Board advice
New to the site and found some great info here. I'm old (45) beginner, 6', 175# and have mainly ridden a CWB Pure 141. This past week I rode a Ronix Ibex 139 and a Ronix One 142. I loved how the Ibex locked in on edge and was able to go wtw heelside consistently on it. Didn't like the Ibex as much for surface spins and slides. Liked how the One lands softer, spins and slides easier. I don't feel as comfortable going wtw on the One. I am riding behind a X2 at 65' with factory ballast full. Ride about 21mph on One and 23 on Ibex. Any recommendations for a board that locks in on edge like the Ibex, but lands softer and breaks loose for spins/slides like the One? Thanks in advance for the help.

Lyman is out on demo, but I should be able to try it soon. I had stayed away from the bside because of cost. Isn't it like $650? I'll try to find a Marius demo. A friend recommended Byerly Assualt. Anybody riding it? Thanks for the help.
