Anyone know what the price of the 09 boards are going to be average? I am looking to get into a setup. Coming from a Covin, what do you guys think of the recoil? I'v never ridden a Slingshot but I can demo one before I buy. <BR> <BR>I know there's tons of threads on slingshots out there, but just shoot me as much info as you can/want on these boards...im DYING to try one out. thanks!

The MSRP on the 08 boards were $429-$449, and the MSRP on the 08 bindings were $399. I would assume that they are in the same pricing structure. <BR> <BR>I absolutely love my Recoil 142. I came from riding the Obrien Valhalla and the LF Shane. <BR> <BR>The recoil really likes to go wake-to-wake. I take a lot of my tricks into the flats, and I was having a little trouble with it at first. Once I got used to it, I just don't know how I could ever go back. <BR> <BR>The thing that surprised me the most was how soft the landings were. It is a really weird (but nice) feeling. I did a roll to revert and cased the wake (expecting to fall), but it absorbed a lot of the shock, and I rode away clean. <BR> <BR>I have been riding the recoil finless a lot lately. As long as the water is smooth, it has plenty of edge on it. The butter slides are just way too much fun to put the fins back on. <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/627294.jpg" alt="Upload">

Hijack - (of my own thread) <BR> <BR>So are you riding in Menom on Sunday at any time or no? I just talked to Sean and he said he was going to talk with you. He said he wanted to ride "all day" so whatever that means. Shoot me a Pm or something man, I would really like to give your board a shot before, and if I pull the trigger on a slingshot. BTW...know anyone that would be interested in a Ronix setup?
