i havent heard the hate? delams in year one,seems to be better now thats about it.. its soft, magnetraction is really sticky....
i think for the money there are better boards out now...

neversummers evo r
burton hero
stepchild jibstick
k2 www
rome postermania 1985
capita horrorscope

all boards i would take over the banana, either because they are better boards, or as good or nearly as good for way less money..

still a very very nice board, dont get me wrong..

Great board. Butters easily and good for rails, but doesn't really do to well on jumps.

well i'm a park rat, riding a burton dominant. i like the fact that how the edges of the board kinda curl up makes it so you cant catch an edge, but you can also rip through ice due to the magnetraction. thats appealing to me.

Technine, why do you say it doesnt do well on jumps?

it is not good on jumps like any board of its style..it has a very soft tip and tail, not too much pop making landings more difficult. this is the main reason i wouldnt buy it. if you want a good rocker for jumping look at the travis rice, trs, or postermania 1985...
