Worth the end of season money?

2008 LibTech MC Kink with with 2009 Union Forces for $170?

I'm riding a Sierra Crew now (with Ride EX bindings).

Am curious about the magnetraction and this seems like a pretty good price. Or, is the MC kink so close to the Crew that I am buying one of a pair?

Thanks

Or, any thoughts on the Lib Tech in general?

Lib Tech makes good boards, no doubt. I think they're a little overhyped and overpriced, but they're certainly good boards.

If I'm not mistaken, that board should be traditional camber. I'm definitely not certain about that. If you're looking for a softer, more freestyle oriented traditional cambered board to compliment your Crew, it would fit the bill very well.

The price definitely looks good. Almost too good. If everything is in good shape, I'd jump on it anyway even if I didn't want the board. Hell, I'd keep those Forces and resale the board for the darn near if not the same amount as what I paid for the whole setup. End result - free Union Forces!

I'm riding a 156 Sierra Crew which is right at the edge of the sizing guide (I'm 175).

The Lib Tech is a 155.5 -- if I am going to a softer board (than the Crew) do I want to go bigger? Or at least be more in the weight range?

It'll be fine. 155.5 is fine for a freestyle board at 175.
