Default Rare Skate Banana with C2.....

Bought this a few years ago and was told it was made for one of Lib Tech's riders (not sure this is true or not). However, it's the only Skate Banana I've seen with C2 and assume this is the year before they came out with the TRS with C2, not sure.

Just curious if anyone has seen one.......

What size is it? My understanding is that they had a little bit of camber in their first Skate Bananas and TRSes for the bigger ones without it being labeled C2. I think they might still make the bigger skate bananas with a bit of camber in them.

156....Might end up selling it as I have too many boards. I imagine it behaves and rides like a TRS. It tracks better and isn't as loose as my 156 banana nor banana magic, but it's a skate and flex is the same.

Varying press temperature is all that is. It looks more pronounced cause of the core profiling.

Skate Banana's have never had camber in the tips regardless of what they'll tell you. Any camber you'll find just means the presses top form was hotter than the bottom when it went in, so the base cooled faster than the top. Full rocker got touted as too loose, and they'd been marketing the Banana as do everything. Start telling people there is micro camber in the tips, get the positive hype back.
