Default Attack Banana vs. Ride buckwild

I need a new board this year and im looking for something that will be great all around and in the park. I was perviously riding the skate banana and thats primarily why im looking at the attack banana. The buckwild is around the same flex as the banana but has a flat rocker. Hard choice, need some help. Other board suggestions are welcomed.

If you can swing the attack banana I think you'll thoroughly enjoy it. Its more all mountain then the ride buckwild, which is good because you already have a park board (skate banana).

ya it would be nice having two bananas, one for park and one for everything, but lib-techs are pretty expensive and the attack banana is $100 more than the ride.

Buckwild is stiffer than the Banana. Attack Banana is more akin to a Highlife. You may want to rethink your choices.

What didn't you like about the Naner?

Try the 2013 YES Greats, Rome Mod Rocker, Arbor Coda, or Flow Shifty. As well as the Ride Buckwild.

You will most likely love the Blacklist. But if you are very interested in charging the Mod Rocker is a more aggressive board. BA reviewed that too.

probably just gonna go with the blacklist because it will do better in the park but my shop has the attack banana and gnu riders choice, both of them are perfect for me.
