I could be wrong but I think the William is more formal. You would ride it with a collared vest and slacks where as the Bill board kinda just likes to party.

I really want to get the bill and frank set up, I was anxious to see the 2013 set up. Think I would rather the 2012 set up. Not feeling the electric yellow/pink combo at all

I heard it wasn't completely formal but more like a tuxedo t-shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party.

I'm not getting the impression there will be two boards. Seems like they are calling the bill the william this year. It's the same name just different.

Nah, there's both. If you look at this there's the bill 2nd from the right and the william 2nd from the left

The question to be asked would be is there a physical design difference? Or just two different graphics. I feel like one would be more grind/flex than the other maybe?

Adam E just put up the collection on Twitter/Instagram

No word on what the differences are though.

Doesnt look like the William has fins, atleast I dont see any screws.

William is probably a flex version of the Bill.

I didn't see that link. It looks like the same shape, prob just a flex/atr version.

I think it is a flex board. When a buddy of mine stopped and talked to Adam at the Dallas boat show, he said he was pumped about the new flex board they had in the works.

Maybe they're doing a "watson"/"watson classic" type deal?

Can someone go through the lineup photo left to right? Is that a strata track on the ones in the middle there? Are a few of those wood? Is that one on the right a pro model for shota? The graphic looks like it has Japanese on it and a rising sunish feel lol

If you guys are still curious about the difference between the Bill and William I can give you my feedback/knowledge about them.
To start out, both boards are the same exact shape, but what is on the inside of the boards is extremely different.

The bill is just a normal foam core board, while the WIlliam has the new Ronix Intelligent core.
The bill is more flexible, while the William is super stiff and responsive. The Intelligent core uses a mix of wood, foam, and carbon fiber to increase speed, durability, and overall response of the board.
I have ridden both, and they are both great! The bill is a blast at the cable- flex, soft landings, the whole nine yards- and still a great board for the boat. Very consistent and overall good at everything.
The William is MUCH faster, more explosive due to the new core. I was blown away by it when I first rode one. I let my line out 5 more feet and still was cruising right across the wake.

Overall the William is just a supercharged Bill board. Both awesome new boards to the line this year!

i love my william! i have ridden it at the cable and behind boat. behind the boat it is super super fast and it locks on edge pretty hard and explodes off the wake the landings are pretty soft not as soft as on the bill but there managable. at thr cable it feels really loose because its so fast its still pretty flexy fot ronix calling it a "sitff" board. if you mostly ride boat you will love this board 10X more than the bill! oh and the franks smelling like banna's is pretty awesome!
