So I guess I should correct myself. I have been messing with my board for a quick trip to the slopes to see if I still dislike it. I found that its a ride Yukon 164. It is apparently the wide version of a ride timeless. That's about all I found by googling a bit. It's an 2005 model it looks like by image search. Apparently intended for powder and free ride and supposed to be stuff but by what standards I don't know, nor do I know how it compares to what I've been looking at online.
Still want to get something new, but I ride so seldom anymore that I'm not in a huge rush. I may wait for the big discounts in the offseason.
If me correcting this makes you guys think of what I may like better please chime in again, but you all have been a great help regardless. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure it all depends on what you prefer, its a mental thing more than anything. I only started recently, on a Ride camber board. I was pretty crap at the time but didn't like that board much, then got a rocker and loved it.
Rockers are a lot more playful, always wanting to turn so I find them to switch edges really quickly. I also seem to find way more edge grip on a rocker, but that could be the magna-traction?
I've got a TRS now, not had any problems with stability (but it does turn so easily you can trip yourself up), couldn't be happier with it. But I never really spent much time on camber boards...

|Sudden_Death||Jones Mountain Twin would be a good one to look at. Arbor's full rocker boards hold great on east coat hardpack too if you were open to a full rocker board. You could look at the Coda or Element. Griptech works just as well as magnetraction I have found. You can also look at Smokin', they are similar profiles to Lib and have magnetraction as well. I have ridden a couple of their flat camber boards but have heard great things about the KT22.|

I see why Attack Banana may not be the best...guess I shoulda seen lib tech's site before asking that. I haven't been on their site in particular yet and it's nice that they have each of their board's diagramed. They do have couple that are ideal for hardpack/ice it says...btx enhanced banana. They're still called banana though. Is that just their name? It's just a combination of rocker/camber with a special name, isn't it? Or is all their banana stuff different somehow? Just trying to figure out what boards to rule out...
Neversummer's seem nice.
Some Jones boards?
Ride Machete GT

Go on Libtechs site and check out the diagram/profile of attack banana. That is banana. I had one and sold it. Went back to a more camber profile.

they weren't so much helping me determine what combination of camber and rocker is better for me, but basically pointing out a couple boards they like...attack banana, ride machete gt, and gnu rider's choice.
