Well the meltdown in the midwest has put summer on my mind and got me thinking about what setup I want. My vantages last year peeled so i get to upgrade to the new ltd and the board i have pretty much settled on is a S4 since i'm a huge ps3 fan but also I have a knack for some good lookin setups and the S4 ltd with the Ltd vantages would just look sick so i have a few questions on the base.
How much heavier is this board then one with a normal base (I am trying to keep my setup as light as my ps3 133 with 07 ronix one boots)?
Does it affect how the board rides behind the boat?
Any other pros or cons that you are aware of let me know. Thanks Chris
there are no cons it will ride the same behind the boat and last for ages on rails. I don' really know the official word on weight difference, but it isn't noticeable. I've had the PS3 grind for a couple of years now and had no problems.
The difference in weight is like .75 lbs. the only difference you'll really notice riding it is that it will be a little looser and slower, because the material can't conform well to sharp contours, so The fins are a little shorter and not quite as crisp.
