Swipe Right: Slightly shorter, slightly wider, tapered directional, poppy, playful, floaty, one board quiver.
Swipe Left: Not many sizes. People who want Lib Tech style Magnetraction won’t like the grip.

Summary

The Lib Tech Quiver Killer did live up to its name…well in the sense it could be a good one board solution. It could adapt to a lot of different riding styles and conditions. 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. And now I’ll take you back to the detailed review on snow. It is hard to define as it has an all mountain feel but with a tapered directional shape set in a shorter/somewhat wider package.

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 few laps at a demo but hope to own this.

Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-190lbs), Peter (Size 8, 5’11” 185lbs), Jimbo (Size 11, 5’11” 160lbs),

Bindings: Bent Metal Action

Similar Boards (but not the same): Yes Hybrid, Endeavor Scout, Burton Hometown Hero, Gnu Gremlin

Set-Up: 21.5” Wide. 21 front -6 back. Close to Reference

Approximate Weight

Feels pretty normal.

Sizing

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 might be a slight transition in the tip/tail so it isn’t as catchy as traditional camber.

Flex/Pop/Buttering

Mervin does cool things with the boards 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.

Speed

The base has medium glide and the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer can do all 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.

Powder

We didn’t get any powder with the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer but with the taper, what seems like a little early rise in the nose and the decent set back on board it seems like a very competent floater.

Switch

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.

Conclusion

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