I would have to say that Everybody's boards are quite a bit different than what they were before. I have not ridden the murray, but heard lots of great things about it. it is his first board to incorporate any kind of 3 stage rocker as i understand it. The TRUEST "hybrid" rocker on the market. the edges are continuous with a threestage kind of thing down the middle. hopefully i am doing the description justice? afterall, murray is stil as smooth riding as he ever was and i am sure the board reflects that
anyway. If you can, allow yourself some time to explore different boards (AND BOOTS) from different companies and different technologies and cores. I would totally understand if demoing is inconvenient for you (it is for me), but if at all possible, take advantage of it!
