Toomeyct Ok it turns out that I can get a revolver for around the same price as the other boards. So I will most likely go with that. Should I go with the 155 or 158?

Basti In my opinion the Banana was a great board a few years ago when reverse camber was new to the game. If you compare it to the other boards, it just feels outdated. I found it squirrely and overall not very well balanced. It's ok to fool around on it but others (like the Revolver) give you similar or better performance and add a lot of stability.

I haven't ridden the Smokin but from what I've seen, heard and read, it's supposed to be a very good board.

If I may ask, what makes it inferior to the other two boards? Also is the revolver worth the extra hundred over the superpark in your opinion?

Playful board decision time!

I've posted previously about a more flexible board for bigger feet and I've narrowed it down to 3 boards. I would like any advice and pros/cons you have for each board below.

I'm 6'1", 205 lbs. and currently have a Heritage X. Looking for a softer, more flexible board to compliment the heritage.

Libtech Skate Banana 156W - On sale on DOG for ~300. I like the fact that it has magnetraction and I'm assuming its a good bit softer than the heritage. Also nice that its on sale

Smokin' Superpark Wide Clash Rocker 159W - Also on sale at DOG for ~300. Also has magnetraction but a milder implementation from what I understand. This was a recommendation from Argo I think.

Never Summer Revolver 155W or 158W - ~400 on Evo, can't really find it cheaper elsewhere. Similar to my heritage as far as camber profile goes and softer. A little expensive since I can't find it on sale any lower.

So what are the pros and cons of each of these boards and if there are other suggestions, feel free to make them, however I want something that is fairly different than my heritage.

Thanks in advance.
