I have heard good things about the imperial. Im sure NoSkeez can jump in here and offer his proffesional opinion. What ever you do pickup some CWB bindings to go on it. Hinge Tech is the only way to fly.

The IMP is awesome!! Butch did a really good job with the shape, and the three stage rocker on it is nothing short of amazing!! Plenty of pop!! Are you looking for an 08?? The 08 Murray bindings are awesome, but if you're more of a freestyle rider, I'd check into the CWB Answers!!

I have and really like the hyperlite Murray. I also have the Liquid force Watson bindings on it. The are really comfy and easy for my big foot to get in and out but still have great support and responsiveness.

Like DuckGuy said, I had the Imperial as my demo board for this past summer. Coming off just about every other three stage board in the Hyperlite line, I was most impressed with the Imperial. It is a more controllable pop than something like the Byerly or previous Parks, but more agressive than a continuous rocker board like the Murray. If you've been impressed with any of Butch's other masterpeices (Byerly Shapes), you will be pleasantly surprised and happy with the Imperial. When we got the Ibex in towards the end of the summer I rode that as well, but still preferred the Imperial. With a little more time, and riding behind a better weighted boat, the Ibex may grow on me, as I've always been a fan of Parks' boards.

Just my

Either way, keep us posted on your decision! I've still got my demo Imperial available as well, with a nice little discount... Let me know if you're interested!
