Default Lib tech...TNT?...sintered? WTF?

I know this horse has been beaten to death, but I just noticed something...

The Lib site says the Skate Banana has has a TNT base. From everything ive gathered, the TNT is an extruded base. Some sites list the SB as having a sintered base, but I figured that they just put the wrong info down.

I never bothered to check my last SB, but I just got a 2013, and the sticker on the bottom of the board clearly says "Sintered Base."

Anybody know what the deal is? Ive read everything I can find, and based on some of the posts, it seems like even the people at lib tech are confused.

TNT base is an extruded base. Skate bananas have always had sintered bases from what i can remember, but this year they changed it up for some reason and put in the tnt base. So if you have the skate banana that you can view on lib techs website right now, then it should have an extruded base.

I have the current model that is on the website. Check out the sticker though. It says it has a sintered base. Its not a leftover sticker either, because it mentions art by "Mike Parillo".

you should email Lib-Tech and ask. If you google the 2013 board, I found various pics of that same one (color, etc) on the net and on some of them you can read the sticker and they all say sintered that I saw, but the specs beside them list it a TNT base.... very odd. A major sticker misprint?
