Just getting into flex myself. 2nd year on one Landings are pilloweee soft. I mean piloweee
It takes a little while to get used to on the take offs as you have to wait a little longer of the wake from my experience. I don't know why they market them so hard for cables and winching. These things rock off the wake. I for one a sold. The landings alone are worth the $$$. It has allowed me to have way more fun ollieing and butter sliding. Just doing new surface stuff. I think that has led me to have way more fun behind the boat which in turn has brought me to learn some new stuff and got me going again. All in all it really was an easy transition for me. Again very little difference from a standard board as far as pop, edge, and overall wake characteristsics. However again the landings in the flats or casing the wake are cake.
The other huge advantage is that now you can ride your favorite binding if it happens to not be a Slingshot or a Company binding on the flex board. I think that was huge.
