Default What should I do?!

Ok I have the choice of either getting a Rome Flag now for cheap, or I can wait until the 08/09 season and buy the lib tech skate banana, which should I do?

I was skeptical at first about the edge hold of the skate banana due to the reversed camber. I was thinking to myself: "Hey, that's old tech! There's a reason why it disappeared." None the less, I had to try it. Well, I learned I was wrong... very wrong. It rides great in all conditions and the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. The camber centralizes the pressure of the edge against the snow between your legs, not underneath you feet. Therefore, if you put too much weight on your back foot through a turn (you can't be smooth all the time), the pressure will be distributed to the middle of the board rather than on one small point at it's tail end, making it harder to slip out. It's obviously also catch free. For powder riding, since the board curves upward, it glides over snow like I glided over your mother last night (nvm, I plowed through her like a bulldozer). Jokes! But Snowolf is right, it does take some getting used to. It's well worth the extra cash, especially if you want to start freestyle because it's even better in the terrain park (the flag is not really a freestyle board).

I guess it's all about personal opinions, personally I love Rome, but I wouldn't mind getting my hands into one of those fancy banana board .

Save your money and get the banana board from Rome, I am sure that board is going to kick ass.

Hey! I never said Rome was anything short of amazing, but that damn banana board took me by surprise. It's true that everyone is going to be "copying" it next year. Then again, Lib Tech didn't invent it either. They made a lot of money off the skate banana, so I give them props.
