Non-Flex Cable Board
What is your favorite choice of a non-flex cable board and why? Thanks!

I really like the Ronix Bill board for cable and boat. Super fun to ride. Very responsive, slides well and lands soft off kickers. WIth the the 3 stage and slightly soft layup, it is also fun on rails. By far the best board for boat and cable I have ridden.

This could be a controversy, but my overall favorite no flex board is the Ronix Phoenix Soft. Great cable board if you don't do a ton of tech air tricks. Awesome feel for rails, with the new softer layup you can really feel the rails under you. It also lands super smooth off kickers.

The only controversial thing you're doing is calling the Phoenix S a non-flex board.

it's not, its a "stored energy board" quote ronix :p (blows raspberries) haha. whatever right?

no personal experience with many rail boards, but the new LF Tex is making headlines. give it a go. it is based on the witness shape which was hugely popular.

Haha I was going to throw stored energy in my post above, but I decided to leave it out. Its hard to say what boards are considered flex and what are not.

The LF Tex is awesome on the cable! Forgot to add that to my list. I personally only do a handful of air tricks, so I prefer to ride finless, but the tex is a great cable board! It does break free rather easily which I was very happy about. But overall a really good cable board

Just Whip it man, Whip it good

all boards flex A LITTLE, just depends how much

eubanks01 03-13-2012 6:51 PM

Yeah, thinking about the Whip. Also interested in the Tex but heard it was a bit tight. I've got a flex board now I ride finless but would love to try out a more traditional board (with some more grip) to do air tricks and such. I'm not good enough anyway to really press that hard so I don't think I will loose much going away from a flex board on the rails.

So options thus far:
SS Whip
LF Tex
Ronix Bill

Anybody ridden the Tex yet?

So many to try. Liquid force alone offers so many boards with the grind base. The ps3, the rogue, the witness, the tex, the watson hybrid, the peak, the shane hybrid, harley, might be forgetting some but there's a grind base for pretty much every model. Ronix with the viva, the bill, the one, anything with their atr? Or whatever syntered base they call it. Hyperlite, the process, the clash, not sure of any others from them. Jobe jusut started selling stuff too in the us. I'm probably missing a bunch but there's a lot to try out there

I rode it at the cable. It's pretty stiff and tracky. Not my kinda board. It would probably be nice for air tricks because it's got fairly big fins and it's a lot stickier than most cable boards, but it just felt awkward buttering around on the surface.

ctrl rx.

amazing for air tricks, solid on the rails, and they feel perfect off of kickers too. best all around board in my opinion.
