Triple8Sol SB is for the park. It sucks outside of it, not because of BTX, but the way it's applied to this board, as well as being way too soft. I'm rocking a TRS BTX and it's great all around.

I think the rocker is the nicest feature of it. But mtx by itself is extremely nice. Some people don't care for the rocker feel so I can see where your coming from.

The T Rice is just awesome. Every board he puts out is great.

I completely agree with what you are saying here. I demoed the SK8 banana and then the TRS btx. The TRS was what I was looking for because of it stiffer beefier specs. I am a happy camper. If I could afford it? I would have a quiver of lib boards and a SK8 B would be in the rotation.

Lib is really onto something here, and I think this is reflected in other manufacturers RC offerings. I have said it before and I will say it again.... ITS THE FUTURE OF SLIDING on a plank... IMO

oneplankawanka go with the 152 S banana.... you will love it I have no doubt, If you don't you be able to get top resale value...

You won't look back... and may never ever go back to a cambered board... RC is amazing.

He may be able to go with the 148 depending upon stance angles and whether is feet have stopped growing or not?? what kind of angles does he ride?? remember the waist width is measured at the "waist" the center of the board.,

rrntheboyz Do you think a 152 SB is too big for a person 5'4, 110lbs. He primarily rides park but also enjoys free style??? He would get the 148N but the max boot size on that board is a 8.5 and my son wears a 9 boot size!!!!!
