snowjab,

I was thinking about that, but I do not see any specs on the weight difference between the Pro and the HP? I know that the HP is lighter, but for 100.00 I need to see the numbers to justify the sale.

More like a $160 difference.
I was interested in the trice hp too, but while everyone says the HP is better, no one seems to be able to explain why.
It's supposed to be a bit lighter and greener (no fiberglass), but I don't know that I want to pay an extra $160 for that.

Bonus question: Any idea if the 2013 will have major changes or of it's staying the same?

If you like speed then you will see the difference to me its more solid at high speeds and landing jumps. I mostly freeride and hit a few jumps down the hill. Theyre both great but the HP is just faster. Going new and the 160 difference is more to think about as opposed to buying used and the difference only being half of that.

THe pure basalt used in the HP has a better ability to dampen the vibrations that riders complain about when they are going really fast. Normally, you would want a stiffer board to achieve a more damp ride, but the HP maintains similar flex but adds "dampability, dampness, damperocity" (take your pick). Basalt is a type of volcanic rock that they take and weave into a fiber. Much more earth friendly than the harsh resins/chemicals needed for fiberglass.

Wilson tennis rackets use this basalt tech in their high end rackets, because it dampens vibrations caused by the ball hitting the strings, without altering the flexibility of the racket.

So basically, when people say the board is faster, they are saying that they feel more comfortable going warp speed, because the board isn't vibrating as much.

Both versions have the same base. The HP model has the Columbian Gold Core, the regular model has the H-Pop core. The H-pop core is a blend of the Columbian Gold wood and other types of wood not named (I'm assuming it helps bring the price down for the non HP version).

Boosh.

Snowjab, what color bindings did you put on yours? The HP glitter makes it hard to match up any colors to it so I just went with Black Cartels.
