From your description of what kind of riding you want to do and what you want out of the board I definitely wouldn't pick anything other than a Rad Air Tanker 210.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Not the 222? I thought his post sounded more like 222 to me...

Thanks guys i'll check it out. The reason i was looking was because right now im riding a 154 rome garage rocker 154. Im looking to change things up a bit and go up to a 156. The banana is my main choice right now based purey on the magna traction

Umm, since you seemed to have missed it, we are all being sarcastic.

You haven't given any explanation of what you want the board for.
Terrain, type of riding, skill level??

But yah, you should get the Rad Air.

If that's the type of riding you want to do why are you looking at looser park boards?

You'd benefit from something directional, unless you ride a lot of switch.

Indeed.
Wouldn't you want something for charging with rockered tips to help in the light pow?
Per bseracka's post - a stiffer twin or directional twin if you do ride a good bit of switch, or fully directional if you don't.
