Well after a cold and rainy start to summer here in the Midwest I finally got out on the water last weekend for the first time this season. I decided it was probably time for me to get a new set up as my current one is on its looking pretty rough. I'm not all that familiar with what boards are on the market these days so I'm looking for some advice on what to get.

I'd say I'm an advanced rider, most basic inverts and spins, various TS/HS 360's and 540's. I mainly ride behind the boat but recently with a cable park within an hour of me I'll head up there when I can't get on the river with some buddies. I've been riding a Slingshot Choice 137 for the last few seasons now, I originally bought it as a cheap park board that I wouldn't feel bad about ruining. I find myself riding behind my buddies 2000 Malibu Response most the time, its got a wedge and we put close to 2k of ballast in it so the wake is decent but by no means big. I've found it to be a lot of fun to ride the slingshot on the small wake because of how fast it edges and how playful it is on the water.

I don't have the opportunities to ride as much as I used to so I'm not looking to break the bank, I'll likely get something that s a year or two old, or maybe a blem board. I've been leaning towards getting another slingshot but am really open to any suggestions. I definitely want something that is going to be just as playful on the water but maybe not as soft and a little more pop than the Slingshot Choice I have now.

I'll likely be looking for some new bindings too, currently have an older pair of Liquid Force Harley's. I've always liked Liquid Force Bindings in my experience they've been very comfortable and flexible, but the quality has never been all that great and they've worn out on me pretty bad.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
