Yup... I can promise you there won't be one time this winter that I say fuck I wish that phoenix had a sintered base (if in fact it doesn't... WFC!)

From inspection lib has three base materials,

TNT, a clear base inpregnated with florocarbon shit, allows lib to sublimate crazy cool base graphics used on most boards. fixes easily with a ptex candle

swirled sintered, used on the skate banana and sidewalls, two solid colors mixed together. harder and more gouge resistant than TNT. Hard to repair, ptex candle doesnt stick.

sintered 9900, black fast race base, on the la nina, banana magic, temple cummings.

24WERD The board depends on what you are using it for and your weight and flex you want:

RC - flex that goes up with size. Mountain board twin - BIG nose and tail kicker.

DK - flex that goes up with size. twin - SMALL nose and tail kicker. Mellow mtx. wider waist

TR - Stiff flex throughout sizes. BIG nose and tail kicker? wider waist

TRS - flex that goes up with size. not sure on the nose tail kicker. tnt base

As you can see they are all different boards with different flexes and profiles.


Like the other people said: C3 Jamie lynn 2013 classic and the C1 La Nina least amount of rocker.
