I like the speed of my covin but the pop of my friend's watson.
Which board can come the closest to that.
Suggestions??

oh yeah and I ride Ronix One bindings and that isn't changing.

The Ibex has the speed that I liked from the Covin and definitely the pop that I liked from the '06 HL Parks I used to ride.

The recoil is the closest thing ive rode thats close to that. its about the same pop as the watson and you can file down the sides of your board to control the speed of them.

I have been on all of them except the Bill and this is how I would rank them

1. Recoil
2. Ibex
3. One/Response

The SS can be tuned to make them faster/slower.

My stock recoil is pretty quick and pops like nothing I have ever been on before

Tom, that pretty much describes the Viva.... I would stick with Ronix. I'm not a fan of Flex boards though. So go demo all of them.

yeah I really wanna try one. If anyone has an 08 recoil or response in 134 or 138 and would be interested in a trade for a set of 08 CWB answer boots you have a deal right here.

Alright cool. Are you gonna be rocking a boat down here? I ride with a friend and if we're going out you should be able to come with. Otherwise if you have a boat going I can give you money for gas, help with cleanup, etc.

Oh sick. Well if it's that I'll definitely want to come out with you guys. X-stars are awesome. I'm not the best rider, I just started at the beginning of this past summer really. But I like to go out and have a good time.

Nick- How do you tune the SS to be faster or slower? With the different fins?

by sanding the edges making them more sharp or rounded
