what are the pros and cons of each board and can you get the lf armada with grip

lovin_the_wake 07-06-2008 6:54 PM

well those are 2 completely different boards. imo the Vinyl is basically a heavier better looking Catalyst 2.0 and I don't know a whole lot about the Armada but personally I would pick the Vinyl over the Armada. If you can demo either board I would definitely do it

eviltweak 07-06-2008 7:00 PM

does the 2.0 have the kick tail like the vynil

lovin_the_wake 07-06-2008 7:38 PM

The Vinyl has more pronounced kick tails

eviltweak 07-06-2008 7:43 PM

ok thanks i am really undecided between the two

lovin_the_wake 07-06-2008 7:50 PM

I know a lot more people that ride an Armada than I do that ride a Vinyl if that helps but imo the Vinyl is a better board but that's just my opinion . . . What do you ride now ?

eviltweak 07-06-2008 7:53 PM

i have a scape 112 i but i am looking to upgrade to composite

lovin_the_wake 07-06-2008 8:18 PM

just curious is there any specific reason you want a composite ?

eviltweak 07-06-2008 9:09 PM

my scape started comming apart so my dad said lets up grade you to a composite board and he really likes hyperlite

lovin_the_wake 07-07-2008 7:18 AM

personally I prefer wood (hee hee yeah that's right) over composite. Don't judge all wood skates on your experience with the scape alone. It's all personal preference some swear by composite some swear by wood. The scape is a flat deck isn't it ? Have you ever tried a wood concave ?

eviltweak 07-07-2008 8:09 AM

no i havent do you know any where i could demo any thing around sacramento

lovin_the_wake 07-07-2008 8:36 AM

hmmmm that I don't know there are 3 places around my lake that let you demo boards you'd probably just have to call around and see

lovin_the_wake 07-07-2008 9:52 AM

Here's a Vinyl on ebay <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/Hyperlite-2008-108-Vinyl-Wakeskate-Mint_W0QQitemZ180262382685QQihZ008QQcategoryZ15272 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/Hyperlite-2008-108-Vinyl-Wakeskate-Mint_W0QQitemZ180262382685QQihZ008QQcategoryZ15272 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a>

Call me crazy, but I prefer a composite board. I rode the Armada all of last year, and it is a very good wake to wake board, but I wasn't feelin' it out in the flats. I'd look at a Ronix Zariel, that's what I upgraded to, and it's friakin' sick.

lovin_the_wake 07-08-2008 7:14 AM

I will have a Devotid Passion sooner or later . . . Devotid = Pure Sex <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

eviltweak 07-10-2008 8:08 PM

does the armada have good pop i already have trouble ollieing so i need all of the help i can get

wakemitch 07-13-2008 10:45 AM

Carson, if youre in the sac area i have some boards i can let you try out. most shops dont demo skates and almost none demo wood skates. we should ride someday. i live in vallejo. <BR> <BR>also you should check out the next norcalwake.com convergence. its an all wakeskate free ride event at camp far west in october.

eviltweak 07-13-2008 7:33 PM

what boards do u have

eviltweak 07-13-2008 8:43 PM

im in vallejo rite now

surfnsun 07-13-2008 8:45 PM

Hey Carson. <BR>I got an Armada about 3 months ago. I too have been using the Scape for the past year as my main board. The Armada has def taking some getting used to. The built in fins/channels was the major hang up i've had. Like Caleb said out in the flats its not as awesome as wake-to-wake. I still use my Scape more than the Armada. As far as ollies go it seemed to pop the same for me as the Scape, the Byerly skate has proven to be the best board i've ollied. (Also own but never gets used... can't seem to let go of the Scape).

eviltweak 07-13-2008 8:58 PM

ok so the armada is out but i still want demo a comp

wakemitch 07-14-2008 12:47 AM
