159 Attack Banana or 161 NS Cobra

Hey gang. I am fortunate enough to ride alot of powder here in Alberta. I currently have last years 159 Libtech Attack Banana. I am 40 years old, 170-175 pounds and 6 feet tall - really good intermediate rider. I have heard so many good things about the Cobra on the forum. Do you think the 161 Cobra would be better on certain conditions? Or would I not notice much of a difference?

Completely different sticks. Attack Banana is freestyle-ly aggressive twin. Cobra is a freeride directional deck. It is not so much a question which one is better, but which one suits your riding style

Actually I think it's a fair comparison, that I went through this pre-season too. Attack Banana will prob be a little stiffer and is a twin, but the Cobra has very little setback. Also EC2 is very similar to RC. I have a Cobra on the way, but I would love to get an AB for comparison at some point if I could find a good enough deal on one.
