banana vs triple base tech

im curious as to which tech is actually better? its obvious bataleon doesnt have the dollars that lib tech has, but looking at both ideas, it seems as if bataleons TBT is actually the better advancement? maybe together or a tbt magnetraction banana would just be the greatest thing evarz lolz? seriously though, whats your opinions for the fortunate enough of you that have tried both, or just tried TBT. no need to hear rocker boarders opinions, everyones already heard it..tbt seems like a great idea to me for whatever reason..
one easy bonus would be more pop then any other board..

oh for sure, but if you had to pick one to have which one would it be? the thing is though that they are both fairly new and much different designs in a snowboard, thats why a put the 2 together..

I personally think the TBT is an aweful idea. It feels cool because its real surfy on the snow but when you get on boxes and rails you'll eat shit on nose and tail slides and presses. Not saying you'll necessarily eat shit but it is really hard to balance on the rounded part of the base and you slip out really easy. I prefer a flat base. But I wouldnt buy the banana either. They flex way too much and I dont care what anyone says they dont have the pop that reg boards do. Anyone who says they do has just bought into the idea and are in denial.

I guess if you rode it a lot you'd get used to it. I dont know, on my tail presses I couldnt balance so I could never spin out of them and its really easy on a flat base. It just really frustrated me so I traded it in. I didn't like it at all.
