Great bindings. The canted footbeds saved me knees from the torture I regularly give them on the mountain. Just the right amount of stiffness on the highbacks.
A tad on the heavy side but oh sooooo good!
I've demoed pretty much all of Lib's line and even for a short 5' 4" tall guy like me, the 153 version of this deck is my go-to board. I thought the Banana Magic was awesome but that was before this board came along. T.Rice board is too stiff for me.
Attack Banana, stable in turns, on landings, through pow, crud and chop. For me, quite damp.
I also got to demo the '13/'14 Attack Banana at Baker this season and just as good.

At first I was a little worried that the 151 would be a bit short for my size, specially since I am 150lbs and have a size 9 boot and the waist width is 24.7cm and I usually ride boards around 156 to 158.
This deck is a workhorse. The mellow mag is a lot less catchy than the other two Libs I own (a T.Rice 153 and a Banana Magic 157) and you can lock and carve better than any carving board out there. The base, even though extruded, is quite fast. Much longer radial sidecut to lock in to those turns and gun it over everything.
The C2BTX definitely helps keep it a lot more stable on high speed. Isn't squirelly at all like other reverse camber/rocker boards I've tried. Very stable on every jump I hit with it.
I took it through the trees, through ice and crud, on through the deep and the steep. Slayed 'em all. Very happy with this board.
The stiffest board I've ever ridden and even Lib-Tech's Dark Series is soft compared to this. Great pop. The setback stance is great and helps it float through pow. Amazing through trees and the carving ability of this board is second to none. Very fast, one of the fastest bases if you wax and keep it happy. Also, very stable over crud and chop and quite damp.
Ridden it almost five seasons now and taken it over everything and not a single cosmetic scratch.
After riding the stiffer C60s for the last three seasons, I wanted something that had just the right stiffness on the highbacks.
Rode them at Baker today on my old T6 156 and wow, my favorite plank is a lot more fun when you have a binding that's a lot more playful. The ankle straps and toe straps, just like the ones on the C60s, are great and work without any problems.
I am also going to be riding these with the 154 Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix C2BTX I have.
Not as stiff as the T.Rice or the Dark Series but not as noodly as the Skate Banana. Great in the park. Actually, great all over the mountain. Riden some deep spots on this at Baker and Stevens Pass and it glides through pow like a hot knife through butter.
One of the best boards I've ridden in a while. Taken it on everything and it performs. I don't have the cajones that Rice does but taken this in to the park and on the steep and deep runs and it killed it all. The wide width with the C2 Banana made it really stable on everything including landings off of kickers and cliffs and the HP construction makes it pop like hell.
I am a freeride snowboarder and after a season of riding in Burton Ions which are one of the stiffest boots I have ever worn, I got these.
These fit me better than the Ions on the first try. Weirdest thing was the Ions I have are a size 8.5 and these are a size 9. I get slight heel lift in the Ion and none in these. I like the Boa better than the Freezone lace system.
1) Vans so called Cork insoles just like any other default insoles suck. It's not a full cork insole. I put Superfeet in them.
2) The huge Strap on the back on the boot. It really interferes with getting the boot strapped in.
I ride a Burton T6 with C60s and I also rode these on a Burton Custom with Custom Bindings and Rossignol One-Mag with Cuda V1 bindings.
DIdn't matter though. Overall, great fit, very comfy on my flat feet with the Superfeet and VERY responsive. My feet weren't tired at the end of the day like they were with the Ions.
