Whos got a review on this? I am thinking about getting one without riding it first cuz I can't demo it anywhere. Of those of you who have ridden one, what do you think? I've only ridden an old Cassette so what should I expect? Will it be a good size for me? Im 6'3 190. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

i have the catalyst 112, and i weigh 140, it is perfect for me. It is a really good skate, there has been few post on it already, u should check that out: http://forums.wakeboarder.com/viewtopic.php?t=6287&highlight=catalyst+116 and http://forums.wakeboarder.com/viewtopic.php?t=6538&highlight=catalyst+116 its also a good choice because it is made like a wakeboard, so it will last longer and look good for quite a while. I never rode a wakeskate before i got mine, and i got up on my 2nd dockstart, and 1st deep water start. After riding it twice i am doing lipslides, small ollies, and pops off the wake. I would highly reccamend it, if you want to get serious about wakeskating or you just want a high quality board that will last a long time.

to me (6'1, 190lbs) a 116 wakskate just seem big to me. I thought the 112 was a decent size. My fav was the 107 (but I was riding the cable). I haven't ridden the new skate (so I haven't ridden the 116), but IMO just seems a little big.

I agree, I like the byerly size better than the 116. If you plan on doing a lot more wake to wake tricks than tech it would be better. I prefer something smaller though and I'm about 180.

I just got my 112 under warranty, and I was wondering how you guys think it compares to the 4-trac? thanks.

Just got my, 116 it is so sweet, it has great hold with out the fins and it will break loose when ever you want it to. I would recomend not even using the fins if you get one.i got mine at Wakeside.com
