Unhappy ever do something you regret? too stiff =(

okay, i bought an '06 lib tech dark series on an impulse kinda. i wanted to get a park board and it was advertised as a park board but when i got it, it was pretty stiff (in my opinion).

i wanted a new board to learn presses and butters and stuff like that. would this still be okay?

damn... just should've gotten a rome agent haha.

i bought a rome artifact for fucking about on, when the snow was crappy and i hated it. i was gutted, the board was so soft the nose would fold and kill any momentum and just be out right hard work to ride with.

this year tho, and despite the snow being better but still bullet proof, i took out the artifact with low expectations and farking loved it. even when the soft stuff fell i stuck with the board i once hated.

it is tuff to have some kind of expectation in a board which is then 100% satisfied.... it is even tuffer when you feel sure it will fsil to fit the bill. but then when you expect little other than your effort to adapt to the thing strapped to your feet....

i'd suggest you stick with it.

you bought a park board...just a very stiff one. libs are stiff to begin with in my opinion and the dark series especially so. i was looking at the dark series as a park board and passed because of its stiffness. dont get me wrong, its a damn nice board but if you want soft for butters and such, yes you should have gone with the agent.

I'm keeping this in mind as I wait for a 59 Banana Rocker to be delivered. But usually when I get obsessed with a product, I read a cajillion reviews, determine it's right for me, buy it and just enjoy it, ie. my first iPod, my current car, and my personal favorite, a Hutch Trick Star freestyle bike bought in 1987 and which I still have haha... I would have liked to demo the Banana Rocker but they're impossible to find on the East Coast.

Scratch that. Vendor didn't have the Banana in stock. Back to the drawing board.

Dood that is a great park board. Whether or not it is what you expected, it is still going to be an excellent board. FYI you don't always want a super flexy board for jibbing and park work, in fact a lot of times where to much flex will suck ass hard. I would ride it for a while and see what you think. I bet it is super poppy with the added stiffness and such.

As a NS owner, I think EVERYONE should hold-off for one...but then would just turn into Burton...so maybe not.

I was thinking this same thing...

I always admire the guys that are crazy witht he buttering, and wish I could do it, but my park board is pretty damn stiff too(Option Icon)... its a beginner/intermediate board, so they intentionally didn't put a lot of flex into it, plsu my legs aren't that strong anyways...

point being where it might suck for jibbing and buttering, a stiff park board will be excellent for jumps (better pop and response), pipe, and rail performance will be moderate (will take more finesse though).

I say hang with it, but if you really hate it, maybe I'll pick it up off ya!
