I ordered a Murray 140 with new boots (set up through a backorder to be sure I get one of the first out of production (I want to get a few runs in...because our season will not last and will be winding down quickly by the time I get the set up). I ordered blindly..because I already got the low down on what the ride will be like. Saw the pic someone posted on here from the paper that caught up with Murray at Lake Shasta. So I am getting the gear without even knowing what the boots or the color of the board will look like. Risk worth taking. Unless.....Entrust Clothing...you could send me a pic or description of the 140. I am getting the white boots...thats all I know. And that Murray was riding the white board with the grey triangle....I am thinking that he was on the 135 board because typically that is what he rides. So any information for a impatient boarder would be helpful.

entrust, you have a catalog? we just did the shoot at shasta 3 weeks ago. i would be impressed if they put together the thing yet, but i'm in denmark right now and slightly out of the loop. would love to see it though.
will do some checking in through email. i will be home in two days anyhoo.
Scott, that is raddest, yes i said raddest, things i have seen on here in a long time. i am super pumped on the ride, and yeah, i ride the 135. word to big bird.

I will work on that and on my toeside 180, but I think it's only a matter of doing them a couple of times, and then they will be "mine".

Say Hi to Niels. And of course we hope to see you in Denmark again. Next time we will promise you better weather

Thanks Shaun!...So the board I am getting (140) will not be white. The 135 is the white like in the photo. But the other options I heard will be black, or grey. I have been real nosey with the peeps in Seattle. Travis hinted way back in February on how cool the new shape is. So I am stoked! Like I said...got my order in and I will be on it, even if the water temps are 50 by the time it arrives, I will get my run in. I heard the boots are totaly Rad...yes I said Rad too.

I've been waiting almost 3 years for JD to get his 'own' board. It seemed like they pumped the Drive as his board, but he always rode the Premier that year. Any specs on the BSide? Abrupt continuous or subtle 3-stage?

By summertime (ride900) on Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 10:21 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
Is it me or do Gregs shapes look the same as some of the shapes he did on DU back in the day. I forget the board but it was Blue it came out like 9 years ago and had the same exact tail as the Syn, and the Tribute. Maybe its just me but if Hyperlite was looking for cutting edge they should have found someone that still wakeboards to shape their boards. I thought all Greg did was golf.

Proho...I sensed sarcasm...and so looked at the bindings to chuckle along and didn't see anything? Then I looked closer. Under the specs...you had me rolling. Hey dude, hold this for me. No prob man, I got the 'stash pocket' right here. Hit it!

By Ryan Morris (morty) on Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 10:33 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
Just because a board has the same tail shape doesn't mean it is the same board. There are boards from completely different companies that have similar tip/tail, it does not make it the same board. Think about it, there are only so many shapes you can do with a tip and tail. If the boards are starting to resemble some Double Up shapes that would not be a bad thing, DU had simple, clean, good boards, you do not need all of the clutter on the bottom of a board to be good, simple is better.

its got channels shaved out on the top to make it lighter.. we weighed it in at 5.5 pounds. a whole pound lighter than the lf axis.

Oke so the sub vi isn't that light, because the byerly board 2008 should be 4,5 pounds and it isn't carbon. So that sub vi sucks, it isn't light at al

have to compare the Sub VI to the Byerly when they come out. I heard from a VERY good source, that the carbon board is awesome and rides like no other board. I would have to believe that it would ride differently, being a different material. Everything I own that is made of Carbon fiber is pricey...but durable. Stand the test of time.

I heard that the Byerly actually weighs in a little over 7 lbs. Not sure where Alliance got their 4.5 lbs out of the traditional foam core. If that was the case, you would have to ask about the durability. Apples to apples when they both come out...put them on a scale.

its funny because the sub vi was suppose to weigh in at 3 pounds through designing stage.

you cant know the weight until the final product come out with graphics & fins... so we will see what the byerly really weighs.

ive heard that is will be a 7 pound board.

Thanks Entrust! About Sub VI - i think its not 3ds shape, cause Rustys promodel is 3ds. Two same shapes with continuous rocker in one line it is absurd, i think. Maybe the Sub is reborn of Parks board?(i hope on it) Correct me if im wrong...

