elambz I rode my buddy's 08/09 Skate Bananer this past weekend and its also a 152. With my 10.5 DC Phases I had no trouble with toe drag. Medium Union bindings set a -15 -15.

Reviews on my two boards: Skate nanner 08/09 and Nitro Team 07/08

08/09 Lib Tech Skate Banana 152 w/ Ride Team DFC SPis Large Bindings
Luckily no toe drag! With a size ten boot you cut it very close with this setup, anything smaller than a ten and your golden. The Banana is amazing very noodley but responsive it's a weird but enjoyable combo. Great in powder, the twin idea they advertise does not really make you float in pow though you still have to kill your legs and lean back a little. Magne Traction I thought sucked until I rode straight ice and I now love Magne Traction! Incredible amount of pop on this board as well thanks to the rocker tech. The board is surprisingly fast, and it is a 152. It seems faster than my Nitro Team but then again I have gotten wayyy better at waxing this season than last.

07/08 Nitro Team (not wide)157 w/ Ride Deltas and DFC SPis both large.
This board was my first non-seasonal rental since I stopped growing. I loved this board tons of stability because it was a 157 of course. Fast but I have had problems with flats and small hills even when I got store waxes. Mad amount of pop I agree it compares with the Custom, I demoed a 154 Custom and it felt the exact same. 157 is not a good park size at all even though I did get some great pop off some gap jumps last season.

Hope this helps! If I could go back and buy another board I'd like to try the Burton X8, K2 Darkstar, and DC's lineup. I would definitely buy another Banana though too!
