I decided to purchase a Prodigy board from CWB but i dont know if i should go with the Platinum or the regular one. The difference i spotted in reading is that the Platinum costs more, weighs about .8lbs more, and the core is Compression molded Platinum Process instead of Compression Molded Fiber glass. Im not worried about the price but whats the deal with the weight and the core?? Is there really no significant differance besides the graphic?? If someone could help me out id be eternally grateful. Thanks (PS. im about 170 should i go with the 140 or 135?)

I'd go 140. A bit big is better than a bit small.
Plat reacts faster, snaps off the wake better due to being stiff as hell. The core has carbon rods through it to cut weight and add stiffness.

If $ is not an issue.. go Plat. The graphics better too IMO.

I ride an Absolute and although there was a difference it was not so significant to justify the extra $. If $ is no object then hell buy me one too!!! I'd also go for the 140 or even better the 138 Transcend.

Thanks for the words of wisdom! 2 more questions though...does the Platinum land alot harder? and is the Transcend available for purchase now?

It is stiffer and therefore would land a little harder. Like I said it is not really going to be such a difference that you will notice it and stress about it. The Transcend should start shipping pretty soon here. Call your dealer, they will know when they are getting theirs in.
