I've been researching flex boards for a little while. I think I want to pull the trigger on a 09 Slingshot Reflex. I am 5'7 160lbs. Should I consider the 137 or 141? I am leaning towards the 137, but trying to find advantage in the 141 (if any for my size and weight). Thanks in advance.

I would go with the 141. The board is really light weight and responsive. They don't feel like you are riding a big board.

Do you think the landings will be much softer witht the 141?

Man im 5'6 and 160 and i switch off between the 142 and the 138 Recoil. if i were you were you i would go with the 141, you want notice that its a large board, Slingshot's are thin and light and really easy to move around.

another vote for the larger. 141
many people tend to agree that larger boards land softer too

Cool, I am used to smaller boards but it sounds like I'd be just fine with the 141. Thanks...

i was used to a 137 size (traditional board) before and then got stuck demoing a 142 recoil when i went to demo a second or third time and LOVED it.
