My riding buddy just got a new '13 Slingshot Lyman, and we compared it to my '12 version, and the '13 is quite a bit different in the bottom features. Also the board is thinner. Main differences we saw were;

-full length "rail" or edge is not as deep and stops in the middle of the board
-end "molded" fins are not as deep (know they are machined into the core on the SS)
-'13 board is noticeably lighter (probably due to thinner profile)

Has anybody else compared a '12 SS Lyman to the new one? What effect on the board will these changes have? Just seems that the board will not feel as 'locked in" on edge? I haven't ridden it yet, but watching my buddy, looked like the board is looser when transistioning to the wake.

Ok, just looked at the SS site and on the video they mention changes to the base, but don't really "quantify" what they've changed.

Also, the colors and graphics are really cool on the '13 board, color is more orange than yellow, overall a really great looking board IMHO.
