I picked up a Hot Knife and it is the world's best camber board. Well okay, I like it. It is poppy and great for choppy hard pack. It also has Lib-Tech's new base, which is super fast. Probably the best base ever. I kid I kid. It is nice to see Lib-Tech build camber boards, which by the way they have three models. Also, for those looking to buy, Snowboard Connection in Seattle and Bellevue have them on sale for 25% off. It is not on their web site so you will have to call to see if it is an in-store discount only.

would this board be considered an all mountain board?

Also, how does it handle tight turns and trees?

Called about this and it is in-store only....that would be a killer deal though.

Just placed my order for a 156 HK last night with some Cartels. Evo has the HK 20% off right now. I'm curious how it is in the trees as well.

My current ride (NS Premier) is pretty quick edge to edge and I'm hoping the HK is similar in that regard.

hey , u will be fine with the hk in trees

i took mine out to breck this weekend and it is basically my first "camber" board ever and I really loved how it handles the trees.

First of all, the base is really fast, which can be a good and bad thing in trees. then it is damp as well, on the upper spectrum in lib boards. The mellow MTX is really good as well, not grabby feeling like on my t rice but grip the ice patches here and there.

tips and tail are a little stiff for what i expected, if it can be a tad softer, that will make it really playful, but again, u gain some u lose some.

it does ride like we say: a rear wheel drive

Would the 159 HK work with 11.5 flow hylite boots?

Hot Knife is a great ride. Don't regret getting it at all.
