Question What is the beat Lib Tech for me?

Hello Snowboarders.

Let's keep it simple I'm about 80 kg and 1.80 m and I was wandering what is the best do it all C2 lib tech snowboard for me.
The boards that I like the most are the:
158 Dark Series Dark Series Lib Tech Snowboards
157 TRS total Ripper Series TRS: Total Ripper Series Lib Tech Snowboards

BTW I have the Rome Targas

I apologize for typo mistakes in advance

Cygnus X1, JK. Those two have different bases and are pretty different boards all together. The TRS I believe has the TNT extruded base, Dark Series has a nicer sintered base and is IMO a better overall board. Whats your budget? If you can squeeze a bit more $$ from the tree check out the banana magic.

is there any reason you are limiting yourself to Libtechs?

i'd recomend the Arbor Coda and Westmark if you are open to other brands.

About my budget i think i can afford any Lib Tech Board but the Cygnus X1.
About the banana magic i really love this board but I think It's a little to much park for me + it doesn't have the C2 pow banana tech that i kind of like.

I'm limited to the Lib Tech company Because I live in the middle east and not all of the companies sell us their boards

The Banana Magic is definitely not a park board. It is very tortionally stiff, noticeably more so than a T. Rice in in the same size (157). I guess you could call it a pipe board, but absolutely not a park board, get that out of your head right now. Both boards give you the most upper end features and tech for your buck behind the Skate in Lib's Lineup.

You are probably thinking of the Skate Banana instead of the Banana Magic when you say it's too park for you. Like slickmister said, the Magic is by no means a park board.

You really need to tell us what type of riding you do most and what type of board response you want if we are going to give you suggestions.

If you want a stiff, all mountain board for steeps, high speed and powder, go with the Dark Series or TRice. If you want something softer that could also be used in the park a little more, the TRS might be the better choice.

Super secret you say? Hmmmm....very interesting. Their website only calls it BTX so you're saying they aren't telling me the truth Guess I should have looked closer when I was messin with one at the shop.

they never update their website. but anyways the shape of the Banana Magic is called "Enhanced BTX." It has a special type of c2.I looked at one in a shop last year and it 100 percent has camber under feet.
