I want to like Libtech again, theres so many positives, a company with deep roots, they still make rockered boards, north american made, etc but i just can't get over the base nonsense (maybe its resolved now but it doesn't seem like it since we're still talking about it) and all the c3#4Btx! bends etc are infuriating. tone it down to like 3 bends and get back to me.

I find it way more annoying when companies give one name to a bend that varies between boards and they don’t tell you, and their diagram is sometimes inaccurate, and you have to figure it out on your own in person or forums. This seems most common to me. The amount that Mervin uses may seem annoying at first, but at least it notes a variation. Granted, then you have the mervariance effect, soooo who knows

Was bummed that a current ejack, that's supposed to have a sintered base, had tnt after all at local shop. The cardboard print had all the same details as on the website apart from a different base. Maybe they just use what they have, throw it in a batch and don't really care about it, but care enough to at least change the print. Mervariance is real. Still pretty stoked about the 161 banana magic I have waiting.. Seems like the perfect pow twin plaything for me.

I don’t know that I have ever seen it written that the EJack was sintered, but the last time I looked was over a year ago. Being lib rather than gnu, not surprised at all. If you are into that deck, the Mullair is virtually the same. It’s... co-sintered these days? I think that’s the sintered/extruded combo spoken about earlier. Never had speed issues, but damn if that thing didn’t dry out quick. My squash makes it seem like trash.

General comment, don’t get me wrong, I get all this Mervin weirdness… I guess it just doesn’t bother me. I also really like their boards. But, moved on. Not sure if or when I will pick up another.

Says eco-sintered on website, said TNT on the print sheet at the shop. Still different, but I don't think I'd go either way. 

The more recent Mü seemed a touch softer than previous years so might like it more than my 1st year one. Just like the more twinned out principle of the Ejack more and the camber is at least twice as high vs any of the mü's I've seen in the wild. Mmm.

D-Day Ranquet with a ranquet signature..stuck at customs for almost two months, finally here.  Also not sure who pressed these but the area where the tail draws in..each side is significantly different l o l. Seems soft but will be fun to ride.
