I had a couple of sessions with one on the weekend, feels awesome. Sharp rail (step rail so board still has volume) and holds nicely. Little more difficult to do slides with though.

The prankster is twice as thick as your pickle fork. It's a newbie board thickened up for them. The 150 spoiler is a better wakeboard. It goes upwind better than your 142 pickle, and should have more range. I've ridden the Spoiler, only seen the prankster.

I agree with dwight, the prankster is an entry level twintip, they've taken quite a decent design and then beefed it up with more volume, the people around here that had em, didn't like them and have moved on. The spoiler is definatly a bigger option, the comprimise cabrinha took in beefing the board up just screwed it...

I used to ride one. (150). Very easy board. The extra volume dont bother. Edges well. Excellent contruction (I had the carbon one).

Cons: Tracks too much for my taste (2'' fins), too stiff.

It is a good board for riding a 14 not super powered.

thanks for the replies, I was worried that the extra volume way ruin the wake feel and ride. I am kinda stuck deciding what to get, i like to ride wake style but with the winds around here i cant always get on the water powered up, so i endup just sinking, any other ideas on boards?

Extra volume in the form of thickness is the wrong way to go. You want extra width. This is what makes you go in wind holes, while still allowing you to edge in higher winds.

Look for a wider board with square tail for more power in light wind.

If you ride in the ocean a lot, a wave tray with bindings is a lot more fun than what you were riding. You can order the width you need too.

Actually the Prankster is pretty wide. It's wider than the Spoiler. The volume only helps in the luls, or if you bog in the transitions. But i don't think the extra volume really hurts it.
