I have a wynn rocket very similar to the one posted. I like it. its a good go to board for nj. I have a tri quad converter. I like it. Waves generally need to have either curve or a little push i.e. not a groveler type board. I ride in in waist to head high. I have been experimenting with it as a quad and it holds rail a little better as a quad cause the tail is so wide, i suppose. Once you get the board going its fast and connects sections well. Skates over flat sections sooo easy. It has a nice tight turning radius and enough tail rocker to release the tail.
If you are looking to replace an everyday shortboard with something more fun and shorter. Replacing something like a flyer I think the rocket is a good choice. If you are looking to replace like a groveler its not a groveler. If you are looking to replace a hpsb its not that either. Hope that helps.
If anyone has another I am interested. I am 5"11' 160. Not sure what is a good size
Hey man, I have a 5 10 lost motivator, which is the same as a rocket but a tad more beefy. I am 6'3 and 210 lb and the 5'10 seems perfect. I can get up in waist high, yet it has performed awesome in shoulder to about head high. I use it with thruster set up. At your size you could prob get away with a smaller rocket, like a 58, 59, 510, etc. Good luck!
I have a 5'10 with MB3 Futures and carbon fiber tail rails thats in like new condition...would consider a decent offer.
I am 6'2 about 175 and i ride a 6'0, 20, 2.5 rocket. +1 on riding it in anything over head. slid out in a tube and my fin got ripped out. thank god it didnt break the plug. i think i could have went shorter, thinner, and less wide but it still works great in anything with push just like everyone has said. it's a good board for a decent day on the EC.
where can i find a v2 rocket? those boards are sweet
