So, I bought an 07 Murray at the start of the season, just looking for something to kinda progress on and be a step up from my good ol' O'Brien Ambush. For the most part I've been happy with it, but I'm kinda regretting going continuous. See, I ride behind an '05 Malibu Response LXi, with a 750 pounds sac in the bac, fly high, and wedge, so I by no means have a super beefy wake. I want something that is gonna get me my maximum pop off the wake, drag a little less than my Murray, and have soft landings if possible (I know with 3 stages that's not always possible. To my point. With all the board clearances going on, I wanna pick up a 3 stage. I'm 6'2", 220ish, so a big board is needed. Here's how the options kinda lay out in my mind, but I'm also open to suggestions.

Locally:
Ronix Ibex - He's got it marked down 40% off of $429, and I'm gonna try real hard to get him down to 50%, which puts me at like $220ish I think.
Hyperlite B-side - I wanna say this one is at $469, but I might be wrong, it's close to the Ibex in price that's all I know. Same 40% rules as the Ibex tho.
POSSIBLY Hyperlite Tribute - I'm leery of going with anther continuous, but I've heard very good things about this board.

Online:
Unfortunately, I missed the Lyman deal on BBB, so this is where I stand.
LF Watson - What I was originally thinking until I found the above deals. I'm tempted to wait for one on BBB, cuz I don't wanna pay $300, but I really like what I hear about this board.
LF Shane - Love what I've heard here too, kinda same situation as the Watson.
