Extruded bases on $800 boards, that's some genius snake oil bullshit right there. Lol. Again, anyone paying 600-1000 bucks for a lib board is a fucking idiot.

It makes NS pricing more appropriate because NS quality is 2x Lib quality. Also, NS is not more expensive.

For me the custom FV is stiffer underfoot than the proto or previous cobra model but lacks the edge hold NS offers. Especially on hardpack. Also I've never been a fan of burtons take on CRC - my...
