I know these get excessive but... <BR> <BR>I haven't seen a direct comparison between the Watson, Shane, and Lyman all at once. I'm interested in speed/hold while on edge, looseness (is that a word?) while off edge, pop (up and out), and softness of landing. An example using a 1-5 scale: <BR> <BR>Watson: speed/hold 4, loose 3, pop up 5, pop out 3, landing 3 <BR> <BR>Shane: speed/hold 4, loose 5, pop up 4, pop out 4, landing 5 <BR> <BR>Lyman: speed/hold 5, loose 3, pop up 3, pop out 5, landing 4 <BR> <BR>Anyone game for a quick rating? <BR> <BR>Also, I wear size 12 shoes, would it be better to get 11-12 or 12-13 for Shane CTs?

I wear shane 11-12 and I am a size 12. At first they are a little tight and I wanted to take them back but after the third set they are perfect. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by burberry03 on September 19, 2008)

I have not rode the shane but here is how I would rank the lyman and watson: <BR> <BR>Watson(finless): speed/hold 5, loose 3, pop up 5, pop out 4, landing 5 <BR> <BR>Lyman(finless): speed/hold 4, loose 3, pop up 2, pop out 5, landing 3

Thanks - I saw the one on the Lyman thread, just looking for more opinions between the three. I can get a good deal, but won't have the chance to ride ahead of time. I had made up my mind on a Shane, but lately I've seen a lot of talk about the Watson and Lyman. I am basing my decision on the experience of others so I was looking for a more organized opinion.

simon &amp; billy, <BR>the lyman doesnt pop you just straight out. its more like up and out. i can go bigger on w2w with the lyman than i can on any other board

So how about throwing some more LF stuff in this thread...I seriously think that it gets confusing after a company offers more than 3-4 boards. <BR> <BR>How does the Trip and Axis compare to these? <BR> <BR>Oh, lets name some other boards from LF <BR>Omega, Press, PS3, Watson, Shane, Lyman, Trip, Axis, Substance, Team....I know I'm forgetting some...Very confusing. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by robandrus on September 21, 2008)

By the way, my ratings were just an example - not real numbers since I am looking to buy and don't have the chance to ride them all. <BR> <BR>I know there are a ton of people who have ridden LF boards that can do a direct comparison!
