I am looking at getting a new board for christmas but don't have a local shop around here to test a bunch of boards, I need some opinions. I currently ride the Trip 133 now and need a bigger board (I'm 5'8", 160). I really like the trip but I want to step down the speed 1 notch, and want a 3 stage rocker.

I have rode some friends' PS3, Substance, and Shane.

I felt like the PS3 was way too slow and sat real deep in the water, which I didn't like. The pop was great and tracking was great though.

The substance felt faster than the PS3, but slow on initiating turns into the wake. The pop on the substance was also great, as well as the tracking.

The shane felt the most like the trip, maybe even faster. The pop and tracking were great on this board too.

From what I've read about the Watson I think it would be the kind of board I'm looking for. How would ya'll compare the Watson to the Substance, PS3, and Shane? Any other opinions would be great too! Thanks
