Yo David. My personal opinion is leaning the other way from Zach's. I've ridden the Drifter but I didn't really like they way it edged, the tunnel channels were a little weird. I have ridden the Blindside Assassin 134 for the past year. I've ridden lots of boards and this one is definately a good ride. It is very fast with the multiple fins and the hooked rails. It gets a lot of pop because it has a very wide profile and spins like a mofo cuz it's nice and short. I ride with my bindings all the way out and it is very secure on landings. Another reason it lands soft is that there is a large center spine in the center that displaces water to the side as it lands.
The really cool thing about this is that I'll sell you my '03 for $100 + shipping. I got the hookup from CWB and I need to get rid of it ASAP. It has one nick on the topsheet that is very minor, from the handle hitting it. It's not near the edge and will not affect the ride or allow water on the core. It's listed in the CLassified section.
