I've got the 09 Phil Laroses (the old LTEs), I only rode them for a day, but they were SO much fun, buttery, but still solid underfoot, light and responsive, and had tons or pop, and could carve around with ease, such an awesome ski all around.
i have the hazmats (09/10) and i liked them alot. they weren't the flexiest ski ever but then again i like stiffer skis. Thy're fatter than a normal park ski but i also liked that. the edge just started to pull out about 3 days ago, after skiing on them for 4 days a week the whole season. i owuld give tehm a 8.5/10.
i demoed the hazmats and they were perfect with the transition from park to the whole mountain they were super stiff which was perfect since im a tall ass person. Definitely really right and poppy, with great durability.
I have LTEs, Double Helix, and Genomes. I freaking love all of them. Great durability, the best customer service, bomber warranty, and they try to be as environmentally clean as possible. I demoed a pair of Hazmats, and I think that will be my next purchase. Sick company, Sick product.
I have had a whole series of the Laroses and they were a great ski apart from they just kept breaking. Liberty were very good about warrantying them but after the third pair I just gave up. I've broken quite a few skis in my time but have never had skis break as quickly as the Libertys I had
I had liberty LTE's for most of the season. The skis are fuckin sick. Super poppy. Really stiff on the tails which is perfect for landing, whenever you are gonna land backseat it springs you back on your feets it's awesome. They are also somewhat butterable, enough butter for me for sure! Awesome skis!

I've skied my friend's hazmats and they're pretty sick.
they do well in the park, carve so nicely on groomers, and blast through crud pretty well.
I'd probablly get these for a one ski quiver if i lived somewhere that doesn't get too much pow.
I say screw the cool guy standard procedure. Because when i'm fired up to be in a certain place, or i just pulled off something sick, I'm not gonna be afraid to show it. I'm gonna let people know. I'm gonna CLAIM -(RIP)Shane McConkey
i have LTE's and love them...fantastic jump ski and good all mountain ski as well...I dont do rails all that often so i wasnt looking for anything symmetrical and they are perfect. light, just right amount of stiffness, and as others have said super poppy. also very durable
