Cool banana tech

hi there... I am new in the forum and i would like to ask something..

is it true that, banana tech boards must be about 3 cm shorter than your normal board?

i am thinking to buy a new lib TRS BTX 157 or 159... the width of that boards are almost the same.. its only 2 cm different length...
my weight is about 160-165 lbr (about 74 kg)
what lenght u think is better?

thanks guys and... keep riding!!!

Banana boards can be ridden shorter than a regular camber board.

157 shouldn't give you any problems.

i ride a 152 skate banana and a 155 youth in asia, the shorter length doesnt make a difference but the banana is a lot lighter. to be honest i dont even feel the btx as much as people say, i mean yeah its there and you notice it, but it isnt THAT much different. i think the magnatraction is awesome though.
