|Does anyone know if there are any differences in last year Ricky G. compared to this years? Besides the color change in some of the newer ones.|
|I THINK that the 138 will be a true 138 (instead of the 136) and I also believe they are going to have a 142 and a 134 or something like that. Maverick would know....|
|Travis, thats the 05's they aren't out yet. The new one (black one) is the same shape as the older (white) one, except for being black. They're same shape both 136. |
|Ok, my bad. |
|No Worries. |
|So basically the 03 and 04 are exactly the same, right? Besides color, which I know some 04's are white and some are black. |
|Right, but I think not many 03's were made, not sure about that one, Mav will clear that up. But yes all the gatorboards gonzo pro's have been the same shape so far, no differance.|
|mav - if you read this, will you check your email please? thanks|
|The black graphic is the graphic that the new board will have, they continued the old shape into 04, but are making a new shape that will have 3 sizes: 132, 138, and 142. They sold more of the white graphic than expected adn instead of having more made they just had the black made since a limited number of white would cost mosre than a large number of black, thus causing a unnecesary price increas. From whatr i have heard the new shape will be out in the next few months but they will offer both shapes.|
|To clarify what I think Wkerat said.... |
As of right now the 05 black board has the same shape as the 04 white board, but they are coming out with a new shape for the black board in a few months which will included 132, a true 138, and 142 sizes. They will be offering both shapes for the new black board.
This is comparing the 04 and 05, however. I do believe the 03 and 04 boards have the same shapes.
Here is Mavericks full name:
Maverick LTD (maverick_gear)
Are you looking to buy the RG? I just got mine, I'm dying to try it but I need bindings first. Nice RG1s for that.
|Travis got it, sorry about all the typos in my last post, I was in a rush, lol. Mainly, the current (03/04) shape will also be continued, but under a seperate name. They just released the graphic early for cost issues...One thing I am not sure of is if the new shape is an early 05 or a late 04 model.|
|Yo people heres the skinny, |
the current black board is a 136 same as last year just reversed colors.
the 142 is gonna be out hopefully within the month of may it has a new graphic and new shape.
next there will be a 133ish in the new shape with a new graphic, then a new 138 will be released most likely around expo id like to think before but i highly doubt it.
once the new 138 shape is out the graphic will be dedicated to it only.
the 136 will become something new maybe a team series or a pro model for someone else. its still one of the best shapes ever.
in the midst of all this there will be a randy harris 137 coming out as well as a leslie graphic on a shape yet to be determined.
theres no reason for the whites gonz to cease production other than the fact that its now 2004 and time for new stuff, i suspect however thats not the last well see of that graphic or some form of it.
