Which wakeboard to buy...
Right now i have a 2004 cwb absolute platinum 134 and something about its just not doin it for me. I think i outgrew it or something as ive gained probably like 40 lbs since i got it. I want a really aggressive board with a lot of pop and im really leaning towards buying the new ronix ibex 139. does anyone own the ibex that can tell me how they like it?

6' 160 lbs

obviously i want a board with good everything but above all else im looking for one with as much pop as i can find for roughly around 400$

I would look at the CWB Pure in a 138. Board has great pop and a spine for landing.

I rode an Ibex a couple of years ago, and it just wasn't for me. If I landed with too much weight on my front foot it just wanted to stop. Great pop though. Anywhere you can try before you buy?

No theres not... I just went ahead and ordered the hyperlite murray bio i feel like that a safe bet for a great board. From what i'm seeing on reviews and discussions ronix boards are really hit or miss so i decided to wing it since hyperlites have such a great rep. I'm hoping to have the board by this weekend to use and i really don't want to go through a big process of returning a bunch of boards till i find the absolute perfect one so hopefully this works out.

I use a 137 Slingshot Response. It took some getting used to but it rides great.

You'll love the murray. I ride the same board and have been extremely please with it.

What is your opinion of a flex board behind the boat? I never ride cable but I'm considering getting a SS. Some say that a flex board doesn't pop as well as a traditional board does, while others swear by them and say it just taking some adjustments. Is it still as fast as a non-flex or does the flex slow you down on a hard cut?

Sorry for the treadjack, let us know how the new board rides!
