From what I've read here, I'm guessing the newer '07 or '08 142 Transcend. Looks like the rocker has increased a little in the '08 model. I'm riding a 141 '06 Lute Plat and love the pop and landings, but I do not like how slow it rides. I don't have the luxury of a demo, so any input would be greatly appreciated.

Randy,

I share the same feelings on the Absolute.

I love the speed of the Transcend. For me, it snaps harder off the wake, because the speed helps me keep my timing on point. On big landings in the flats, the boards doesn't slow down as much, allowing you to keep your balance better.

Not sure about your size/weight, but I was also able to drop down a size and ride the 138. It's still faster than a 141 Lute....for me.

Thanks for the reply J-Rod. I'm about 5'8" and weight varies between 170-175. Thought about the 138 but wasn't sure and like I said, no opportunity to demo. I don't even know anyone that has ridden one of the newer models. I did have an '05 138 that I wasn't crazy about. I've read a lot of posts here that said the '07 is a big improvement, totally different board.

Oh yeah.... Not even comparable to the '05 shape.

I liked the Absolute. I love the Transcend. I doubt you'd be disappointed. I'm also riding the 138. I'm 6' 160lbs.

Live in NC. Thanks for the replies. I'll be looking to pick one up. J-Rod or Evan, either of you had a chance to try the '08 or are they not out yet?

The 08 is the same shape with a new graphic.

My bad, I was looking at the 142. A little more rocker in the '08 model.

I should have my 08 soon.

So, my 138 plati is for sale.

J-Rod, what are you looking to get for your 138 plati? You can send me a pm if you don't want to post it here.
