So I thought I wanted a 09 PS3 grind 137 but I recently changed my mind about that I'm looking for a board that respondes quick, has good pop, and soft landings. I ride mostly cable down in Tampa and have been thinking about slingshot but I don't know how durable they are. Anyone have any opinions?

Greta for rails, super durable base, ABS sidewalls, great board, great customer service!!

The new slingshot reflex is tough as nails and the flex is great on rails

Thanks :-) I heard there is a new slingshot coming out soon that is meant for cable anyone know anything about this? Also, should I pay the extra for the 09 reflex or is the 08 just as good?

Check the Ronix Arcade by Bill i just got mine its insane graphics make it poke out like crazy. its quick on the water has clean pop and is a grind base. its a advanced board but with out that 500 dollar price tag you can pick one up for like 375...

Get a Slingshot Jon! If you like the Premier, you will love the Recoil! The landings are so soft and the pop is outta this world, and if you are hitting rails, flex is money! The Reflex is more designed for rails, but also kills it behind the boat. Check it out www.slingshotsports.com

B Side is sick on Rails! JD got rail rider of the year, but I imagine that would have happened on any board.

I do not mean to hijack this thread, but I am also in the same boat. I need to find a new board. I purchased a CWB Pure 140. I am not too happy with it. I might sell it. A friend of mine let me try his Hyperlite 3DS 139. It the Chad Sharp board. I really like that board. Well, they do not make that board any more. The board that I was looking at is the Pulse 139. I know it is a 2007 board, but it is still available. I think the Pulse and the 3DS are the same boards. Am I wrong?

I am pretty much a beginner at wakeboarding. I felt really good and stable on the 3DS board. I think that I just might get the Pulse 139
Thanks for the input.

yeah as the pulse is an 08 model you should be able to get a good deal on it as the 09 gear is out good luck
