I ordered a 142 ronix one but I was going to get the 146 but they were out of them.

I know the 142 will be big enough for me but Im curious as to how much better or worst the 146 would have been for me?

I went from a 142 to a 146 Ronix One. Not a huge difference honestly. A little more edge to work with, a little more surface area, so it does ride like a bigger board. Unless you're burying the 142 I wouldn't think twice about rocking the 142.

i am about the exact same height and weight... I went with the 146 and couldn't be happier... it rides a little higher in the water and thats what I like... jsut depends on ur preference

I am the same height and weight pretty much and I wouldn't get a 146. I ride a 142 now and was even thinking about trying a size down. I think of 146's as for the really big boys.

I'm 6'1" 185-195lbs and would only go for the 146. Bigger is way better!

6'1" 210 and I ride the Ronix One 142. Tried a 146 but all those boards are like having a boat strapped to your feet.

i was riding an 08 142 dhv1 and i demoed a 144 viva and IMO i thought it was to big and yes it was a little more edge to deal with, so i went and rode the 142 bill and absolutely love it! and im 6'1" and like 205, so a 142 shouldnt be a big deal

Youll be fine with either of those... Decide what you want out of your board.

The 146 is going to ride higher in the water as already said. That means youll get the same buoyancy out of the board at maybe a half MPH slower, which could make for a slightly meatier wake and slightly less painful crashes. But the downside is that the board will be heavier and tougher to bring around on spins.

The 142 is going to be easier to throw around, however youll need to ride a little faster to get on top of the water the same way, meaning narrower, shallower wakes (very slightly) and potentially more painful crashes.

Personally, I ride 143-144, being 6' at 225. I dont have much problem riding my brothers 139, but I def have to ride a little faster.
