Hey Guys,
I ended up getting the Global. I thought the construction was better. Heavier but I'm not concerned with a little more weight(I ride powered up and like to launch big airs too), I wanted a board with durability. Also the fit and finish was top shelf, head and shoulders above anything else that I looked at and I looked at many brands. Like Taut and Paff said the intricate lay up of composite materials, epoxy, pvc, bamboo and carbon fiber is what I was looking for. It's probably the most sexy board I have ever owned too. I really like the looks of the bamboo with carbon fiber rails with stylish graphics on the board with matching deck-pads and fins. The deck pad, straps and fins all match the board in quality plus the board bag is a nice finishing touch.
I only got to ride the board in windy chop the first day. Yesterday I got head high waves in 25kts and just had so much fun. I really like the speed of quads, so the fin five option was a big plus. The board had very solid bottom turns and nice quick gouges off the lip. I felt the board was fast and didn't have any of the twitchiness that I've felt in some boards.
So, the pros were the shape, construction, fit and finish, 5 fin option, nice straps, deck-pad, and fins(fiberglass/honeycomb) and board bag and lastly the looks.
The only cons for me would be the price, and for someone else maybe the weight.
Thanks for the input,
Aloha KP
