Ronix William good for cable?
 
I know it can take rails and sliders but is the shape and core desirable for cable? I know it's supposed to not flex but I've heard it does a little. How does it edge? Is it stable? I guess I'm just looking for a general description of this boards behavior on the water. Debating between a William, Phoenix project, and a hyperlite union at the moment

If you're looking for a strictly cable board, the Phoenix Project S or the Union would be better than the William. If you are riding boat and cable, the Phoenix Project S would be the best of the 3.

I've heard that El Von Viedel Schnook from Ronix is a blast on the cable. Wood core, bit flexy on the tip and tail, sharper edge than Phoenix and small channels on the bottom.

I ride the william at the cable and behind boat and i love it behind the boat at the cable its kinda flexy but not eenough to get crazy presses on the rail it is awesome on the landings off thee kickers though its super durable and behind the boat its explosive. but if youre going to be riding cable more than boat go with the bill or pheonix project s. but if you only hit the cable a few times a year go with the william!

Well I already have a great boat board (2013 ronix one) but I guess if I'm buying a board for cable I would want to be able to take it behind the boat too. The reason I don't want a cable specific board is because I love that nice mellow surfy feel a board like the One gives me. The William and Phoenix were at the top of my list because they have more rocker than cable boards but are not slow in the water. Not sure about the speed on the Phoenix but How slow could it be if so many people love it? So, essentially I'm looking for a durable, flexy board I can take to the cables whenever, but if I feel like mixing things up when I'm out on the boat ill be able to take it out there too without having to ride a board that is more geared towards cable. Behind the boat I like a variable rail, a nice and surfy mellow board that slices through the water aggressively when I need it to, solid pop, usually a 3 stage, and soft landings. For cable I love all of the same features but with an edge that I can really dig into the water heading for a kicker, not necessarily a 3 stage,of course flex, and durability goes without saying. Ill probably end up with a Phoenix or a bill since the bill is a little flexier than the William.
