I have ridden the CTRL Blueprint and really enjoyed it.. Let me say now that I dont know how it loads up because I was riding it finless because it wasnt my board. I liked the flex in the tip and tail and the base and the way it rode. I was wondering if anyone has ridden the Hustle or even the "mysteriously vague" RM. Is the tip and tail flex still there?? How does it load up?? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

The RM is not available yet. All the boards have specific flex patterns. We did a review of them in April http://wakeboardstl.com/2011/04/ctrl-wake-board-review/ The Standard and the RX seem to be the most popular of the four boards out right now. All of the board are super fun to ride, it just depends on what you are wanting to do. If you want a cable only board, any of the four will be awesome, if you want something that works well behind the boat too, go for the RX or the Standard.

More info to come.

After yesterday I have ridden the Hustle at the cable (in April) and now behind the boat (in July). It's a super fun board that tracks well, is super snappy and lands exceptionally well. The board does have flex in the tip and tail; however, it is tunable. By moving the fins forward or back, you can obviously change the release point off the water/wake and you can actually take some of the flex out of it by switching the top fin mount/bracket from the plastic to the metal which will stiffen the flex pattern and make it a little stiffer, want a little more flex, roll with the plastic fin mount.

All of the boards are super fun and ride a little different. As I mentioned, it just depends what you want to do with it. Here's my personal take:

Standard - Great cable board, good boat board, but a little slow for my tastes behind the boat, perfect for the cable.
RX - Great cable board/good boat board, a little faster than the Standard. Solid all around weapon.
Blueprint - Awesome cable board/I haven't ridden behind the boat. Has the most flex in the entire line in my opinion.
Hustle - Awesome cable board/Awesome boat board. Just the right amount of everything.

For being a first year brand in the marketplace, they have a lot of cool technology and I think in 2012 they will be making some slight changes to improve a few things from 2011 and be bringing some more new stuff to the table.

i've never had more fun riding a board than i have riding the RX. Little stiffer than the blueprint or obviously any flex board, but it flexes just enough.

Does the Standard and RX have a sliderbase?

No slider base on the Standard and RX.
Slider base on the BluePrint and Hustle.

Per their website, the Hustle and Blueprint do say they have a slider base on them. I asked about the Standard and RX, as CTRL is marketing themselves as a park board company. I thought it was strange to produce boards marketed in that manner, and not have slider base on them. I have noticed in videos, most to the team riders appear to be on the RX.

The RX and Standard are great park boards. Yeah CTRL wanted to keep the price low, so they have no slider base, but still really nice boards for the money.

269 Standard
300 Rx.

I wish they made the rx in some larger sizes from like a 142 or like a 144. I want a larger board but the hustle is a little too expensive and the blueprint is a flex and I want as little flex as possible. They look like sweet boards though
