Currently I am riding a LF Substance 138. I really like the board except for the hard landings, that and combined with some knee trouble makes me lean towards maybe a different board. I was looking at the CWB Marius, but I really like a 3 stage rocker and the Marius is a continuous. So to all Marius riders what do you think of the pop, or would i be better off with an absolute?

I ride the absolute and love the soft landings. The Marius is suppose to have as much pop with even softer landings, but I have yet to try one.

The Marius has alot of pop and really soft landings.
The Absolute is an Absolute it does everything Great with soft landings. I would demo both and then decide what board YOU like better.

Well the Marius is a board that alot of riders are ridin,but I have had people demo the board that dident like it. The Absolute is a very well liked board that most everyone really likes, I have never had a rider that demoed it not buy it, it just does everything great. If I couldent demo both and I had to make a choice, I would go with the Absolute.

Hey Jeff, that being said are the advancements of the new lutes substantial in comparision(sp?) to the other models that are old lute molds, mostly inquiring about the Flame?

I have been riding the Hyperlite Premier DNA for the last year and love it, but 2 weeks ago I rode my buddies new Absolute Platinum and LOVED it!!!! Like Jeff said, "it just does everything great." My new Absolute came UPS yesterday!

Adam the older Absolute molds are faster then the newer Absolutes molds they have less rocker then the newer ones, but other then that they are real close in the way they ride. If you are looking for a fast board get the 06 Flame, you will love the ride. look in the boards section at the 06 CWB's and look at the rocker amount on an 06 Flame and look at the rocker on an 06 Absolute. I think its like 2.45 on the 06 flame and 2.90 on the 06 Absolute.
