Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Dagmar 2020 - 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix Dagmar, to us it felt like a slightly tapered take on the old Jamie Lynn C2 and it offers up a much more forgiving floaty ride than the C3 model.
The 2020 Lib Tech Dagmar is pretty much the same ride to the 2019 model we rode so the vid review still stands. The written review was expanded on and updated for what’s happening in 2020.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
How This Review Happened: We had a couple of laps at a frantic manic demo day.
Conditions: Firm in some places to hard in others.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs), Jimbo (Size 11, 5’11” 160lbs), Peter (Size 8, 5’11” 185lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV for all three
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles, Footprint Insole Technology Gameghangers Low Profile
Bindings: Bent Metal Solution
Set-Up: 22-22.5”, Close to reference stance, 15 front -15 back
Similar Boards (but not the same) That We Compared This To:
Mainly the Lib Tech Titty Fish. Yes Pick Your Line, Burton Flight Attendant, Gnu Mullair, Jones Flagship, Never Summer West Bound, Rossignol XV, Lib Tech BRD, Lib Tech Lost Round Nose Fish
Approximate Weight: Feels normal to a little bit on the heavy side of normal. Weight isn’t consistent from board to board because wood never weighs the same with any manufacturer.
Sizing: The 160 felt a little bit big for Peter and me. We would have preferred the 157 but going 160 was a good compromise for Jimbo’s 11’s. Still, he would have preferred the wide.
Flex/Buttering: So the flex isn’t super mellow but it has a more of an easier butter to it than you would think if you flexed it in the shop. It has that Lib-Tech Pop to it but it feels a little damper than your average Lib-Tech board.
On Snow Feel/Ability Level/Skidded Turns: C2/Hybrid Rocker is forgiving but somewhat loose and spinny in harder snow so the board’s personality underfoot changes from condition to condition. It’s easy to skid a turn when you are off your game and its a great board for anyone thats on the beginner to intermediate side.
Edge Hold: Pretty strong edge hold for the mellower magnetraction that grips well in hard snow, is decent in the icy snow but doesn’t grab as much in softer snow.
Turn Initiation: Pretty fast but not super fast for us edge to edge. Go’s where it should when it should.
Turning Experience/Carving: The hybrid rocker doesn’t really give you a strong carve but you can for sure carve with this. Turning overall is fun but not over the top springy good times. The very mellow taper in the tail doesn’t need you to weight the back foot super hard but it’s a little more fun turning it that way. We had way more fun on the Titty Fish on a carve but not bad for C2.
Powder: There seems to be some good float here with the nose/tail off the ground. Then you have a little bit of taper and a good set back on sidecut. We didn’t do an extended demo but it seems like there should be even better set back on board so it should float well.
Speed: Damp and pointy for a hybrid rocker board but if you want to bomb the Titty Fish is the call.
Uneven Terrain: Great board for all-day resort riding. It can weave through messy stuff and power over it really well.
Switch: Pretty doable and it didn’t feel super directional. Not quite like the old Jamie Lynn Phoenix double-ender, we rode in the past but better than you would think from looking at the shape before you ride it.
Jumps: Good pop off the tail and it can get air.
Jibbing: Kinda stiff and unfriendly in the jib park.
Pipe: The Lib Tech Dagmar has a pretty friendly pipe ride to it that is forgiving and pretty good for all but the super technical riders that prefer more camber for driving harder from wall to wall.
