burton fix vs. libtech skate banana

basically, i need to know out of these 2 boards which one would be better for me.
or, which one is better in general.
im a park rat, i spend all day on rails and jumps.
idk which board is better. skate banana is a little stiffer than id like, but fix is can also get wobbly at high speeds, so i hear.
the best thing would be an opinion from somebody who has ridden both boards.
thanks alot, alex

Rome Artifact 1985 is what you're after. Skate Banana is just a marketing gimmick, nothing special. And Burtons RC boards just aren't that great either. Buy a board for the ride, not for the brand name on it

I've ridden both. Fix is pure crap it really doesn't do anything great at all. It's just sort of there. Skate banana isn't stiffer it's about the same flex but the fact it's reversed between the feet changes the ride. Honestly man if you're looking for a jib/jump board go look at something else like the new K2 Believer with flatline, k2 jibpan, never summer evo, salomon grip to name a few.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

friend has the influence, not really a fan. its nothing special to me.
and the artifact, i dont wanna be another tool with live nude girls on the bottom of my board to be completely honest.
i mean after all, im one of the only ones left in the park without that board.
thanks anyway though,

you know you're limiting yourself to entry-level jibsticks if you want something softer than the sb

Well just so you know where I'm at, I was riding a dom that was really soft. I could throw 3s and 5s both ways pretty consistantly on it too. Idk I thought I wanted something soft because that's what I'm used too. I'm not trying to limit myself, if a stiffer board will let me progress, I'm open to it.

no one can say what one you will like more. all you get in these kind of threads are a bunch of stupid suggestions that don't mean anything. burton is crap. my friend likes his evo. my dad hated his influence. get a rome. whatever blah.
