Best Wakeboard Brand Out There...?

i'm curious to see what MC owners/loyalists have to think on the subject... which wakeboard mfg co out there makes the best board to date... feel free to grade on whatever criteria you see most essential... best pro model, best reliability, ultimate forgiveness, sweetest graphics (<--what a loser), etc. and please don't hesitate to state the basis for your opinion

I'll share mine... I can't find a board to beat the Ronix Ibex that's out now... it's got a pretty good turnability but it's got serious pop and it's fun to ride b/c surface tricks that add style points are effortless... o yea and it looks pretty sweet too
Current - '07 X2 blue on silver metal flake w/ switch graphics

I voted CWB because thats all we have and we mostly have Connelly skis which have never done us wrong..... I have heard really good things about Ronix though too..

I like the cwb the best
Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

C Dub's never done me wrong, but I'm a big fan of Hyperlite and HO. They stand behind their product, I've got a Tribute and there's always butter soft landings, it breaks free really easily, and I'm not really concerned with the graphics. I'm not very impressed by Ronix's products I've seen liners in the one boots break out, and seen the boots break off the board. not just at the screws but the whole plate snapped. I like slingshot a lot to, and I'm about to order my response and my PB floyds!!

I've rode Hyperlite since I started riding. They have always taken care of any problems I've had with the gear and my stuff has held up well. I really like some of the Liquid Force boards, but haven't made the jump.

I really like my LF Trip 138. The board has taken whatever's been thrown at it. The bindings on it originally were the Pro Suctions, and they sucked. They dry rotted in two years and basically disintegrated. I emailed LF numerous times as I felt it was absolutely ridiculous that they would come apart so fast. No response at all!!! So, I put Hyperlite Byerlys on it...much better.

I have only wakeborded twice in my life and took two worse falls on a hyperlite than any ski I have ever owned or borrowed so they get my vote.
