Go with the MLF!

Although you'll want something softer. Like the PBJ. Or just get the SB like everyone else.

The center of the board is soft so it's nice on rails and random jibs. The nose and the tail this year are harder so there is pop.

I googled skate banana reviews before I got mine and pop wasn't an issue with anyone else.

It's probably worth you trying a reverse camber board to see if its for you. So many people hail it as the king of all tech but for alot of people, including me it's not for them. If I rode just rails and jibs I would totally go for it but I don't like taking them off of the floor. I don't feel stable enough. I like the Bataleon TBT because you get camber but also some benefits of reverse camber. However I would also recommend trying TBT if you thought about it as well as it's also not for everyone.

So not saying RC is bad, far from it but give it a try first and see how you get on with it.
