Huh, I thought the Banana and Gyrator came out the same year, I guess K2 just copied Lib, even though the Gyrator was designed completely different... Oh and another Mervin "innovation" C2... wierd, cause I thought NS did that a year ago... Park Pickle with the deeper heelside sidecut-My buddy has been riding Santa Cruz's with that for the past 4 years or so, Mervin did not invent that.
Mervins are heavy, they delam, and generally are shite. Congratulations on buying the board everyone else owns. Hype, Rice, and Kass, thats what sells Mervin.
Oh and good for you for only buying "high end" boards. Cause boards like the Horrorscope, Stairmaster, WWW, Wigglestick, Swindle, Artifact, Everything Sucks, Kink, Draft, Quiver Killer, Crush, Drift, Scallywag, or the Era (to name a few) are all pieces of shite that are not worth buying.
Now, we could argue this topic forever, get this thread closed because of it, OR I'll shut up and you can keep your "absolutes" to yourself.
You have your opinions, the rest of us have ours. But thats all they are, OPINIONS.
So, your decision.
