Hi to everyone, and greetings from Belgrade.
I want to buy a good board for cable, and 2011 Liquid Force Harley LTD Grind looks fine for that. So, does anybody know anything about that board - is it good for cable, how is the edging, cut, response... Is it good as LF Witness or is it simply better to buy LF Witness even if it is not Grind and is from 2009? Rails and obstacles are less important...
If someone has a better suggestion please feel free to recommend.
Thanks in advance!

I was expecting a vid of Harley riding the cable somewhere. Lol

I would strongly consider Slingshot, CTRL or Humanoid before Liquid Force. I'm not sure if these brands are available to you or what your price range is like but if you can get one of these you would be much happier with your purchase and be helping the little guy in the process,

Sparky - Me too! Argh!

Kiza - Why are rails/obstacles less important? If it's because you're new to them, then don't count them out. I bet you'll learn to hit them soon enough. If you go Liquid Force, then definitley get a grind base. Tom Foshee has a new model for 2012 called the Tex. It looks pretty sweet. The Slingshot stuff is great too...slides sooooo smooth. Does your cable let you demo? That's really the only way you'l know if a board is right for you.

Hey guys You are the best, and thank You all for advices.
Obstacles are not so important because I want to improve my airs and in my cable park there is only two kickers for now. I thought the LF is most reliable company, and the Harley board seems to have good cut. As a meter of fact, I'd like to buy LF Witness Grind, but there no chance to find size 136.
Last year I rode LF Watson Hybrid from 2010, but it's not good for cable. So, this year I've asked on some sites about Harley and they gave me positive opinion. But truthly I believe You more guys...
Also I heard a good opinions about Slingshot, but what model is good for cable with strong edge?

How is the Watson Hybrid not good for cable? There will be alot of debate about the whole LF thing, def try and demo boards. All of the boards mentioned are great boards. People have their preferences an will try and steer you either towards or away from certain companies. Not sure what your budget is??

I tried Hyperlite Premier from my friend, and it's a much more edge hold than LF Watson Hybrid. Beside that, Watson is a great board, but I think it's definitely for riding behind a boat...
My budget is something around $320...
Again, thank You all for being in this discussion. Generally, there is more boards for boat, and I think that threads like this is always welcome...

Sorry, I made a big mistake - it's just Watson new model in 2010 (size 135) that I rode, not the Hybrid...

I was about to say...the watson classic is a boat board & the hybrid is cable or good behind boat as well.
