Does anyone have experience with Guenther's boat board?

I've been using my 2011 LF Watson hybrid 143 behind the boat for the last decade. The board is still in great shape and has outlasted 4 pairs of bindings, on set #5. I love the tip / tail flex of the Watson hybrid, to a point where I don't think I would have as much fun on a traditional boat board. It is also light, even when compared to modern "light" boards. Not lighter than the new top of the line stuff, but in the same ballpark and with the added benefit of durability.

Things I love about the 2011 LFWH -
- fast
- loose
- light
- tip/tail flex

I watched Jeff Langley's Alliance Wake review of the 2021 Rhyme and he had the following notes -
- super fast
- loose
- maybe a little on the heavy side
- no mention of flex

I'm not concerned with the weight, but I do want some flex in my next board. LF says the Rhyme has a "flex" tip, but in some of Guenther's reviews he mentions that there isn't a ton of flex in the board.

They put traditional m6 inserts on the 2022 Rhyme, so I'm tempted to pick one up, flex and supply chain willing.
