As for Slingshot vs LF specifically...
I noticed the similarities of the Recoil and the Lyman before but not the bindings... interesting

I don't think anyone is necessarily copying anyone else or if any one could confirm other than showing dates of production, which still doesn't necissarily mean anything.

BUT for the sake of dates of production alone i want to say that i think "LF followed SS on the board" (they came out the same year so it is tough call, but i think the recoil graphic came first, correct me if i am wrong) and "SS followed LF on the binding" (the shane came out over a year before so that one is obvious)

AGAIN, i am just going by dates of release, not saying that anyone "copied" anyone else ;)

sorry for the long post ;)

Im not knocking any company and saying someone is copying another. Just thought it was funny how close those 2 came out. I saw the slingshots in a mag and thought it was the lyman at first glance. I guess your bound to have overlapping designs. And its weird that Motion watersports owns so many brands (LF obrien hyperlite) but those ones dont come out as similar I feel.

As far as those other boards posted, not sure if they are just black boards. The bindings look like they have very similar construction. I thought the lyman and recoil had used same colors same paint splash idea same position on the board, with the rest black.
