07/08 Lib tech Dark Series MTX
 
Does the 07/08 Lib tech Dark Series MTX have banana tech or is that new on the 08/09? How does the dark series compare to the TRS, like what is each better at and whats the difference in feel?

Dark Series had MTX option in 07 08 but not BTX (banana camber with magnetraction edges). I believe it does this year (as an option).

I had an 07 Dark series with MTX. It was a great board. It was heavy, which I noticed more as the season wore on. It was, and I think it still is, a directional board but Lib says it's freestyle oriented. It was kinda stiff especially the tail - actually the tail was very, very stiff - like a rudder, but it was still a great all mountain board. I switched to a Lib TRS BTX because I wanted a twin, more flex and banana. I haven't tried the TRS yet (except down some carpeted stairs where it performed beautifully). Another difference between thr TRS and the Dark (besides flex, twin-shape and btx) is the base. The TRS has an extruded base -Now, it's supposed to be a very good extruded base, but the Dark Series had a very fast (when waxed) sintered base. I decided to risk the extruded base since I have heard it's not bad (especially if you are not so good about waxing).
