I am 160lbs and 6' tall and ride the 142
i had (female) co-workers who were smaller and lighter than me that preferred my recoil 142 to the 137 syn (2007 era) shape they typically rode. Even with the greater size and surface area the first thing they noticed and commented on was the lightness.
slingshot boards are not THE lightest boards (only a select few are lighter, like the sub 6) on the market but they sure do FEEL like they are the lightest!
