Those are all pretty much the boards I went down the line with
HyperlitePremier, Ronix Covin (when it switched to viva in 09 I quit riding it), Went to the Gator, Rode the Gonzalez for a bit then when they dropped the Prospect it was instant transfer. Then rode SS response for bit, then went with the new shape Mana when it changed to Dean Smiths' board (the older Adam Errington version Mana i thought was a slow pig on the water). The newer Mana has some very similar characteristics to the old Premier i really like.
I have had the "Homie hookup" for a while so was always able to hop on a different board and check it out from time to time just to check out the new characteristics. Sometimes that's a bad thing cuz you instantly end up dropping $$ on a new board. However I was always able to sell the older ones
