Yeah, not saying it isn't a good board. I just have a problem with the claim of "the worlds best camber board"... Best at what?

The would be like saying the Bugatti Veyron is the worlds best car. It may be the best at getting from point A to B in the shortest period of time while using the most gas, but it's not the best at taking 4 people and their snowboards to the mountain.

I guess my problem is with the word BEST. Is Aaron Rodgers the best QB ever because he has the highest career passer rating? Is Schumacher the best driver in the world because he won the most F1 titles, or does that one go to some of the long haul truckers that have multi-million mile accident free records?

The best carving camber board would be an alpine board.
The best floating camber board would be a 200+ cm long powder stick.
The best jumping camber board? Who the hell knows...
Best camber board in the trees? Who the hell knows...

The best overall camber board? The one you're riding on a great snow day.

Haha that is a bold statement saying the world’s best anything when it comes to boards bc that’s a very personal opinion but for me I’m diggin it.

Lib Tech Hot Knife C3BTX Snowboard - Blem 2013 | evo

That's a blemished board, but if you're okay with that it'll save $50. Otherwise I try to never buy a current model year board until March... For ages I never spent more than 50% of MSRP on a board (got my burton T7 for $500 CDN). With my recent board purchase I had to spend closer to MSRP but still got 30% off. That was a custom made board!

I guess most of the builders have the dealers selling at MSRP to keep the margins thick? That's too bad...

I'm sure they make some great boards, but worlds best camber board?

Other than that, sounds like you had fun on it.
it's a marketing statement, what the hell would you expect them to say "A pretty decent camber board, at least according to us, and maybe a few other guys"... of course they are going to say it's the best. You're just upset because they didn't say "The worlds best camber board, besides those expensive euro ironing boards that poutanen rides"

Guilty!!!

They could say "the best camber board that's actually not a camber board that we've ever made!" and I would have been fine with it.

Torpedo's quote was pretty funny Poutanen

What will be even funnier is you completely obliterating us carving down the slope with your "ironing board."

Sounds like a challenge to me! The hardbooter forum is having a day at Nakiska next weekend, I'm heading out for the saturday at least. If it doesn't puke snow somewhere else maybe you guys would want to have a groomer bomber day?!?

I'll be the first to admit the BX board shape looks REALLY awkward, squared off tips like a plank of wood. It's not fast looking like an alpine board, or smooth looking like a traditional freeride board. So far I like it though! Plus if you ever need to iron something on the road... lol
