im looking for a new board that has great pop but also is pretty forgiving on landings and a soft landing. heard good things about hyperlite murray and liquid force shane...... any others i should be looking into? also i found this board on ebay is it a good board it says its a hyperlite murray but it doesnt look like the murray boards i have seen in the past <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HYPERLITE-WAKEBOARD-MURRAY-142CM-L7-2007-PRO_W0QQitemZ250432519440QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item3a4ef0fd10&amp;_trksid=p3286 .c0.m14&amp;_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A4%7C65%3A12 %7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3 A200" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HYPERLITE-WAKEBOARD-MURRAY-142CM-L7-2007-PRO_W0QQitemZ250432519440QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item3a4ef0fd10&amp;_trksid=p3286 .c0.m14&amp;_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A4%7C65%3A12 %7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3 A200</a>

That is the last model of murray. it had an extreme continuous rocker that tended to be pretty slow. <BR> <BR>the new murray has a true hybrid rocker with a continuous edge and a threestage rocker in the middle (if i got that right?) I have heard good things about it too. as well as the shane <BR> <BR>besides those two i have heard good things about these boards being forgiving: <BR>CWB Marius <BR>CWB Transcend (2009 more specifically) <BR>CWB Faction <BR>Obrien Natural <BR>Obrien Decade <BR>All of the Slingshot Line <BR>All of Company wake's line <BR>and Sine <BR> <BR>Personally, with experience, i would recommend a slingshot board or any other board with flex... ohh and i almost forgot that LF has the ennen which is a hybrid flex thing and ought to land soft <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wakerider111 on May 29, 2009)

there is a 09 145 slingshot response for sale on here.... is that board to big im 6'1 190lbs. also is that a good board. i had been leaning to the 08 murray but what are some opinions

The response is an awesome board, but this could really be said about any board i suppose. <BR> <BR>I am 6 ft 165 lbs <BR>I rode a 145 response once when i demoed a larger one for a larger friend and still had a great time on it. even at the largest size it still felt lighter than the last foam board i rode (2004 hyperlite byerly 137) <BR> <BR>there are no rider weight specs listed for 2008 and 2009, but 2007 response 145 recommends for riders 185 and up <BR> <BR>never ridden the 08 (or 09) murray, but i'd love to try it due to its unique rocker pattern (though i doubt it would sway me from flex in the end personally). there are some threads when the pay-it-forward murray boards were being passed around last year. try reading them for some opinions too. a wealth of comments there for ya from every size of board too <BR> <BR>murray 135 <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/563738.html" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/563738.html</a> <BR>murray 140 <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/562679.html" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/562679.html</a> <BR>murray 145 <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/564734.html" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/564734.html</a>

yep, the pay it forward is going on this year, but with the length of the list I hope to see the 140 murray by labor day....
