Sure, there might (and many cases there are) better choices. But the Skate Banana is neither strictly a park board or a noodle.
And your ad hominem attacks adds nothing to the discussion.

If you're going to be spending a lot of time in the park hitting jibs then jump on the contact. That's the go to for a lot of park guys on Union. The Force is a pretty burly all mountain binding, that will be a fair bit stiffer than the contact. A buddy of mine rides for a local shop and he's got the GNU Park Pickle and paired it with some Forces... he absolutely loves it.

I'm more of an Atlas guy myself. I put in a fair number of days every year, most of them in the park. It's Rices go to as well. You pay a bit more of a premium, but well worth it IMO. Both the bindings I mentioned will allow you're board to flex fairly true underfoot, without any deadzones, especially the contact.

I'd pair it with a pair of Union bindings, Contact Pros, Forces, Atlas. I've been riding Union for several years and they are really durable and comfortable.
I agree, you can ride any board on any terrain.

I switched boards with a buddy who snapped his @ the binding of the nose.
We were way far out of bounds. That was about the only option other than walking in waist deep powder.
He rides regular, I ride goofy.
I just turned it around so the the break was @ the back.
Definitely not easy, but now I believe I could ride a 2x6 if I had to.

My 2x12 door header seems to ride alright.
Maybe I'll throw some binders on it for shits & giggles.

That's a powder nose if I ever seen one.
I guess you could call that a tapered tail too?

chad23 If you wanna be really different try some new switchback bindings. Just for a different look, plus you can customize the colors yourself.

Triple8Sol The Skate Banana is great for most intermediate riders, and the majority of East Coast terrain from what I've seen lol. Try some Flux DS30's

ThunderChunky Mainly a jib and pow board. Find bindings that are relative to that.

walove the skatebanana is a fun board all over the whole mountain and i've rode lots of big lines with it. its quick turning and good edge hold make it great for steep narrow stuff. Where i ride doesnt really have a park worth riding and my banana gets lots of use.

is it ideal for highspeed carving through bumpy snow, not really.
