I just got off the phone w/ CWB and they told me the new 05 boards will be shipped to stores the first week of September.

Can't wait to see them.

Anyone get a sneak peek that wants to share?

The new WBM has a shot of the new Plat
Absolute. That's the only new one I've seen besides the Transcend.

I have the new 05 Absolute sitting here in the office waiting for Tony to get back from Nationals. It was here when we got home today.

Why does everyone try and compare a new board to an old board of a differant brand? It has a much larger spine down the back and longer molded fins then last years, but what it looks like is the 05 135 Absolute.

I saw the 05 PLatinum. It has like a see-through top to the fabric. Pretty cool.

hey Leo i can see why you said that ,that was my first thought as well..looks like the HL era,03 premier,RGGator etc etc..its a proven bottom and i think it may be the best Absolute yet,,i hope its stays with one bottom more then one year,seems like the absolute has chnaged every year the last four years...

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i can't wait till after labor day to see the whole cwb lineup.

I've seen them all and ridden a few. Your suspicions are correct, some of the best graphics ever laid onto ANY board are in the 05 lineup (IMO).

This is of course in addition to the awesome yet subtle changes made to the boards.

05 Bindings are looking pretty sweet too.

I've said enough - two weeks won't kill you.

Not to rain on the '05s, but can anyone talk to when and how much this effects '04 and even '03 pricing? I wanted the '04 Flame with Torqs, and if they were in stock anywhere, they'd be around $399 right now. Saw the Pure with Torqs down around $329. I'd expect them to drop further here pretty soon, but wonder how much and when?

I can wait until the winter if it'll save me a hundred bucks or let me get a Platinum, or Zues' instead of Torqs, or...

Not real concerned whether I get the '03 Absolute, or the '04 Flame (pretty much '03 Absolute), or the '04 Absolute, or the '05 Flame (almost an '04 Absolute?). I like the looks of the '03 and '04 Absolutes and don't like the fact that the '04 Flame supposedly dropped some rocker off the '03 Absolute. Don't care what the name is, just so long as it's a good 3-stage board that can be run with no- or small fins, and I'd prefer to stick with CWB.

So when will the '05's push the old boards down in price, and by how much, and how would say an '05 Flame and '04 Absolute compare in price?

Sorry for the long post, and thanks for the help!

Derek ~ Check out Chick's in West Covina. They are having a tent sale right now and I saw a Flame w/ Torqs for under $300. I don't know if it's still there but I saw it when I got my new 04 141 Absolute for $239

THANKS!!!

That's a good price on your Absolute, too, right?
