The Lib Tech Quiver Killer did live up to its name. Well, in the sense that it could be a good one-board solution. It could adapt to a lot of different riding styles and conditions. Update 2024: The Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer is pretty much the same ride, but check the pow update as we had a lot more time on it since this review.

Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer 2021-2023 Written Review Review by The Good Ride

You could butter around, ride switch well for how tapered it is, ollie off things around the mountain, and even make some good carves without it feeling too washy in the tail. It also looks like you can set it back in powder and get some pretty respectable directional float. It can be a lot of different things to a wide variety of riders, and we want to own one. We just wish there were more sizing options. It is hard to define as it has an all-mountain feel but with a tapered directional freeride shape all set in a shorter/somewhat wider package.

Approximate Weight

Feels pretty normal.


So the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer has a wide nose and waist but the tapered tail might be what makes this 154 feel soo good with our size 8.5-9 boots.
154 : 8-10 and some reduced footprint 10.5’s
159: 10-12

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

Lib says full camber, but there is definitely a touch of early rise in the nose and a little in the tail. It isn’t like the Lib Tech Lost Rocket or Lib Tech BRD but there is a little tweak up before the nose begins. The Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer still has a lot of camber but has more of a modern take on it.  So what does that mean? Well, it means it is pretty locked in but not like old camber rides. For most riders, it will be on the stable/less catchy side of semi-locked-in. Intermediate riders could easily catch an edge if they get off their game, but it shouldn’t scare most camber-loving advanced to expert riders. It tracks really well in the flats or one footing off the chair.

Quiver Killer with some early rise in the nose and a touch in the tail.


Mervin does cool things with the board’s flex personality, and the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer is no exception. We could all butter with a good bit of effort and could easily access its Ollie power too. It just felt poppy without being light and chattery.


The base has medium glide, and the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer can do everything right on a straight line for its size and flex. It is not a bomber though.

Uneven Terrain

the board is not super damp but can ride all day without falling apart in messy snow.

Edge Hold

The edge hold is less than most people would expect from Mervin, and there is almost no disruption.

Turn Initiation

Medium to medium fast turn initiation with the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer. I could easily turn through bumps if I needed to.

Turning Experience/Carving

There is really good spring out of the turn when you get that edge engaged into a turn and the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer is a friend to most radius turns we like to make. I would love to make some good turns in all conditions. You need a little bit more weight on the back foot to keep it from washing but not as much as some boards with this much taper.


So I actually bought this board and got it in some good pow. It floated very well for a 154. It’s far from all time but very good for a one-board quiver. It’s better than most all-mountain boards. When set all the way back, you can get a setback from the center of the board of 3.625″ with a 22.75″ stance width. Combine that with the with the taper in the tail, a little early rise in the nose and the decent set back on board it is a very competent floater.


Very doable for 9mm of taper, and we had fun taking the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer switch.

Getting Air/Park

There wasn’t much park to hit, but it had that feel that it would work pretty well hitting kickers and even be pretty good in pipe. Somewhat jibable too but not ideal.


Peter and I wanted to own this after one run, as it can do a lot for a tapered directional board of this size.
