Powder skiing Lib-Tech style.
The Lib Tech Fully Functional Five NAS Ski floats and surfs the powder in the freestyle sort of way only Lib Technicians could dream up. The long-entry rockered nose keeps you balanced and out of the back seat when the going gets deep, and when you get stuck with nothing but hardpack at the end of the day, utilize the Magne-Traction serrated sidecut like a chainsaw and turn that ice into a delicious snow cone.
- Lib Tech's all-terrain reCURVE rocker is comprised of a dynamic early-rise rocker in the tip and tail with a short camber underfoot for forgiving turn initiation and ample float
- Magne-Traction provides serrated steak-knife edge grip due to the unique serrated sidecut shape for incredible edge hold in icy conditions
- Sustainable aspen core with triaxial fiber is snappy, responsive, and a favorite of Mother Earth
- Built with Lib Tech's perfected sandwich construction for high-end performance and durability
- Bio-plastic top sheet is made of castor beans—with the power of the magical fruit on your side, anything is possible
- Soy-based elastomer sidewalls are durable, non-toxic, and sustainable
- 115mm underfoot for happy hunting in the powder fields

My first couple of days on these was in wet, heavy snow and they perform amazing. I am 5'6 and am riding the 185's love these skis. I recommend these for any backcountry, slope style skiers.

I'm 6ft 150lbs 17 years old. I ski at Stevens pass. Should I go with the POW of FFF ?
Anything helps. (Also What size)
So, I ride Stevens as well, and I live in the trees. 6'0" 165. If you're spending a lot of time in tight trees and bumps, the FFF is probably the right choice. That small turning radius will make the ski very nimble side to side. I haven't actually ridden it yet, but the shape is the same as the S7, JJ, Bentchetler, and that's what a lot of skiers like about those skis.
The POW is a great ride, if you're into charging everything. They are like a caged animal, and they don't like being asked to slow down. I found them cumbersome in bumps and trees. But for ripping a steep open face at top speed, there's nothing better.
I WISH lib tech made the FFF in a 190 with a radius of 20m or so. That would be a perfect quiver of one, IMO.
Lib Tech? Where are we with this?