Boris...same bottom config for the Sub6 as the 3DS. So they do share the same shape. But what I heard from Hyperlite is that the ride is different because of the materials and they way it is constructed. So it will have a different feel than that of the 3DS. It is an abrupt continous rocker. Thanks for the pic...that is cool.

Chase.....I agree..hope you don't get into trouble. But with the same token.....this is sure creating a stir for the new up coming product. last year Ronix was all the buzz.....I think Hyperlite will have the buzz, especially with this new Sub6 board. Just wait and see, I guess. Be interesting what Slingshot comes up with too.

Scott I am with you. I have been on the 3ds all season. If that Sub6 is as light as a honeycomb board I will be all over it. I used to help design and shape boards for surflite wakeboards. They were vacum bagged and cooked in a oven with prepreg and carbon. Back in 94 they came in at about 4.5 so I know it can be done. The owner died in a skydiving crash. So it was to hard to keep it going. JOE UMALI had a board. I know he can test for its weight.

That looks like a full on snowboard boot. Seems really tall.

Anymore pics of the new HYPE gear. I was on vacation for a couple weeks. Gotta see this new stuff. I know in a couple weeks it will all be out in the open.....but sneak peeks are cool. 08 should be a very interesting year for gear....by the looks of things we have sampled already.

FYI....Murray board weighs 7 lbs. The byerly board actually weighed on a scale at 11 lbs. So Alliance had the wrong info. Thats why they pulled the new 08 byerly off alliancewake. The new Sub6 is stinken light. It has the same shape as the 3DS bottom...so abrupt continous rocker. But the board is carbon fiber. It is going to be awesome. But the Murray is going to rip too. I can not wait to get mine. another FYI on the Murray board....the 135 is the one with the white top deck, the 140 is the grey top deck(mine) and of course the black is the 145. I bet we will see more after the Surf Expo. The new Murray and the Sub6 are made right here in the states.....SSWWWEEEETTTTT! So stoked!

Scott,

Don't be fooled by the "carbon top sheet". Adding the "carbon top sheet" can't really lesson the weight of the board that much.

I don't know much about the nova core, but my guess is that it has more to do with the weight than a "top sheet".

Tim

i think the murray gear is fugly this year..in fact the only gear i care for so far is the imperial byerly and premier...glad i just picked up a pair of 06 murray bindings with an 06 141 premier for under 350 bucks..gotta love ebay...will be checking out the lf/c-dub lineup this year!

11 lbs..isnt that alot....picking up the 07 byerly now and i would guess it weighs 7-8 lbs?

i was dissapointed in the era, but the old shape is still there and it looks so sick. I was pumped to see the apex was the new era(old shape)

ryan...guess everyone is entitled to their opinion. I like simple graphics. Tired of the tattoo art work and the transformer stuff. It is a wakeboard...not a tat or a robot. Just my opinion. Tim...the top sheet is not the only carbon component. Just have to wait and see I guess. But I did get my information from a very good source. And the Sub6 is definitely lighter than that of the Byerly boards. The Murray board will be real light as well. The fact that they are USA made is incentive enough. Own a china board...the quality is just not the same at all. Top end CWB gear is USA made too. So it would be between the top end Hyperlite vs CWB gear for me. Again, just my opinion. Notice..I said top end gear. The lower or intermediate gear is made over seas. I think ALL bindings are too, no matter what brand you go with.

scott-you are correct everyone likes different stuff..whats the new hl sub6 gonna retail for? thats sweet they are being made here..i know all of my bindings say"made in china"...explains why my buddy and i have sent back two pairs of byerlys one set of proofs and one set of murrays this summer.

