I don't know why all of the sudden this is bugging me. I ride the '06 Murray with CWB Torq bindings and this combination feels ridiculously heavy all of the sudden. My board is a 142 and of course that will add to the weight but is anyone else riding this setup? Does it seem heavy to you? I have a buddy that rides the Absolute Platinum and I know it's not a fair comparison but the difference between the two boards is substantial. I really like the board and the ease of the bindings but I am now considering the Murray bindings to try and lighten it up a bit.
Yeah, I think the Murray is heavy I helped a guy load one with parks bindings on it into a board rack, and I was really suprised, but then again it is a 142, and maybe when you throw huge raileys like shaun, you need some extra strength.
I have not weighed them, but my current '06 Absolute platinum 141 with Watsons feels about the exact same weight as my old '02 Premier with Highbacks.
I am not so sure about this whole weight thing. If it was "that" big of deal. I would assume riders would be wearing weight reduced shorts(something that would not hold any water), vests, using titanium hardware ect.
