|PredaClone||I just replaced my old DCs with some K2 Darkos, they seem to have a similar fit and (I don't care what anyone else says) the boa-conda thing is sweet.|

No offense taken. Leo so far has shown me he can give his opinion but yet respect others opinions.

Skate Banana is the most awesome board that exists... until you hop on another good board even within the Lib Tech line.
I'd even rather have a Park Pickle than an SB.
Same with your bindings. I find a lot of Union lovers have not tried their fair share of good bindings. Upgrading from old Drakes to a Union obviously makes Unions seem holy.
Sorry, not knocking your setup. Just the hype behind it
In the end, the SB is a decent board. I'll keep my mouth shut about the Unions though haha.
Me: (on another forum type thing) Anyone jealous of my Proto CT?
Person (several of the same nature): Nope! I have a Lib Tech Skate Banana! Best board ever!
Me: Have you tried a Never Summer?
Person: Nope. I upgraded to the Skate from a Burton Air.
Me: Well, then you really need to try other boards.

Just wait till you try C2...
No seriously, the SB is not a bad board. It just has been a bit over hyped marketing wise. On this forum everybody has tried everything, SB just needs to be put in a proper context. You got an excellent price on the board and enjoy and have fun out there. That's the most important thing.

Thoughts on 2011SkateBanana
Here's a couple of thoughts on the SkateBanana. I finally got more time on this board and i can confidently say that i was worth the money (i spent $354/shipped no tax on the assorted SB). I've read in a lot of different reviews about how this board has issues going at high speed. This past weekend i was up at Mammoth and went on some bomber runs and it seemed to hold up great. I went up to the sierra and was flying past everyone down the hill. I had no issues of any kind. I was getting great pop from this board as well. I was a bit worried having seen sour reviews but in the end, i'm glad i made the purchase. i would recommend this board but i would say that you should demo it a couple times.
One thing i loved was that it was like riding a skateboard (duh... Skatebanana). I had a couple friends tease me about how i went w/ a "cheater" board. I gave them the bird w/ a smile. I work hard and after using the same setup for 6 years, i think i deserve to spoil myself.
BTW i just purchased Force Union bindings and they are amazing.
total upgrade from my 6 year old drake f-60s. Next season, replacing my 6 year old DC Phase Boots.
So if your thinking of getting a SB, go demo it and don't let people's shit talking make you double guess your selection, regardless if you pick the SB or not.
One man's trash is another man's treasure...
