Since my 06 Absolute Platnium broke, I had to borrow a 138 substance from a friend, and I must say I really liked it! Granted, its not as light at my platnium and I definately felt the difference, but I had more pop and more speed than any previous board ive had (06 pure, 06 Parks and 06 'Solute Platty). I was very suprised with the speed and the kind of pop I was getting! anyone else ride this board? I have an 07 absolute platnium on its way, but now Im considering picking up the substance... too bad its so heavy!

I have a 06 substance. It is heavy but has a soft landing for a 138. Ride it a couple more times and see what you really do/don't like.

Uh oh, you better be careful fouroh, the CWB Is Everything police are going to get you for speaking such heresy.

The Substance is such an awesome board though.

Dont get me wrong, I love my cwb, its really nimble, light, and great for just about any trick you want to throw at it. I was just suprised by the substance, thats all!

Have you picked up an absolute platnium? Ride that for a season then pick up a substance, and youll say the same thing.

Got one. I love it - I don't think I'd ride another board, but I'd have to disagree with it landing soft. I think it lands real hard, compared to many other boards that I've ridden.
