Comments about Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

Very good board, very stable. Some of my jumps I landed awkward but the board helps me keep my balance. Also very fast and doesn't catch you on your edge when buttering. Also has good pop.

      Comments about Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

      I've mostly bombed the slopes so far with a stiffer, longer stick. Got this board to focus more on tricks and playing around. I went quite short too (from 158 to 154) so it spins very well on jumps, and the softer flex helps to press and butter easily. Even on the occasional fast groomer run, it holds edge very well, but that's not what this board is meant for.

        Comments about Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard - Blem 2014:

        Kind of dissappointed that the blemish on my board was quite visible, and affected my riding. On the description the blemish on the snowboard said it would only be a graphics blemish but really turned out to be nice little dent/ding on the nose of the board. The price of the board was cheap and thought that the blemish wouldn't make a big difference but it really does bother me and affects my riding negatively. I would have gladly payed the extra $40 to avoid buying the blemish board and bought the normal board if I had known that the blemish would be this big of an issue. Thanks for the great board and all but just make sure to mention that a blemish board is not only going to affect the graphics but also the qualities of the board as well.
        Thanks again Evo but now I know not to buy anything blemish from your site again

        P.S. I still support your guys store and will continue buying products, but I was just really unsatisfied when I opened up my snowboard and found a nice little ding on there instead of a little blemish on the graphics...

          Excellent all around board. Great for any terrain, park, freestyle, & all mountain. The Magnetraction will shred anything from slush to sleet, ice to fresh pow.
