips it changes the size of what you would normally ride. Also please feel free to add any other boards you feel maybe just as good or maybe cheaper.

Thanks,
Ryan

those are both killer boards and you should get about a 154 in both but a little less wouldn't hurt.

the only other board that i could recommend in a similar quality for cheaper would be the signal park flat or omni.

So Signal makes a good board?

Yes, I do like my banana, but very disppointed in the quality of the board for what you pay. Is the TRS as flexible as the banana?

The flex of both the and the Skate Banana and TRS are very similar, if not the same. However, they are both around the same price and I don't think the build quality is any different between the two models.

Signal makes some really cool boards. while you dont get as much tech as the smokin or NS decks, they are a bit cheaper. I think they use the same durasurf sintered base material as NS on every board which is cool. The rocker series are super noodly, the park serries are a little stiffer and the omni is about a 5-6/10.

Good, solidly made decks but you get what you pay for from NS and Smokin

Yeah, I really think im going to go with Smokin or NS which ever I can get cheapest at the end of the season. Can anyone give me info on how to decide what size to get when buying a blunted tip snowbaord like the EVO and Buck ferton? Do I buy longer then usual or shorter?

Riley212 01-24-2012 12:13 PM

shorter than usual, the effective edge will be longer compared to the over all length of the board letting you use a shorter board. i would still go with the 154 though to fit your feet
