Your absolutely right about the c2btx camber and mag trac that makes Mervin boards ride so damn well in every condition. I recently switched from a Burton dominant camber to the gnu Billy goat and don't think I can ever go back to riding camber boards because of how confident I feel while riding the Billy. That being said I'm sad to hear the hp is not up to par , wanted to grab one off season to use as a wider pow board, but now this is making me think twice. Graphics on the hp so much more better than the non hp version
I hope that enough people will raise this with LT so they look at a way to address the issue with HP tops.
I was thinking, if the HP's main selling point is that it's a little lighter - I'm wondering if that's a big enough difference. Think about it, it your board weights about ~5lbs does saving a couple of hundred grams make a difference? Especially when your boots and bindings weight about 15lbs.
Same for any weight / spin weight saved without a blade around the nose and tail, does it make that much difference to sacrifice the strength a d protection they provide?
Realistically Libtech (Mervin) isn't going to change the way they produce their boards because it has been a standard among their line for years now. I guess you take the good with the bad. The one thing I never understood was why Lib tends to be so much more expensive that other boards when they don't seem to be quite as durable
