new wakeboard needed

I noticed my old board 2010 Ronix One board has a crack on the top deck, so it's time for a new board. I haven't really kept up with new boards, so I don't know what good options are. There are now 2 One options - Timebomb and ATR. They say that the ATR is cheaper construction, so what's the difference? Isn't the ATR supposed to be a more durable option, or is that just the base?

I'm 6'1" and 205 lb. My current board is the 146, and I like it. I just need a new one. What other boards out there are similar? I'd like to stay with something similar in performance. I'm an intermediate rider. I don't have any shops around to demo a board. I've never been on a camber board, so don't think that I want to blindly make a leap to one of those. I can find the One ATR online for $400, and the Timebomb is $540 to get it in 146. I'm having a hard enough time with the $400 ATR, no way I'm spending $540. I've had a 143 board before, not sure how much the extra 3 cm is getting me.

I got a hyperlite Murray 150 this year and really like it. I'm 6' and 200lbs. Not sure i needed the 150, but it sure is less tiring than my old 141cm board. Good pop and rides way steadier than it looks with no bottom features.

I am 200lbs and have a HL Baseline.

It is stable, but I suck at it.

Anyone have any feedback on the HL kruz compared to the ronix one?

Iím on the ronix bandwagon in STD size. I know you donít want to take a leap of faith on the camber, but Iím sold. Iíve been very pleased with the acceleration of the camber board, and the pop. Check out The-House.com. Theyíve got some deep discounts on ronix boards right now.

For reference, Iím about 40 yrs old, 190lbs and an intermediate rider. I can do wake to wake 180s and a backside roll. Thatís about all Iíve got in my small bag of tricks.

ATR would just be the base. Do you like the 3 stage kick of the one, or do you want a continuous rocker it’s a lttle more smooth

For the price of your board and shipping it, I can get a brand new One board. I don't see the value in that purchase for me unless the either the sale price is less or shipping is less than the $100 estimate.
I also see quite a few scuffs on the bottom which makes me think it's seen at least this season of use, which I wouldn't classify as mint.

I like the 3 stage for the pop, don't like the drag.

Most who ride the One say it tracks really hard and is tough to break loose. I think the Kruz would be somewhat similar to the One in that regard, at least more so than the Murray. I ride a Murray 150 and it is the opposite. Very easy to break loose, and only tracks when you edge properly.
