is the liquid force shane arguably the best board out there or is there any reasonable competition from cwb, gator, ronix or hyperlite?

I swear half these posts are to drum up business from some ad guy. Of course there are or the competition would go out of business

The Watson was actually the highest selling board for 07. The Shane is definitely a great board unless your new to the sport. I've seen way to many kids buy the Shane just because they like Shane Bonifay and end up wanting give up the sport because they can't handle the board. That's actually why the Watson is so popular. It's an awesome pro model board but anybody can ride it.

I love my shane and wouldn't say it isn't forgiving if you don't stick something dead on.

I like the transcend as it feels similar to the shane to me. I don't think there's any one board that is the best. Depends what you like in your board and how you ride!

I've only been riding Liquid Force decks for the last 8 years since switching from Hyperlite. But I just say no to Liquid Force bindings-nothing but problems. Love my GB Saints now.

Have to agree with Cason on this one. I have never personally rode the shane, but the watson is very rider friendly. i have gotten people up and riding on it who have never set foot on a board and it performed well for them. Overall a great board.

the cwb absolute platty was one of the most talked about boards until cwb started incorporating alot of what they did with it into their whole line..personally i havent found a better board ,for ME,yet.

ive demoed a lot of them the last three years and cant seem to get off this light, explosive and soft landing board..its atad slow especially in chop is the only negative ,oh and i break one a year but get them replaced free so no biggie :-)

funny you ask the only thing ive found close is the shane and i may demo the 140 a bunch in the spring and see how it goes..

The best board out there is the board for you. Thats why all the boards have different styles/designs.

Take the info on here with a grain of salt and form your own opinion.

Ronix One, love it. But I agree with Pereira, everyone has a different style and ability so each different board could arguably be the best board for each individual rider.
