Bummer, I'm not in the UK. May I ask why you are selling it? Have you ridden the other Hadlow Pro board in comparison? (I love that board, but the dual concave / channels appealed to me on the wakeboard).

You mean a wake-style board (stiff, lot's of rocker, bottom contours,,,)?

You have Naish Arcade, SS Asylum, North gambler, LF DLX, Best Profanity, Tona POP, and others.

You should try Tona POP. A very very nice board. I have LF dlx.

I thought the Hadlow still had a little bit of flex, ie a little bit more than a Cab Custom? How does the DLX compare? seen these going at good prices.

Got a decent board with a fair bit of flex for the sloppy days, just want a dedicated wakestyle board for the better days. But don't want a super stiff board,as there is always a small amount of chop. Hadlow seems to be on the money (but you cant get them). So what's the closest? (flex pattern+bottom profile).

I can only compare DLX Arcade and POP.
Arcade and DLX are the stiffest (they are quite stiff through hole board, probably more than others as well). POP is a bit softer, but the flex is in the tips.

Arcade has the most rocker (a lot, must be something like cab) , than there is POP and DLX.

I like DLX a lot only complain that i have it has probably the weakest bottom of all the three (and others as well) It will get ugly and used up on more getto sliders very quicky. Hell is no different than others LF board (no grind base). POP is the absolute tank, that thing is bulletproof. Arcade is also very good.
