Lib Tech Lost Twin Rocket 2018 Review by The Good Ride
The Lib Tech Lost Twin Rocket isn’t technically a twin but it sure did feel like it after riding the way more directional Lost Rocket. We don’t usually get to see the detailed specs at the demos but man, I never would have guessed that the Twin Rocket was soo wide. It felt mid/wide but not 26.9cm super wide. It also felt a lot more like a twin than it’s set back tapered directional shape would have you believe. We had a little more fun going out and making directional turns with the Lost Rocket and it felt a little more dynamic underfoot than the Lost Twin Rocket. However, the Lost Twin Rocket is good for those that like to get surfy and carve up groomers but also take it fakie/switch often. It really feels one part surfy, one part directional freeride and one part mountain freestyle all wrapped up into an atypical super wide shape.

The perfect board for me
My preferred shape after going through many boards is camber until the outside of the bindings and rocker tip and tail. I really have been focusing on carving the last couple years and even wide boards were not keeping my toes/heels out of the snow pack. When I got this I switch from a Jones Ultra Twin (Which was also an amazing board, thanks tGR) and there was no turning back. I have been riding it all summer in our indoor ski area (Biggest in Europe) and still have yet to find it's limit yet. Just the turning sensation is awesome, even on the icy indoor slopes. Yes, it's big and wide and slower edge to edge but you can really link big, deep turns together. I was a big perplexed when tGR guys said it could not hold an edge but I think that was more binding then board. I put Union Falcors on it and have only the contrary experience when turning, I can't push it hard enough...yet. Lately have used it to jump and butter more and it's again not the easiest but when you hit the transition right it sends you and your stable. When you press it, it's locked in. I am sure just with the shape and surface area it will float in powder once winter comes as well, so stoked for that. So if you can handle it, it's amazing and can do everything regardless of it's big size. Great board and hopefully this is the last one I buy for a while as I want to take it everywhere.
