I've read the earlier post about the Jett being the Witness shape Vs. the Watson... anybody know why this happened? I've been told that it is for sure the same shape as the witness. That brings me to my next question... I have no local board shop or any way to demo, but i'm really thinking about getting the jett. Coming from a premier i'm looking for something a little quicker. Can anybody who ridden the witness or the jett give me some in site into this board?
THANKS!

I have actually heard that the witness is a slower board and that info came from a liquid force rep. If you are considering Liquid Force I would look at the Axis line. At the Sacramento boat show I had a chance to talk to Kevin Henshaw a Lf pro rider who rides the axis and helped design the board and he was explaining to me that it is a really quick board for being a three stage rocker. It will probably be as aggressive as your premier and a little quicker. Hope this helps. Also the Melissa line is the Trip with girl graphics and thats a fast board on the water. I have ridden the Team and Trip and both are fast great boards.

I want to know if there are any Jett graphic Watson prototype boards out there. I would pay a lot for one of those. I have no problem riding a girls board when it's actually a Watson looks that much better than the current Watson. Anyone know if there are boards like this sitting around somewhere? Where did they get all those pictures for catalogs and stuff?

I just looked at pics of the jett, the watson, and the witness on wakeside.com and the jett looks like the watson but with different graphics. The bottom and top characteristics look like the same.

The Jett is the same shape as the Witness. The only 2 boards in the line up which ride faster are the Axis and Shane. The Jett will definatly ride faster than your premier.

I have rode both boards.

I know this is off topic, but I rode the Axis last week and loved the board. Coming from a 3DS, it had a lot more pop, was just as fast, and landed nicely. I would recommend anyone demoing it before buying a new board.
