Westozzy,
The Raptor pro Ltd is more free ride and good board for heavy chop condition. due to his rocker and concave shape.

If you were looking for fast board with great pop you should check the Raptor Pro they are totally different boards.

Okay fair enough. I thought the pro LTD was just a raptor pro but in carbon. Okay ta. Been riding the LTD a fair bit lately, really starting to like it hey. Also have a crazy fly cruise pro, man CF make some good boards hey.

The name is confusing.
but they are very different boards.

both are carbon board, they both have the same outline.
but they have totally different rocker and concave, so they have different feeling in the water.

CrazyFly manufacture high quality board !! :cool2:

watch the movie :jump:

All
Thanks so much for sharing your feedback... So here is the conclusion to my dilemma... I am so lucky... I ended up getting both, the raptor pro ltd and the la luz.... And I'm loving it. Both are great boards.., the ltd is a bit more freeride and a bit lighter, but has plenty of pop for freestyle. The la luz is a bit more freestyle and a bit heavier than ltd, but still super comfortable. Both are awesome boards, and are the perfect match for my rpm's. cannot be happier. Can't go wrong with either one.

Ps. Was lucky enough and got both boards as bday presents, one from my wife and the other from parents in law. What can I say... I am just lucky. Well, the only caveat is that twisted my ankle kiting in Cabarete last week, so now I'm wearing a boot hoping to recover in about 6 weeks. Hard landing not paying attention :(

Anyway, I will be back... Soon. :)

Think wind!!!
