Lib Tech snowboards
I've been riding mervin prodcuts for the last two seasons, and I'd have to say that craftsmanship is horrible! I had a GNU rider's choice and that board chipped easily, I had to super-glue some parts of the top sheet down. Also I hit some rails a few times and the side wall craved in. I thought i might of had a bad model but then it happened again this year with the Lib Tech Phenoix series. My brother also bought Lib tech NAS skis, and after one day of trees and riding the resort the top sheet and sidewall was done. The side wall also seems like paper material just glued onto ABS plastic. I'm very disappointed to say the least. I would never buy any mervin products again. I don't know how they end up as award winner year after year. Definitely not a board to get if your investing $400 plus dollars to last you season after season. I hate to say it, but I would recommend burton, forum, and ride. I've never had craftsmanship problem with them.
