The Facts:
I am 30 years old 5'9''and 150-160 lbs depending on the day
I would say an intermediate rider at best (180, 360 and grabs) but a good snowboarder if that matters.

last year I rode a Wakeology Sick Transit 135.
Great board, and huge upgrade from my first one which was an O'Brian from the late 90's.
I also really love the Wakeology Bindings I have.

However,
Last year One of the guys I rode with picked up a Ronix Mana, and I tried it a few times and found it so much easier to get Wake to wake and also found it to have more stability that i started to find disappointment in my board quickly.

Now I know the Code22 in the New Mana, but i have heard and read great things about the William which seems like it may be easier to grow with.

Guys, help me choose a board.
I know it is 90% needing to continue to hone my craft, but if I can find equipment to make it easier, that is always a plus.

The old Mana is not easy to ride. In my opinion the Code 22 and the William will be a vast improvement even over the Mana. I really liked the William and a close friend (who can kill it) has been on the code 22. They are both fast boards with firm edges (very consistent). Both will help you progress fast.

I'm not much help, but either choice will be a good one. When I can't decide, I use the graphics as a tie breaker--really.

Just took my third set on the Code22 last night. It was my first set on it using my "normal ballast" configuation. Not sure if it was the board, the wake, or the cold @$$ water, but man was I getting punted. I had so much fun on it. It released really nicely off of the wake, both heel and toe side. Felt like I had total control of it. Was riding the G23 at 75' (which is a pretty wide wake compared to the older XStar, 210 and 230) and was going well into the flats. Seemed to be a bit more user friendly than the One that I was riding last year.

Love my William! It's so fast in the flats! It boosts of the wake! It's just amazing all around! I love it so much!

Guys, I decided on the Bill from 2012 (blue with the cookie)

Questions:
1. were there two versions last year as there is this year? if so is there a certain one i should be looking for.

2. i am finding a lot of 138 and 142's. which do you think will be better for me.
I was actually thinking of going 142 for landing stability as i have a 135 right now and it gets squirrely.

i weigh around 150 and am 5'9''
