Watson Hybrid vs BOB vs SS Lyman
Hi, everybody.

I can't make a decision what board is better for me.

My choice is:
- Liquid Force Watson Hybrid 2013
- Liquid Force B.O.B 2013
- Slingshot Lyman 2013

I ride:
- 60% cable (raley, S-bend etc. in a flat)
- 30% boats
- 10% kickers

Be so kind, help me to do a right choice.

Best regards

Between the Watson and the Bob I thought the Bob gave me a little more bite in throwing the air tricks. I haven't seen a Lyman up close, but the apparent lack of channels down the sides makes me think it would not do as well for your air tricks.

no experience on any of these, but i thought the Lyman did indeed have channels on the sides than ran through the center of the board.
i know the 2012 version did. the changes for 2013 i think were pretty minimal. the 2013 lyman pics are difficult to make out for the bottom features because of the black base and the video seems to focus more on the tip and tail too.

the lyman has additional holes to adjust the fin placement which might be nice for the air tricks?

Also... maybe you meant to specify BOB GRIND anyway, but the grind version will stand-up to the park better

BOB, no question about it

Another vote for the BOB

Does anyone know how the SS Lyman rides compared to the LF Lyman. The LF is hands down my favorite shape
