Hey everyone. Its been awhile since I've posted but the time has come again for a new board and I wanted to try and get some feedback. 90% cable rider. I have a board I use primarily for boat so this is only in regards to a board for cable.
As of now I'm on a 2013 Slingshot Response 142 and its become harder for me to ride. To get the "soft landings" you need to land more tail heavy and with my effed up knee, tail heavy isn't an option. Now its time to get something more suitable.
I recently rode a friends Franchise FLX and enjoyed it for the most part.. Problem being that the boots were missing some insoles and were too big so I didnt get the full effect. Regardless, better landings and enjoyed the ride and the way it felt on sliders and off the kicker.
Problem, the largest size the Franchise FLX comes in is a 139 and I would prefer something in the 142 range. Not because of my size but more because I like a larger board, its more comfortable for me.
Was looking into a Hyperlite Union because its the same core and construct of the Franchise FLX and it comes in a 142. Wondering if anyone rides one and what they think of it... I'm also open to suggestions for other boards....
So WW fam.... Fire away!!
