Need help picking a 2013 pro model wakeboard
 
Looking for info on picking the best 2013 pro model wakeboard

Last season I rode a Ronix Viva (broken), Ronix Phoenix (broken), LF Shane Hybrid and now I am riding the Ronix District Park Edition (Behind my boat as well).

Here is a list off all of the boards I have ridden (the Ronix District is the best)
Hyperlite
-murray
-franchise
-B-Side
-Union

Liquid Force
-team trip
-2010 Lyman
-Harley
-Shane Hybrid
-Tex

Ronix
-Ibex 2009
-All generations of the Ronix One ATR
-Viva*
-Phoenix S
-Phoenix
-District





Between all of those boards the District is by far the best. You have to demo the board to understand how forgiving this thing is. I have landed so many tricks on the wrong edge or with too much momentum and I am able to ride away easily with this board.There is also a good bit of surface area, so its great for slower speeds at the cable, but it also releases from the wake with a ton of upward momentum behind the boat. Its like the board gets pushed up into your body as you are in the air. It rides high and flies high.

You still have plenty of boards to explore Obrien,Slingshot,CWB,Phlanax and Jobe.Just to name a few.

Ok and that board is not even as high priced as the other boards

Why does it have to be a pro model? Tell us more about your riding style, what you want out of the board, where you usually ride, etc.

I ride behind the boat mostly looking for something that has Serious pop aggressive edge and soft landings I ride ronix one now just looking for something not has heavy easy to spin and flip around on http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/01/28/enege8a5.jpg

Then you def just described a slingshot Hooke/kine or recoil... Super low swing weight and super soft landings with a big ol donkey kick at the wake
Only thing is you have to make the edge work for you, you've gotta lock it up it won't do it for you, I came off a ronix one and I'm not looking back

Yea I like the slingshot Lyman

Nordicron 01-27-2013 2:56 PM

Not often that I agree with Simple J but I have to say wow to the Slingshot Hooke! Picked one up in Dec so only got to ride it a few times before I was forced to winterize. Serious pop and just so sweet feeling on the water. That board has me longing for spring!

Btw what's that wake and how's the boat loaded?

2012 Axis A22 all factory hard tanks full two 450 plug n play back v drive lockers and a 1000 arrow bag up front auto set wedge down http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/01/28/u9edy5ap.jpg

Another vote for Slingshot, I loved the ride of the Ronix boards and their warranty was excellent but I broke 5 in a season. Lyman has been awesome so far..You still have plenty of other brands/options to explore though.

Has anyone tried the phalanx boards if so could you give some Input on how they Perform

jburbo 02-05-2013 9:02 AM

Seth, I ride the Phalanx CW385. It has a loose feel, but locks on edge when you want it to. Good, consistent pop, and nice soft landings. Plus it's pretty much indestructible. Hit me up if you want more info!

jtiblier123 02-11-2013 8:13 AM

Slingshot is a great brand, and I have only ridden the recoil so I cannot say much, but it seems to me that you are looking for a traditional boat board, although flex boards have become prevalent behind the boat, they ride very different than your ronix one. I wouldnt go with slingshot just because you already ride a more traditional board (Ronix One) and slingshot boards are anything but traditional. They are great boards, but definitely takes a couple of sets to get used to.
Ronix District is where it's at.

MattAlz33 02-11-2013 8:30 AM

Hyperlite Marek, Bio or Nova; fast, pop, and soft landings!

What about the new Ronix Code 22 Board .... Feedback? Big guy looking for some straight vertical pop. Tried the Ronix one and was not a huge fan, found the LF Watson to be best so far...
