Thanks for the tip, I'll check the prices and availability. I doubt the "directional twin" thing will be an issue, it's not like I ride switch half of the time or make big switch landings or anything, so I guess it'll do fine...Right??
A couple others I spotted:
Drake DF2: Haven't found too many reviews or tests yet.
Nitro Subzero Hotwing: Came across a couple really negative reviews of Nitro's 'gulwing' profile.
Forum Youngblood Doubledog: Seems to be more park oriented, not sure if it's perfect for hardpack/pow.
Smokin superparkForum Destroyer Doubledog.
Apo MTD: It's supposed to be an allmountain freestyle board, but it only gets a 5 and a 6 on Apo's own carving and powder scale.
They all happen to be available in 152/153cm on a webshop I found, last year's models, for about half of what a new libtech would cost me.
What's the general consensus about these brands and models? Anyone any experience with any of those? If it's not agains forum rules, I think I'm gonna make a new thread of this after all, I've sorta derailed...:s
