    I’ve heard that the skate banana has the most flex, so for butters i would recommend that. I would say 148 or maybe 145 depending on your style of riding. if you like turning better, more control, and spins, then i would go with 145. if u like kind of long carving and bombing hills, go with the 148 or 149.

    Naturally all three think exactly alike..

    Coming from a camber Burton Custom, my banana magic is a bit hard to grab an edge when spinning. I often find myself spinning out on the landing. Can’t tell if my riding has gone to shit or the board doesn’t do me well.

    I wonder which one will be COMFORTABLE at doing Butter, 360 and that kind of trick? I’m thinking about getting one of those sick boards. BTW I’m 5″6 and 110lbs (yeah pretty light) what length of the board should I get between 145, 148, 149, 151N, 152?? THANKS!

    you boardslide on your base not your edge. most have a 2 or 3 degree base bevel so sharp or not magna-traction has nothing to do with rail or boxes it has to do with edge hold on icy or hard conditions wether sharp or detuned.(i pefer detuned you don’t need sharp edges when you have magna.)

    Hey i am wondering what setup would be good for a skate banana. kinda new with bindings, so i dont know if they make any difference

    As long as you detune there should be no problems with Magne-traction catching. The biggest thing you’ll have to get used to is board sliding a rocker camber profile. It doesn’t lock in as easy as regular camber, but once you get used to it you’ll love the looseness and easy spinning on boxes and rails.

    has anybody had problems with the magna traction getting hung up while boardsliding? I have been considering getting one of these for awhile but was wondering how the magnatration will effect boardsliding

    haha well that’s just my opinion, 159 for me when i weighed it all up seemed the best option. I remember sinking too quickly in the pow when i rode a 154 & 156 a few seasons back so those extra cm’s may make all the difference..

    Haha agreed on the psychological warfare, I bought my board at a convention and everyone had different opinions it was such a mental battle. Glad to know I chose correctly!
