Its been between the 2014 hyperlite Union or the hyperlite fanchise. I want a hybrid board. I do ride cable occasionally but mainly begind the boat. I tend to like a board with more of a free ride feel. I mostly go wake 2 wake and I have been working on wrapped spins. What board do you think would be the best?

I would go with the franchise, it's a great, poppy lightweight board on boat and if you want to ride the park, just remove the fins and youll be able to press on the rails. definitely see if you can demo them both, but you cant go wrong with the franchise

Do you want a tank of a board? If so then they'll both work fine, otherwise I'd look at other options. I have no idea how guys do so much on the tank that is the Union, it's just heavy compared to other options that I've ridden.

Go with the Franchise, bud! Such a fun board and definitely can't be considered a "tank". This guy is negative on every post... ^^^^

I'd go with the Franchise as well. Jimmy Lariche learned how to wakeboard at Ski Rixen and rides a fair amount of cable, his board was designed to accommodate this. The board should also fit your w2w riding style pretty well. I'd never describe this board as a "tank", based on experience.
