Ah yes, the world we live in eh? I could never get those damn butters with my stiff board (the board I used for free ride/kickers). So yes, I see how ass-backwards that is but it is just my learning style.

Roundabout- it was only my front foot (hadn't taken it out in 20 or so runs). I also tightened it wayyyy to much, adding 1 extra click per run (I think I got it tightened all of the way). So it was about 95% human error, but it did still take 10 or so minutes of struggling, worth it though! But that is getting specific, in general it is just annoying that the top has that little plastic mechanism to unstrap fast, but the bottom doesn't. A tip to whoever is having that problem, push down the front too as your pulling up the back. It goes smoother that way.

Thinking about putting M-9s on mine.
I'm pretty sure those are last years model 09/10. I love them I am new so I can't tell you about the flexibility but they haven't hindered my riding at all. I love the power straps, I have "zero" strap pain. When I press my foot front/back my board flexes and turns. The speed and comfort are awesome like I said.
I had Bent Metal last year and these are light years ahead of them.

My oldest boy has M9's and the younger has "Five's". I prefer the design of the M9's the ratchets point up so snow doesn't pack in the ratchets and click them. This is happening to the Five's I had to zip tie the ratchets down to prevent this.

Cool lib tech skate banana!

Aright here is what i have to say about the "Skate Banana",this board intrigued me before i bought it. I had heard so many good things about it and i thought hey sounds like a quality all mountain board right? well in a sense yes but in another sense no, The skate banana is an amazing park board and an awesome board for resort and hard pack but that is the thing.... this board is marketed as an "All-Mountain Board" and upsetingly i think it is fair to say it did not comply to it's fullest in powder. For the money there are many other boards that could be purchased at a lesser value that have the same or even better specs and abilities. The first problem i had was that the P-Tex is very easily damaged and even though it is a cheap repair it is still an inconvenience. The second problem was that the metal edges were not durable to an extent. Another problem i had was that with it being an all mountain board it does not ride as well as other boards in powder. i know for a fact that for $549.99CA there are numerous boards that could relic the sufficient float needed even after adjusting bindings to a float stance (back a notch or to towards the tail) all in all as i do complain it is an awesome board and i would buy another if i had to but i can complain about little improvements it could use (stronger core,little higher on flex scale,and a little lighter) i do suggest just doing your research into boards such as the capita DOA or the FK'N awesome, or the DC Mega, but anyways if you can find this board for under 400$ go right the hell for it i give it 3 thumbs up
