Skate Banana Vs. Rome Agent..

Which one would you go with and why? These are the two boards I am looking into right now. Is the Skate Banana and Agent for more of an advanced rider? Thanks

If you have to ask you aren't an "advanced" rider.

Anyways to me they both suck. BTX tech is wack and fails miserably and the agent just keeps getting softer and softer and softer year after year.

I'm a pretty good cruiser and most of time this next season is going to be spent in the park.. I was wanting a board that I could use as an all mountain but could really excell in the park. I could sacrifice some chatter if I got a really good park board to learn on.. One more thing.. Would you recomend taking freestyle lessons or just hooking up with a buddy? I get free lessons at Copper too. Thanks

Sounds good! How could I demo the banana? I need a new board before I go to Copper. I just got rid of my Forum Recon.

I rode the banana and often thought I was going to die. As soon as I took off on a bigger hit I got the feeling that it just wasn't going to end well. I like having solid edges to set and land on for spinning and jumps. Yes it's hard to catch the edges but you need to be able to catch them alot of the time to stop you washing out the spin. I can see the rocker tech being ok for beginners, as it's harder for them to catch the edge, but for me I need to be able to "catch" my edges.

Plus the construction of alot of the gnu/lib boards seems to leave the tips and tail especially exposed for delams, I rode my buddys for a couple of weeks when my board got jacked and the tail and nose delammed in the same way from not alot of impact. I would expect a board orientated around jibbing to take some abuse to be honest.
