I love the Banana. Just got one last week on sale for 20% off, couldn't pass up the deal. Tested it out for the first time today, and I'm blown away.. definitely the best investment I've made in a long time. The conditions were icy as hell, and I'm in shock how much grip this thing has. I've carved down what essentially looked like a skating rink and it hasn't slipped once. I wouldn't even dare try that with my old board. Landing jumps felt really solid too, even with the icy conditions.
I just wish Lib Tech had a less loud color scheme available. Don't get me wrong, I think the board looks sick, but that bright yellow/green top and the huge "Skate Banana" lettering on the bottom gets so much attention it's ridiculous. I'm not sure if I'll ever want to leave the board unattended lol
