Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Titty Fish 2020 - 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The Lib Tech Titty Fish got a very thick, supportive, concealing bra on the nose compared to the 2019 model. It has a design that will appeal to riders that just want full-on camber and have the ability to get around the consequences to reap the rewards.

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 on edges that weren’t properly de-tuned as production models will be, so take it with a grain of salt.
Size: 156
Days:  1
Conditions: Pretty hard CO Snow.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs), Peter (Size 8, 5’11” 185lbs), Zobel (Size 11.5, 6’ 180lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADVAdidas Response,
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles,  Footprint Insole Technology Gameghangers Low Profile
Bindings: Salomon Hologram

Similar Boards (but not the same) That We Referenced This Against: Gnu Mullair, Lib Tech BRD, Lib Tech Dynamo,

Set-Up: 22” Wide. 21 front -6 back. Close to Reference and Set all the way back.  22” Wide. 15 front -15 back.  Centered.

Approximate Weight: Feels normalish.

Sizing: The 156 felt just right for Peter and me but it was way too narrow for Zobel. He needed one of the Mid-Wide sizes. Feels like it can handle a bigger guy without altering the personality too much.

Flex/Buttering: Not an easy board to butter. The Lib Tech Titty Fish is pretty much a medium-stiff flex from tip to tail and even borders on the stiff side. Not every model has a perfect flex from board to board because wood is not the same in every board but the one we tried felt a touch stiffer than the flex rating. It has a lot of energy underfoot but it needs a lot of strength to capitalize on it.

On Snow Feel/Ability Level/Skidded Turns: The Lib Tech Titty Fish barely feels like it’s even C3 and there is almost no passive bend in the middle and it seems like there is no early rise in the nose either. It is a very aggressive/technical old school tapered directional ride that doesn’t feel too tapered. It is not easy to skid turns and it’s not for those that don’t understand how to turn a full camber board correctly. Expert riders preferred but advanced could handle it ok.

Edge Hold: Not quite the edge hold that most Mervin boards have and we felt it on the hard snow we rode it on that day. It’s somewhat competent on hard snow but compared to the BRD, Dynamo or Mullair it just doesn’t have the grip. Borders on being a board for medium to hard snow.

Turn Initiation: Pretty quick edge to edge and it’s good for turning (if done correctly) in tight spots.

Turning Experience/Carving: This is a great board for those that understand carving well and like to make hard carves. I personally got a little more out of the Mullair but it is a little more friendly for the average rider. Same with the Dynamo but those that like a more aggressive ride might prefer that. I would have liked to try this in softer snow with properly tunned edges and see what it could do but we could see it’s potential with what we had.

Powder: So there is 10mm of taper, the long nose and the 1.5″ back on sidecut as well as probably a good bit more back on board and not a ton of effective edge. However, all this camber fights this a bit. This is a great board for those that like riding camber in powder, know how to keep your speed, and like lots of pop off the tail. All of our crew would all prefer the BRD in the deep  deep though.

Speed: Fast and stable. The base had decent glide for not being waxed and it is a very damp board.

Uneven Terrain: The Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Titty Fish is stiff and stiff boards can get a little cranky in harder micro bumpy conditions. That being said it weaves in and out of bumps and powers over them well.

Switch:Pretty good for how lopsided it is.

Jumps: This matches its riders ability and it likes big directional air. If you rip you can land switch too.

Jibbing: Pass…

Pipe: Great directional pipe ride. Edge hold isn’t like other Mervin made MTX boards but it still will drive super well wall to wall. You can go big with this.

So the Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Titty Fish is a really good fit for an acomplished rider that has been pissed for the last 10+ years at all the hybrid shapes out there and just want’s an old school freeride board.

 
Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Titty Fish Past Reviews

The Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Titty Fish is just fun to say and it’s a pretty fun/weird ride.  It’s basically the exact opposite ride to the Dagmar and has C3 (mostly camber) instead of C2 (hybrid rocker). It turns and carves very well but it’s catchy and doesn’t float as well in powder.  It’s a great board for the more technical old school rider that likes a little bit off the back foot springy ride.

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.
