Been riding the balance and like it but after 3 summers it is finaly broken...wondering if anyone has any feedback on the new ERA, and if it compares?

I'd say the Transcend would be a similar but more aggressive ride. More rocker, cupped rail, stiff.. I'd give it a shot.
I love mine.

Thats what i love about the balance, its fast and it seems to grab pretty easy when your turn, maybe because of the cupped rails...but ill look into it..thanks for the info.

the Transcend is not a fast board. At least that is what I've been told.

The Trancend 138,which i demoed two days this week ,is not fast..its a board that takes at least three sets before you can figure it out ..i was going to fully give it negative grade until my fourth sets in which i forgotmi was riding it and it felt pretty good..

Its slow ,you have to cut a bit harder to go the same distance or you will case the wake especially toeside..it does have a smooth predictable pop mostly straight up like a byerly but not so abrupt..it does pop big when you lay it on edge through the wake..if yoiu like a loose board this board will ride loose when your on top of it and it needs to be brought on edge more progressivly then usual or you will break loose a bit on sudden, hard turns towards the wake on your cut..once on edge while slow it is smooth and predictable ..

Overall a nice board but i like a board with more versatlilty like my old 03 Premier DNA 140 which i seem to be getting back on all the time bewteen other failed attempts at replacing it..However i think i finally found a boaqrd thats as good or better and i will be buying it the next week or so,the 05 CWB Absolute platinum.i lioke the look and feel of this board as wlel as it comes with two sets of center fins that you can use or ride it finless..So it has three choices for your riding style,unlike the transcend with no center fin and one set of outside fins...

ive rode and demoed the 138 dup Nelson,141 Obrien demented,the CWB Tatoo136,prodigy 140,trancend 138,foam and 05 platinum 135 absolutes and have decided on the Absolute for my riding style ...My old premier will now be my slider board and always be there for me if i need it :-)
