Looking for a new board so I'm reaching out to the forum members to let me know your suggestions based on what I am looking for.

Here are my specs:

- Size range is 134-136
- Medium flex
- Moderate rocker (less than my Cabrinha Custom which has a lot of rocker)
- Lightweight

I want to use this board for more powered sessions so please offer your feedback on the boards you have ridden and if they fall into my above specs. The Nobile Fifty50 seems pretty close to what I am describing based on some of the reviews I have read but it's impossible for me to get one to demo.

Anyone have suggestions?

A lot of boards fit your requirements, blade deuce is one among them. Nice board, a bit to light for my taste.

If you have the opportunity to demo a Shinn Monk or SuperShinn, I would suggest either of those as being worth a try.

I'm riding a crazy fly raptor ltd-136x41.Solid all around board,good low-end,endless topend,carves like its on rails,loads up and jumps great,and for me one of the great features is how it handles mach 5 ,directly down wind, kite loop landings with excellent control.I'm 225 lbs.

Check out the new Cabrinha Tronic wide...136. Flex is softer than the Custom and the XCaliber.
Justs BIG nd is smooth in the chop
I switched from the 136 Cusstom to the 136 Tronic :)

How much less rocker does the Tronic have versus the Custom? If I could find a board about 10% less rocker than the Custom I feel I would have found exactly what I am looking for.

I will definitely check it out. I have a buddy who has one on order so I will get to ride it soon. Thanks for the heads up.

Very nice board but the Raptor LTD is a stiff flex board and I am definitely wanting a board with medium flex. Great board none the less.
