2011 Lib Tech Skate Banana

This season i'm getting a Skate Banana, 154 cm regular... i was wondering who has ridden this/how it preforms all mountain (park, groomers) especially in the ice coast where i am.
I was also planning on getting Union Forces for my bindings.

just wondering if this is a good set-up

Im new to the sport so not much experience with boards but I bought a 09/10 for this season. I've been out twice this year and will be out this weekend.
It is much softer than my old lib tech, sorry I don't know the model. It gripped much better than my old board in our man made snow.
I liked the flex but I am still not used to it. Once I get some more time on it I can add more info

Negative things I heard about the skate banana:
-Rides sketchy
-Chatter at high speeds
-Can't jump for nothing
-Severely lacks pop
That's pretty much all the cons of the board.

i own a skate banana, and the only thing i find true about what you said is that its a bit sketchy at really high speed. i can really get a great pop out of it since they stiffened it up a bit for 2010. it really all depends on the rider. its still a SICK board i recommend it!

BA-NA-NA. Say it again now BA-NA-NA

have it ever taken big jumps with it? doesn't it ever wash out on the landings? i think many of those cons apply to many reverse camber boards.
