alright, so whats the verdict? is the banana a good board, worth getting?

oh and btw, my best friend had about an hour conversation with travis rice, and travis said EVERYONE needs a banana. i dunno, but i might trust that guy.

i'm a fan of the MTX+BTX. going fast or heading down difficult terrain is kinda unnerving at times though (to be expected). i'm not that good so maybe a combination of the two.

i like it though, my favorite board.

well im sure travis is putting the board into a "quiver" of boards whereas everyone should have the option because they are not better for everything...

The skate banana is a sick board pick it up for sure. It's actually pretty decent off of jumps, and has a lot of pop, due to the stiffed nose and tail. I have had no problems stability wise on it either, as long as you ride a pretty wide stance on it so the nose and tail can be engaged. Also don't listen to peoples opinions on this board if they have just demoed it or rode it for a day or two, it really takes some time to get use to, when I first started riding mine I wasn't to sure about it, but now I love it. The only catch is that it delams/chips really easily, because of the lack of fully wrapped steel edges.

Rome Artifact 1985 Reverse Camber.

I love it. More than life.

Ive rode a banana once. There's a little difference I noticed in flex. But besides that from what I hear they're pretty much almost close to the same thing. FROM WHAT I HEAR.

I almost got the GNU DK Vertighoul with the B tech, but I thought the Rome fit me more style wise.

i will not doubt that its a great board at all, because i believe it is probably.
nor have i rode the 1985, but they should ride very very different. they are not even close tech wise, the banana cambers in the middle, the artifact at the bindings. the artifact is quite a bit softer, and theres no magnetraction.

It took me a few runs to get the hang of my capita horrorscope. Then about another day to get good on boxes and rails. That was prob just because i was scared of catching an edge.

i just took my first ride on my k2 www rocker and the ride was heavenly. i love it. Nice ollies, yet holds presses nicely. The park was closed when i rodwe it so i was mainly riding some natural jumps and pow. I was coming from a burton punch 145 which had no pop, so i dont know how valid my info was, but i was impressed nonetheless
