Default GNU/Lib-Tech BTX/PTX difference?

I know that on some of Gnu's (and I think maybe Lib-Tech as well) has an option between BTX tech and PTX tech. I am not 100% sure what the difference is. If I am not mistaken BTW or "Banana Tech" is the constant rocker that we are used to in the Skate Banana and PTX or "Pickle Tech" is Camber underfoot and Rocker in the middle. These are just my guesses as I have only seen my friends 1 PTX board and that's what the camber profile looked like to me. If anyone has a definite answer please respond below and tell me the difference between the technologies.

Hi CheoSamad,

PTX stands for Pickle Technology which which refers to a deeper sidecut on the heelside than the toeside.

BTX stands for Banana Technology which is one of Mervin's profile shapes. It is ROCKER between the feet and then flat (or pretty close to flat) out to the contact points.

So, to answer your question, PTX and BTX can come together (they do on the Park Pickle) or without each other.

let us know when you get on the new jamie lynn with lib's new rocker profile. big side cut with a lil extra camber, sounds like a great carving board.

Thank you for watching out for me! What I described would be pretty awful
