Brent, I didn't Relapse at all when I demo'd it. I did like the Franchise though.
Also, look into the LF Watson.
What kind of feel do you prefer on the water?

Ok scratch the relapse then...

I really like the feel of the LF Bob soven how its somewhat forgiving and easy to slide across the water. I ride behind an VLX and G23. I can do basic inverts. 540s, raley, somewhat aggressive riding 5ft 8 160lbs athletic. At the park I ride a Watson Hybrid OMG board but feel like it would not be my cup of tea behind the boat.

Any suggestions?

Brent you should try that Watson Hybrid behind the boat with fins. One of my favorite boat boards.

2013 CWB Marius with Marius closed toe bindings. Also have a 2013 Watson Hybrid for cable, but it's great behind the boat too.

I've been riding the Witness for years. Recently broke my last one (buddy didn't close the bungees of the board rack and board came flying out, hitting gunnel of boat. Sad day ) so now I'm on an old Harley (now Classic). I saw that Cook rides the RDX now, so I'm assuming that's most similar to the Witness. Might give that one a try.
Oh yeah (re: your other thread) I tried the One Timebomb once and didn't like it at all, but only rode it for about 1 minute, and with slider-fins.

What about the 2017 Watson Dose?
Old    Jonah (watermags)      Join Date: Oct 2011       04-20-2017, 8:53 AM Reply   
I have not ridden the Dose yet. I was planning on trying it out this season, but recently picked up the Murray 144 and probably won't be riding any other board for awhile. Absolutely love the Murray after only one set last Sunday. For reference I'm 5'11" 180lbs and the 144 is the perfect size.

Will be riding my 2016 Slingshot Nomad that I got towards the end of season last year. Tweaked my knee first ride out on it. had to take a month off, got a few sets in late September/early October. Had Labrum surgery in late January so I won't be able to ride until July.

I swear I'll get to ride the darn thing one day

I just picked up a byerly Felix. Such a difference to my current cable board (a 2012 rogue grind). My first (semi) flex board and I love it already. Don't see myself taking it behind the boat though.

Just picked up a pair of JT boots in great shape cheap from Craigslist. Interestingly the Dowdy boots fit me to a tee, while the Twelker's are slightly shorter and my toes touch the end. Both are 9-10 and I can wear a 9 1/2 shoe. Fortunately they are still comfortable enough to use.

The franchise is narrow so go with the 142 if you do that one. I've rode everything on your list except the Dose and they are all good. Just depends what you like in a ride.

Brent I went with a 2016 Remedy over my old 2013/14 Harley and it was a bit faster and maybe landed a bit softer but not a big jump from the switch, felt great under my feet ..
