Thanks for the help man. Sorry if I dogged you with that first post! Slingshot has won me over with their support. Slingshot has come a long way. I rode some of the original gear and WOW...massive improvements over the years.The technology has frustrated the shit out of me since 2000, but now it's finally here. No excuses not to be able to throw any trick imaginable on the new gear. Most importantly I don't feel like I'm going to die by my murder/suicide leash and ghetto rigged pulley bar! I'll donate it to a museum.
But you could buy LF escalades who have both inserts for 6inch and 8inch.
Thanks! I'll look into it. Seems like it should work.
Anyways 132 is gonna feel two small probably - you dont use that size for cable either do you ?
I can appreciate a wider stance when I am wake boarding, but kiting I usually have a more narrow stance for maneuverability in the waves. I used to ride wide, but its weird in the surf. I bought the 09 lunacy 132 and the 09 fuel 11m. Most cash I have ever dropped on gear...like ever, but in 2009 its worth it.
132 sounds small, but this board is crazy wide. Wider than any wake board I have ever rode. FYI: I'm 175lbs, 5'10". I like the pop, but I don't like the swing weight of larger boards. Pop is never an issue with a C-kite and strong winds. Seems like on a small board I am less likely to catch an edge when I land lit.
I was riding the misfit 129 and it was a little too short and I got sprayed in the face half the time. It also sank on me a lot. The 135 looks like a cool light wind board, but I only go when its 20+. The Lunacy is WIDE. It has sharp rails, but still...probably too wide for the cable. Wakeboards are a completely different animal. Since I have nothing to do tomorrow I may take it for a spin at ski rixen if its open. Knowing the management... it probably is.
Thanks for the help guys,
