Lib with the least rocker
 
The Lib & GNU web sites are confusing. Which of the boards have the least rocker. In the past I had been looking at the Phoenix(not crazy about the base), Riders choice, DK, TRS &Trice.

For Lib-Tech there is really only the new C3 Jamie Lynn (which basically camber with a dip in the center) and specialty boards like the La Niņa. Otherwise mellow C2 like on the Phoenix.

More or less the same for GNU, only you have even fewer options - Danny Kass board is as camber-ish as it gets.

BTW, nothing wrong with the base on the Phoenix. Or is it that you do not like the design?

I have just heard people bitching about the base. For the price why would it be extruded? How much rocker is on the DK?

I rode the NS Heritage in Montana last year and had a blast. Then when back at my resort on groomers I felt it had too much rocker!

Last years Phoenix has much less rocker than last years Heritage. I have both.

Not my pic, it was stolen from another thread. My wife would probably change the locks.

TNT is not extruded, and is as fast as other sintered bases. It is softer though, owning both, libs sintered bases are much more gouge resistant. Cant get the cool base graphics though.

It was my understanding that TNT bases are extruded? Hence why Lib denotes the boards with sintered bases as sintered on their website:dunno:

(fwiw the TNT base didn't stop me from buying a phoenix)

The board depends on what you are using it for and your weight and flex you want:

RC - flex that goes up with size. Mountain board twin - BIG nose and tail kicker.

DK - flex that goes up with size. twin - SMALL nose and tail kicker. Mellow mtx. wider waist

TR - Stiff flex throughout sizes. BIG nose and tail kicker? wider waist

TRS - flex that goes up with size. not sure on the nose tail kicker. tnt base

As you can see they are all different boards with different flexes and profiles.


Like the other people said: C3 Jamie lynn 2013 classic and the C1 La Nina least amount of rocker.

It

all of libs base info is misleading, i was told tnt was not extruded in this post.

From inspection lib has three base materials,

TNT, a clear base inpregnated with florocarbon shit, allows lib to sublimate crazy cool base graphics used on most boards. fixes easily with a ptex candle

swirled sintered, used on the skate banana and sidewalls, two solid colors mixed together. harder and more gouge resistant than TNT. Hard to repair, ptex candle doesnt stick.

sintered 9900, black fast race base, on the la nina, banana magic, temple cummings.
