they are totally different boards and you should try to ride them. If that isn't possible, then you need to guess which style you are more like. The marek is very fast and has good pop. I came from the 3ds/pulse and felt that the marek went a step better than it. The murray isn't as fast (or at least the old ones are not). I don't know enough to talk about the newest murray other than they are different boards. Someone can fill you in

Chris, I have ridden the B-side, Murray, premier, marek, watson, and Byerly monarch. They are all good boards that I feel I could make my main board. I would choose the merak over the Murray. The Murray feels so heavy and slow compared to the Merak, but some people like that. After all those boards I made the Byerly Monarch 56' my board of choice, it is light and the landings are soft. The landings on the Marek felt softer than the Murray out in the flats. My opinion on boards is if you feel comfortable on the board, stick with it. Since you can't demo them, I would go with the Marek

Thanks to everyones inputs. Yeah the 06 murray is pretty heavy and am trying to get something lighter.
Rob was there a huge difference in weight between marek and murray?

The Monarch is a bit lighter, but it is like 1/2 a pound, not really a big deal. The marek tracks really fast, especially with the 1.0 fins. The monarch is a bit slower and I think use a progressive edge better with the Monarch. It is probably more a mental thing. I have a few guys in my crew that ride the marek and they won't even try other boards.

Chris, I just compared the wrong boards...My bad. I feel that the Murray board is much more heavy than the merak. But the Murray 2008 board is lighter than the Murray 2006 Board. The Byerly Monarch and Marek are made out of the same material, I forget what it is called. The Monarch ways only 5.5 pounds....but I guess thats why the MSRP is $649.00
