Default Skate Banana for jibs?

Just wanted to get some opinions on this. I was planning on getting a www with the rocker this year just for jibbing and buttering around at the local mountains but now the season is fast approaching and I have some extra cash so I have a few trips out west planned so now I'm setting my sights on something a little more versatile like the skate banana. Just wanted to get some takes on how the skate banana is at jibbing/jumps. Obviously its not a ridiculous noodle like the www, but how is it?

Its a jib board don't expect it to be super grand in pipe, anything with a transition, and jumps. The tips are just too soft.

I'd maybe put it between a darkstar and standard www for softness rating. It will still be a super jib board, but handle groomers with a little more control than the rocker weapon. If you want jib and more, Neversummer Evo-R.

Thanks. I was really more interested in what people thought of the skate banana for jibbing since I guess I'd have to choose one or the other.
