Uh apparently the lib tech banana tech board is over hyped and garbage. I know for a fact though that the forum seeker is a great all mountain large jump board. Up to you of course but thats my two cents.

^ Sierra is owned by a shop, what do shop people do? They sell products and get free products from reps. That store is a fucking stupid city store with dumb ass people that cling to everything their sales people sell. I'd love to see how those guys do working in a real shop in the mountains, they'd get eaten alive.

God I fucking hate box stores.

First off, Lib Tech's Skate Banana is definitely not over-hyped garbage. If it was than it would have fallen by the wayside. Instead we see several companies including K2 and DC releasing similar technologies.

ianbass, between the Seeker and the Anthem I would say go with the Seeker. It's pretty much for exactly the type of riding you describe and sounds to stiff to be much use on rails.

In terms of any other boards available, I would say take a look at the Lib Tech and GNU line. One thing that will definitely help you in your quest for turns and air is magnetraction.

All Lib Tech and GNU boards this year feature magnetraction, as well as the option of Banana Technology. The reverse camber does not sacrifice the pop and performance of the board on jumps and pipe, but it will take a bit of getting used to.

Again Banana Technology is optional on all Lib Tech and GNU boards except for the Skate Banana, which is probably a bit to soft for your needs anyway.

I would head to Lib Tech's website and read up on what they offer.
