Comments about Slingshot Whip Wakeboard 2012:

Best board I've ever ridden! Bought it couple months back and couldn't be happier with it. Im used to riding fins, but this board without the fins rides so awesome. Build quality is excellent. The only issue is the bottom doesnt have a layer for protection on rails and ramps, so it looks pretty gnarly after a couple runs, but it wears well. Purely aesthetic issue. The finish is the best ive seen on ny board. My first slingshot, and i think im converted. Out!

Good Cable Board

By 

from Alliance Wake

Comments about Slingshot Whip Wakeboard 2012:

The board edges well and does indeed hold some great speed. Big problem for me though was behind the boat, the tip would cut into the wake instead of ride through it. This would cause me to come off the wake off balance almost every time, and it killed a lot of the pop for me. I was really excited about this board, but unfortunately it didn't work for me behind the boat. For those just cable riding though, it should be great.
