    I've ridden 2 and don't think they are worth the extra money. if they were priced similar to poly boards I might buy one buy the cost to benefit just isn't there.

    i don't think half of these people know what they're talking about.

    with that said, i have an AVISO, 5'10" mayhem shape, performance shortboard...
    it retails for around $1200, i paid $800 for mine.... (gotta love working at a surf shop)

    for the first month i had it, i hated it... getting used to the flex, and the quick responce the board has... it was just weird getting used to it.

    as for people saying it is "stiff", well,... i don't think you know your butt from your balls...
    these boards have an unbelievable amount of flex.

    i've had mine for a little over 1 year, without a single pressure ding... NOT ONE!
    up until about 2 weeks ago... these genius of a grom thought it would be a good idea to drop in on me, i did a floater on the section that he closed out, but he didn't make the drop...

    i air-dropped about 3 feet right on to his fin, and it punched a hole about 4 inches long and 1 inch wide in the hull of my board...

    it didn't "sink like an anchor" like someone said.... it didn't even sink for that matter... it just became very sluggish, kinda like trying to ride a SevenSurf super fish (piece of sh!t)

    some good ole fiberglass and black spray paint, and she's as good as new...
    it doesn't take a rocket scientist to fix a board.


    so basically, if you've got a grand to drop out of your ass, do it... especially if you're like me and buckle 3 fiberglass boards a year.

    yeah, use a leash string then just put your leash on that.... the drain plugs are very strong and i've never had a problem.
