No, they don't.

Okay, latest developement:

It's becoming painfully obvious I'm a huge equipment noob, because I just now found out that Never Summer uses very similar camber/rocker style profiles for their boards.

So I've been reading reviews and whatching clips again, and so far it's looking like the NS SL is pretty much what I look for in a board. Good to have another option, though those NS boards are DAMN pricey is seems:s

Edit/update: I'm looking at all other brands that have boards with the same type of triple rocker profile (or whatever you call it). I might be wrong, but something tells me the rocker concept would be perfect for me if it had extra contact points, pop, and better edge hold than the average full rocker board. I'm also coming to terms with the fact that there's no way I can justify spending big bucks on a premium board like the lib techs and never summers, at least not if I don't find a 2011/2012 board somewhere, which is turns out impossible so far:s

So if you guys don't mind me changing the subject here, it'd save us all another 'which board' thread

What poor man's Libtech TRS or NS SL are there out there? Cheers.

Well the question is how much dough you have to spend.

I'd say a good slightly cheaper libtech alternative would be a Phoenix.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check the prices and availability. I doubt the "directional twin" thing will be an issue, it's not like I ride switch half of the time or make big switch landings or anything, so I guess it'll do fine...Right??

A couple others I spotted:

Drake DF2: Haven't found too many reviews or tests yet.
Nitro Subzero Hotwing: Came across a couple really negative reviews of Nitro's 'gulwing' profile.
Forum Youngblood Doubledog: Seems to be more park oriented, not sure if it's perfect for hardpack/pow.
Smokin superparkForum Destroyer Doubledog.
Apo MTD: It's supposed to be an allmountain freestyle board, but it only gets a 5 and a 6 on Apo's own carving and powder scale.

They all happen to be available in 152/153cm on a webshop I found, last year's models, for about half of what a new libtech would cost me.

What's the general consensus about these brands and models? Anyone any experience with any of those? If it's not agains forum rules, I think I'm gonna make a new thread of this after all, I've sorta derailed...:s

Thanks.

You just have no clue what you are talking about. That is like saying they all have a base - big fucking deal.

The irony. You don't even know why I mentioned the banana tech in the first place. GTFO.
