It's going to largely come down to what you get used to. I rode quite a few 3-Stage boards, they were fine, but I was able to really get the best feel when I was on a continuous/hybrid rocker with the Ronix Viva series. The shape really works with the way I want to ride. I believe that this board gives me a more consistent pop, and I feel very comfortable charging the wake knowing what i'm going to get. I'm a big proponent of the Hybrid/Continuous rocker. I probably wouldn't go back to a true 3-Stage. The landings have a lot more to do with how you like to cut into the wake and whether you go wake to wake or head out to the flats and the technique with which you land. Also, take a look at your board size. Landings can be more harsh if you're riding an undersized board.
My opinion, keep working at it with your Watson for a while, add a few more tricks to the bag, then try out somebody's continuous and see if it feels better. I love mine, but I rode a lot of 3-Stages before it. When I jumped on the continuous, everything I knew just felt better.
