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.
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. 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.
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.

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.

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 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.
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.
the board is not super damp but can ride all day without falling apart in messy snow.
The edge hold is less than most people would expect from Mervin and there is almost no disruption.
Medium to medium fast turn initiation with the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer. I could easily turn through bumps if I needed to.
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.
We didn’t get any powder with the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer but When set all the way back you can get a setback from center of 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 seems like a very competent floater. I’m hoping to know more when the snow falls.
Very doable for 9mm of taper and we had fun taking the Lib Tech Lost Quiver Killer switch.
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.
