That thing looks awsome! If you don't mind me asking what was the price? I'm considering trading up my Player 143.

The MSRP for the regular core is $369 and the MSRP for the Cirrus core is $549

Hmm, could put the tax return to some good use You've got be going nuts just looking at it and not being able to ride it. Have you ridden a Cirrus core board before? Are the landings harder?

What's the difference between the regular & cirrus core? Is it worth the extra $180 bucks ?

From my understanding, the cirrus is a: lighter than the foam core, and b: more rigid, therefore when you hit the wake the board doesn't flex thus giving more pop. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it, but then again I could be wrong

I posted a review in the board guide section:

But I put it under the Demented 136. The board I rode was the 141.

not sure what it really means but it says this new cirrus core makes the boards lighter and snappier..in snappier i think they mean a bit more flex like the wood cores where the flex causes a release of energy after the pop to drive the board up a bit more ..i guess that would mean absorbing more energy on landings which would mean softer landings..

oh well i could be wrong but thats what i take form all this new fangled cores :-)

oh BTW if you read the review link it says the fins are .95", thats not big at all ..

??

well my belmont has .7 fins and they look a lot smaller than those. maybe it's just the pic. the belmont comes with 1.1 fins in the center that i take out, and there's a pretty sizeable difference between those and the .7s.

Well bill at least we both agree it will give more pop just the method to get there is different. But what you said makes sense, so now I don't know which way is up!

The fins on the 141 are 1.1" The fins on the smaller boards 136, 131, are .95"

The Cirrus core is OíBrienís answer to the competitions lightweight wood core boards. It's some kind of crazy aero-space material that is actually machined out of a block of the stuff.

The big advantage I see is the reduced weight and the fact that it is a closed cell material that won't soak up water if it is exposed to it, unlike wood core boards.

The Demented I rode last fall was not a Cirrus core board, but it landed softer then any board I have ridden. Thatís important to me because I have two recently rebuilt knees!!! I think the deep V under the bindings had a lot to do with that.
