Perch...oh I mean Search.

It's been reviewed pretty extensively. You can also take a look at the Board Guide. One guy reviewed it there.

The new Transcend is a sweet ride. Previously I rode the older Absolute (Flame/ Pure) which was pretty much the same mold from 2003. The new Transcend was the first shape to get me off of that older mold.

It pops like a big 3-stage rocker board, but glides across the water with very little drag, which is a rare blend. For me its able to maintain speed on big landing in the flats instead of slowing down abruptly.

It's a smooooth ride!

In comparison to the Absolute. It will be noticabely faster and looser on the water. The molded fins stop way short of the tail, so it seems to release a litter earlier off the wake imo. It's a lot of fun. I highly recommend.

It's a great board it's like J-rod states the board is a little of everything. I demoed a few boards before buying the transcend and to me none compared.

I need to try that board again, I only gave it a quick run and I was frustrated because I had just broken a deck.

Definately seemed to grip on edge, broke loose easy, and land soft.

For some reason I just wasnt comfortable in the quick set I took, Im really excited to check it out again.

Jrod, you arent the only one....My buddy Stan (sbt3 on this forum) also got pulled from his 03 Lute to the new transcend, that has to mean something.

how does it compare to the newer 06/07 abs platty 141?

is it slower or faster then the old transend and is it faster then the the 06 abs platty??

I love the abs platty but if i can find the same type of pop and smootheness with more speed then i may demo it later in the season..

Its way faster then the 06 Transcend and faster then the 06 Abs Platty. Bill its a sweet ride, if you want to demo one then just let me know and we can set something up.

I don't know....faster boards pop better for me, period. It's a timing thing.

It's a lot faster than the old Transcend. It's not even close to the same board.

Faster than the current Absolute also. It seems like it rides higher in the water.

Of course I have never ridden the board with the fin extensions in. But I suspect there is less drag because the molded fins are so short (if that makes any sense). Also, I dropped one size for the first time ever. I'm now riding the 138 Plati Transcend. It has the light weight feel and snap of a small board, but lands like a big board. The board doesn't even flinch on the big landings.

Right on Bill I here ya, but if you do decide on the 07 Transcend, then let me know, I owe you one, the one time you were in the shop, you helped sell an Abs Platty.

Best board ever...... Unless of course you think a Natural beats it (see other post for clarification).
