Alright, did the back to back comparison today w/my Cassette 41 concave.. The Casette is a little more stable than the K39 and I felt like I had more control on it. The K39 feels like a skate board to me (I'm 6'3" and 190 lbs) so it was a litte small. I could easily do butter 180s and 3's on it, I almost landed a few shuvits on it too. The K39 seemed more oriented towards surface tricks and the Cassette felt more secure on w2w's.. I think the size had a bit to do w/it too.. I really didn't notice the difference between the foam and grip tape as I was wearing shoes.. I can only ollie a wakesktate about 5-6 inches, it felt the same to me on both boards, the concave was a little easier because it was longer. <BR> <BR>BTW, I'm blowing these boards out on Ebay right now.. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <a href="http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewSellersOtherItems&amp;include=0& amp;userid=parkcityxj&amp;sort=3&amp;rows=25&amp;s ince=-1&amp;rd=1" target="_blank">http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewSellersOtherItems&amp;include=0& amp;userid=parkcityxj&amp;sort=3&amp;rows=25&amp;s ince=-1&amp;rd=1</a>

jay, <BR>thanks for sharing how it rides, i actuatly asked the question because i am bidding on one of those. my name for ebay is rockjrnewb07. oh i will be out of town when the bidding ends and i will have no access to a computer so the payment will be delayed until june 1st

No worries. Another thing to add. They hold up really well.. My buddy has rode his about 15 times w/no signs of usage.. My cassette w/maybe 30 days on it looks like it's 100 years old, the paint is peeling and the bottom has tons of cracks. <BR> <BR>Oh yeah, I made a mistake listing them. All the skates I have are silver not blue. I thought I was getting a mixture of colors, but I didn't. <BR> <BR>I see you're from Wilmington. My mom and a bunch of my bros live there. I'm going to try and make it back there this summer sometime. I may have to hit you up for a pull. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by parkcityxj on May 26, 2004)
