Lib-Tech Snowboard bases..

Just wondered if you guys could clear this up for me...

What the hell is a Eco Sub TnT Base?

Is that a sintered base or whats the story?

TnT bases on Lib Tech boards are extruded.

Most over-priced boards in the industry...

I don't get this at all, my Lib Tech was the least expensive board in my quiver.

Apples with oranges though eh? On Evo right now Flow Viper $300 - Skate Banana $490. I don't know what other boards you have but the Lib is surely the most poorly constructed.

Unless you're an engineer and have analyzed the way each snowboard brand is manufactured and constructed, all you have is your opinion, which is worth about as much as a pile of dog shit.

My team of scientists spent months analysing the entire Lib range and came back with 2 major findings:

Extruded bases.

No metal edge in the tip and tail.

Now get the fuck out of here before I tear you a new arsehole.

First off, i'm not just some mervin fanboy. I also have boards from Omatic, Echelon, Burton, Capita and Prior currently in the quiver.

Anyway, I got my Billy Goat and Jamie Lynn FunDamnMental for a combined 585 bucks if that is too much money for a couple of pretty awesome boards maybe you need a better job or a cheaper hobby.

My team of experts have found that neither board has had an issue from not having metal on the tip and tail. My friends "high end" board from another made in the USA manufacturer, which cost more than either of my Mervins msrp, split to the core when he tapped something in the woods. He didn't crash or even realize that he hit anything until he noticed the nose was split and there was a chunk of wood stuck in it. Lots of good that little extra piece of metal did...

As for the bases, I won't argue that it's not the fastest base on the Lib but the base on the Billy Goat is fast and the Lib isn't really a hell of a lot slower.

Would you like to tear me a new ass hole too hot shot?

Taco, I have no beef with you. Whatsoever. Please read the post before mine and please leave my backside alone.

You may not have had an issue but can you honesty say that you think that no edge is just as resilient as full edge?
