I have a 125 fish rite now and am looking at getting the 134 watson. I want something with a similair feel to the fish. I also have an 03 Parks and the board isnt loose at all. I want something kind of inbetween that and the fish. What do you guys think, also hows the 134 size for me, I'm 5'6 and weigh 145.

I'm a fan of small boards as i feel they give me more control. And coming from a fish 125 i dont want something very big, did you try out the watson too? How loose is the watson?

I felt the watson to be very loose, it has this spine thing on the bottom that makes it loose. The 134 would be ok, My boyfriend weighs 155 lbs and rides that one. You can see in the board specs that the fish is only a bit wider than the watson, so if you ride the 125, you should be ok with the 134. It s a great board, and super light

My boyfriend (who is 5'11" and 170 Lbs) rides the 134 Watson. The 125 Fish should be almost equivalent to a 135 so I betcha' the 134 Watson would suit you well. I wanted the 125 Fish badly but I ride a 131 so I'd need a 121 at the largest for the Fish...which they don't make. The spine down the middle of the Watson helps with landings...a lot. Great board...it's lighter than my 131 (and yeah...that does piss me off that it's so much lighter than mine...ha ha ha). Perhaps LF will make a smaller Fish for us smaller fish out there next year.

Bought the watson 2 days ago. Can't ride it till next monday though since im recuperating from a ruptured eardrum. The board looks real nice and weighs less then my fish. Hope I like the ride. Its weird that they mad a 137 fish, thats huge!

The Watson is a sick board, its very light as stated before, it has tons of pop, its semi-loose, and on top of that its the sickest looking board ever made IMO. I think I'm going to buy it along with the Limited Edition Watson Bindings.

Cris...you are lucky...I ride a 2005 CWB Lotus (with this year's LF Minx bindings). The Lotus is alright but seems a bit sketchy sometimes...not the smoothest ride. How's the Cadence riding for ya? It's got similar measurements to last year's CWB Lotus but I think it's a bit lighter and perhaps smoother? Let me know.

The 2000 or 2001 Trip 143 was the sweetest looking board made to date.

Sweetest looking... aside from the Waton and 2004 Subjekt, i'm going to go with the Last Helix 134!
