An insert popped on my 09 Monarch - the good news is HO's warranty dept. is replacing it (nice job!) but they don't have any 09 Monarchs left to send out.
I loved this board - so light and nice and loose without feeling too slippery edging in. Plus I loved the gold & graphics as well. I am waiting to hear back from them regarding what is available to replace it with so in the meantime I'm trying to figure out what I would choose. What else from the Byerly / Hyperlite family compares to the '09 Monarch? I have liked the Byerly line in past years but have not ridden any of the new shapes - Conspiracy, Assault - besides the Monarch.
Anything with the light and loose feeling of the Monarch out there?
