I have ridden both, the LF 129 and the Marius 134 and 140. They all have good pop to me, the CWB was hard landing in the flats, and the fish was nice on the landings. I could hold a harder edge on the CWB for inverts and the fish was fun for spinning. It was a bit wierd being so short, didn't feel normal, but fun to ride. If I were to pick one over the other it would be the fish for me. What are you looking for in a board. I have been demoing different boards looking for soft landings and I am really happy with the LF Team.

wow...that's the first time i've ever heard anyone say the marius landing hard. you ride for lf by chance?

i've ridden both and thought the fish landed hard. i ride the marius mainly because of its soft landings. my old ass knees can't take hard landing anymore, thus the marius, which has been touted as the softest landing board.

I know Joe, everyone told me the Marius was soft landing. I was so stoked to ride it for the soft landing, but it was the opposite for me. I have been riding the DUP Lidberg for the last couple of years and just tried the Team by chance last weekend and was really surprised how soft it landed. Go figure, riding style or whatever it is, makes it hard to take peoples opinion on a boards performance for your own information. I am not trying to bash any particular board, just give my own personal view.

"The CWB Marius was hard landing in the flats"
Thats crazy, the Marius lands butter soft, one of the softest landing boards ever IMO.

I know, I know land hard in the flats, it is just me... Its not my fault, I am just an old fart with bad knees.

Jim try the new Trancend, it is a little slow if you like fast boards but the landings are soft (at least to me they are). I am really starting to dig the board alot. It makes you charge the wake a little more than my absolute but I think that is a good thing.

I think J-rod hit it on the head!! Jim you just go to big!! I also think Jim is a lil LF struck right now!! He is KILLIN it on that Team!!!! He's Raley on sat was STUPID big!!! Rippin!!!!

I say MARIUS!!! I have rode for many years and have tried every board I can get my hands on! IMO the Marius is the best board I have ever been on!! (Even better than the 02-03 Byerly!! Before the Marius there was not a question in my mind that was the best mold ever) It takes some a few rides to get it down! But once you get it! ITS ON!!! Good luck! BG

BG,

You going to Boardstock? I was hoping to get you on the boat again for a secession soon.
