Trying to do some research - came across this youtube vid.....

Lib Tech Snowboards C3 Explained on 2013 Jamie Lynn snowboard - SIA - Board Insiders Lib-Tech C3 - YouTube

Does it make any sense to you all??? To me, and I watched it twice, the guy contradicts himself and sounds overall retarded. ??????

NM.... I think I get it....

lol.... totally. You saw the grey hair too!

But seriously..... the guy probably went out and had a great time the night before. Watch it 3 x and it makes sense. (ok, so it takes me 3x because I too had a great time last night)

I don't understand why they would reverse the profile? The camber under the feet is supposed to make up for the rocker between the feet.

EDIT--

I love the BG so much I haven't even thought of another board with the exception of a pair of skis! Any excuse to buy a new toy and I'm there!!!!
C3 is camber overall. In Mervin speak, Camber dominant, Rocker Submissive. Camber is the king of energy storage and assists in transitioning from edge to edge and in boosting. The rocker section can help the contact points break free when fully weighted. The downside of camber is that the contact points are down and can get sticky (and trip you up on occasion).

Thx!

Why are they reversing the tech? I could see adding the tech to the lineup but why completely reverse it yet still call it the Billy Goat?

I think of it as refining the tech, mervin did btx rocker on every board some people liked it some didn't. Same with mtx. Now they are dailing in a rocker profile and amount of mag for different models. I personaly like reg btx the most. I really like the loose feel. I mostly freeride and never feel unstable. I wish I could find a billygoat from the years it had btx.
