Default $1,200 Lib tech board

Right before i left my job selling boards we got one of the new $1,200 lib tech boards, the cygnus. So i guess it replaces the vapor as most expensive board. Anyways, I know they are hand made and signed by the guy who makes them, but seriously why the $1,200 price tag?

Well for the Neversummer Custom made boards I know that they're expensive cause they make it to exactly what you need, same with my Arbor my buddy had one hand-made for him a couple years back and it was pretty tight well worth the cash if you gots it.

As for Mass Manufactured boards that are that expensive I have no freaking clue why they would be that expensive I don't think I would pay more then 550-600 for a new board... ever... I've ridden both a T6 and the new Concept TMS UL which are nice boards... But not worth the price tag IMO.

Yours is custom built to YOUR needs though. I honestly don't think a board is ever worth more than 500-6oo...unless you've got some super crazy tech in it.

I guess if you really like that guys handwriting I wouldn't buy it. You could get 3 nice boards for that much cash I think my 90 Jeep Cherokee is worth about that much lol.

well, if you look at LOW END laptops these days, they cost $600-1k, good ones run for $1500 up.

So I am suprised snowboards, something so much better, are way cheaper than that, even for a high end board.

For the price of a low end laptop, you can get an incredibly high end board, wow.
