Which Slingshot Should I get
I am riding a Company Recruit now and Love it. I do not do a lot of jumping due to a blown knee(need a complete replacement). I do a lot of surface stuff. Which would be better the Recoil or Response. Any other suggestion would be appreciated. I am 6'6 tall and 235lbs. I know I need a 145cm.
Thanks in Advance

The response is a continuous rocker, recoil is a 3 stage. The reflex is kind of in the middle. Hear alot of great things about all of them.

Between those two with not doing much jumping, I would go with the response, but I would look at the shredtown. The recoil is best if you are jumping

I am on the KINE right now and loving it! God for surface stuff a beast on rails, and rides good behind the boat so when you get back to jumping it will do well

+1 for the Kine - best board I've ever ridden. If you go with the Kine, would need to be the '12. I don't think they made it in 145 for '13.

Don, I think you would really like the 145 Response. It is fast and smooth. With you not jumping, there isnt much of a need for a 3 stage rocker.

Yes I figured I would go with a continuous rocker. That is what I am on now. I don't do any rails either. I just ride behind the boat. I would like to jump w2w bit with my knee after 1 or 2 attempts I am done it hurts too much. I am actually setting up a lesson with Derek Cook. I am hoping him can help me get across. Even when i do get I do not thing I will be doing it much. I really appreciate everyone advise.
