Nivek, the Attack Banana is stiffer than the TRS, Proto, and certainly stiffer than an Era. The Attack Banana was one of the last boards I jumped on this year, and switched out with a Proto, which was definitely more playful and flexier.
The Attack Banana is just a hair under the Lib Tech Jamie Lynn. Just because it has Banana in the name, doesn't mean it folds in half like the Skate Banana.
Haven't ridden a Magic yet, but flexed both in a shop (which sometimes never tells the story), and the Attack was stiffer.
Just checked the website to confirm my feeling.
If you look at the 156, and start to compare to others, they rate the Attack Banana at a 6.5, Jamie Lynn at a 6.5, Banana Magic at a 6, and TRS at a 6.
Now, all that shit goes out the window, because based on flex from least to greatest:
Skate Banana - TRS - Banana Magic - Attack Banana - Jamie Lynn - Travis Rice - Dark Series
Either way, riding the Attack Banana, it was stiffer than a Forum Double Dog Destroyer, Arbor Coda, Never Summer Proto, etc etc. I found it very similar to a Never Summer SL, yet a true twin instead.
Bottom line, I'd call it a past the middle of the road stiffness all mountain board.
BTW, based on the original posters description, I'd lean toward the TRS out of the Lib Line, Proto out of NS (maybe even Evo). 60% park with jibbing included? TRS would be a really good fit. Smokin Superpark was a better version of the TRS to me.
I'm almost the same stats as the original poster. Grab the 56 TRS / 55 Smokin Superpark / 55 Proto. You don't need a 58 at your weight, especially if you want to be more in the park than on the mountain.
