I have the banana and love it. My girl has a GNU BTX with MTX as well and banana tech and she loves it was well. She's still learning but we both noticed that these boards are pretty stable on ice patches.

BTX is (see post below), MTX is the wavy sidecut that helps on ice.

BTX is not really reverse camber, its rocker + magne traction. Lib Tech's reverse camber is called C2.

Reverse camber and rocker are the same thing, just two different terms. BTX has reverse camber between the feet and flat underneath the bindings with MTX and C2 is reverse camber between the feet and camber underneath the bindings with MTX as well.

I just got the skate banana yesterday for a hell of a price. I didnt really care for the banana since i have a 09' ns evo r but, the price was just too good to pass up.

i rode it for the first time today in about almost a foot of fresh pow (it snowed till 5pm today at my local mnt and i was there for first chair).

I have the 156 banana and it floats like a boat in pow. i was quite impressed with the banana it rode really well and held on great even over ice.

i heard raves and bs from so many people that i wasnt expecting much before i got out to ride it today. i would have to rate it a close tie, almost as good compared to my evo.

i really love this board though, the banana rides somewhat catchy but you get used to it and youll slash pow or haul some ass through the grooms. it popped quite well for me considering some members on this forum states its hard to pop and ollie on, so untrue.

my ratings are high for this board. likei said before i love the banana.
