does anyone know anything about the new byerly board that is kinda like the bi-level? i saw a picture of byerly holding one at the expo

yeah, its a molded bi level. Imagine a bilevel with all the gaps filled in and concave of the bilevels

see, but if all of the gaps are filled in, then you aren't benefitting from the unique flex pattern that bi-level has. It's just a heavier wakeskate with a deeper concave. <BR> <BR>The way I see it, it's a nice idea to try and have the deep concave a bi-level is allowed to have, but it's kind of misleading to market it like it has the pop of a bi-level, when really it's a bulky ass wakeskate with a deep concave. It does not have that flex and believe me, that flex makes a HUGE difference. The true bi-levels are so responsive and move WITH you. <BR> <BR>Anyway, try one out. It's nice to try something different, but just because you have more to leverage off of doesn't mean it's going to act liek a bi-level. You're just dealing with more material in the long run, and you don't have that energy to help compensate for the extra weight. PEace!!

hmm...waterlogged bi-level versus a double-thick compression deck...I'm gonna guess that neither will blow out from under your feet.
