The new flex boards are super light and tons of fun. I have a Company Severance and love it! Ronix bindings.

Which Ronix bindings do you have?

I've been riding the 08 Ones for the past 2 seasons. I'll be switching to the 09-10 Cells as soon as I find the right deal.

I love love love my Shane Watson open toe bindings 2010 and I also have this years matching Shane Watson board. I previously had 2007/2006 Shane Watsons and loved them too, super comfy, easy to get on/off, lots of padding for those hard landings in the flats. I rented 5 different 2010 bindings at the beginning of the season and stuck with the Shane Watsons.

The Shanes and Watsons are two different boards/boots. :confused:

I just got back from the local wakeboard shop and checked out the '09 Ronix Relic bindings and the '10 Ronix Mana board. Seems like a good setup and pretty lightweight. I'm still looking though.

Check out the Liquid Force "FLY" boards. I have the Shane model and its extremely light weight.

I have the 2010 Watson closed toe. Super light bindings. They are on a 2009 PS3.

I have a Company Recruit 139 flex board with 09 Ronix cell bindings. Definitley the lightest setup I've found or ridden. The board is so light and the Ronix bindings are "baseless" so there is a lot less plastic and you have a closer connection to the board. I love the setup. Try a flex board before you buy anything. I haven't found a downfall of flex boards yet!

I'll second that.

There isn't anybody local that sells flex boards, I'll have to look into it. The majority of people I talk to keep telling me the Ronix bindings are some of the lightest out there. I wish companies would list the weight of the boards on their websites, it would make this a whole lot easier.

I have two Gator Boards, Legend and Gator Signature, Lightest you'll find! The Bindings (Gonzales, and Fleetwood) are nearly non-existent weight-wise. I got the Legend new on ebay for $138.00 ( Retail over $400) and the Signature new for $90.99 this past week. They are unbelievable at Customer support! Will fix or replace it, wherever you buy it! I've dealt with Hyperlite, and Obrien, they are both very good at Customer Support, but the Gatorboard People are Phenomenal. I sent and e-mail about a lace lock breaking and one of the principals called me within minutes from his cell! I'm a cheapskate and always search out the best for the best deals, and for Wakeboards you can't touch the value.