yhea I wish they would make the bindings here in the states too. I have had many things go wrong with my bindings. Never had a problem getting them replaced. But is is getting old. I have replaced my Cells three times. Got a nice nick in my Frontier board. Just had it leaned up against the seat in my boat...fell to the floor and got the nick in the top sheet. My old belmont (usa made..before outsourcing to china) would have not ended up with a nick in it with the same scenario. USA stuff is just better. I heard the Sub6, Murray, The new Premier, and the Imperial will be US made. The Imperial last year was US made. The premier and murray were not. So they are bringing back production to the states. Like most companies....cheap is not always the way to go if your constantly replacing the equipment for customers. Good news is...The bindings will be made overseas, but DC is making them for Hyperlite this year. So the quality should be better. I know the Murray board might look like the old Double up boards....but I was garanteed....it's not the same board. Ryan..the new Sub 6 is going to be pricey. I heard between 800 and 900 bucks retail. also heard it will be a limited production board. They will sell...even for that price. I have talked with someone who has been riding it through the development stages. There simply is no other board that rides like this board. I ordered the Murray 140...but might change my mind once I hear more about the Sub6 getting demoed at the Surf expo this next week. I have rode the 3DS and loved it. So I know I wont be disappointed with the Sub6.

DC isn't making the Hyperlite boots, they're just being made in the same factory...

Your right Scott boards made in the US are just better quality.

But I dont understand why would a wake company have a shoe company design wake boots. Shoe's don't get near the abuse the wake boots take. You need engineers to design wake boots. My 2 cents.

DC has nothing to do with with design of the boots. The guys over at Hyperlite already said there is no affiliation with DC at all. they're just using the same factory that DC happens to use for construction of the boots... hyperlite does all the designing.

ok my bad....DC is not making hyperlite boots....their factory is. Gotcha! hmmm. Design and engineering done by Hype. OK...Boots still made overseas. would like to see them bring that to production here in the US like their top end boards. I got the DC rumor here on wakeworld....not from Hype. So many people said DC was making the boots. But I can see how that could get confused.

DC makes snowboard boots so, similar constructions and materials. You'd probably be surprised with just how many boots are made by the same factories for various companies. I know Fox boots are made in Italy where all the best boots are made.....the factory makes many other lines as well as Fox.

the byerly monarch weighs 6.5 pounds not 11. and the boots are soft and flexy side to side and stiffer front to back for better support, also very light, the entire setup weighs under 10 pounds. just to clear the air on that one

Thanks soiled undies. Welcome to the forum. We here at Wakeworld will let you know how much the setup weighs after we get a chance to weigh it. Till then work on building up your reputation with good posts that are helpful.

all i did was make a post to help out so people didn't have incorrect knowledge, someone said the murray weighs 7 but the byerly weighs 11. I was just pointing out that this was false, the murray and the monarch weigh roughly the same due to the new core they both have. I was just trying to help, not get flamed. I had nothing but good intentions.

soiled....not tryin to school anyone...but if you got that info from Alliancewake...that was incorrect data. Notice they have pulled it from the site. The info I got came from a VERY good source. maybe the Byerly weighs as much as the Murray...we'll see like Jerm said. But the Sub6 is definitely going to be lighter than that Byerly board. again like Jerm said a weight to weight on all boards will be posted. I would think rather soon after the Surf Expo this week. That is when all the 08 goods will be exposed. Who knows maybe CWB or Liquid Force will have something even lighter than the new Hyperlite Sub 6. But from what I heard...not only is the Sub6 stinken light...it is a tough board. Seems like some of these light boards lately have been having issues with durability.

not sure if this has already been asked or not, but is the murray boot coming in white and black?

dudes u guys need to check out the tribute it is gonna be making some noise if it already hasn't the thing is sick definitly the lightest hyperlite ive ever held and it has hardly any swing weight the step down molded fins are also a really cool feature it may be one of the cheaper models but give it a chance also yes gregg nelson did have a huge part in the designing of the board but he's also been working with mike schwenne on it to in my opinion it's mike's signature board but anyways check it out it won't disapoint

Ryan....the boots posted above^^ are the Murray and the sub6 boots. You can get them in black or white. So that is a big nodder bud...your choice. Entrust...I can read the print on the Sub6 pic you posted...but can't read the print on the Murray board or the boots. Could you please repost those pics just a tad larger so I can get the full description. Thanks!

I picked up the Sub6 board this weekend at a competition. It was very light with 07 3DS boots on it. The owner said it was stiffer and rode different than the 3DS but along the same lines. It was crazy to see how thin the board got at the cutout places. Interesting stuff.

Big heavy did you get a look at the 08 Murray? I am real curious about that set up.
