What are you missing from the current one?

So difficult to recommend boards as there are a million different ones out there. I try to borrow boards occasionally just to get a feel for how they differ, but even then there is only so many boards you get to ride and obviously testing a board for 30 mins won't make me an expert. My impression is that therefore people tend to recommend what they themselves ride.
My current 2015 spectrum 148x44 is fine as a TT, but a bit of a hog in handling and weight. Being a 2015 model spectrum, my 2021, which just arrived an hour ago, is just what I had in mind. It is redesigned, thinner, lighter and 144x43. Whats not to like, not to mention the steal I got on it and H1 pads. It looks like my Ace but with a thinner profile and materials, little more flex, and rocker.
If you got a 01 model Spectrum 144, Congrats! -it's a great board. There isn't a 2021 collection from Cabrinha though. Starting last fall, we started using 00, then 01S in Feb 2021, then 01F in Sept 2021, etc. Enjoy.
Yeah, the 2020 spectrum is red, and what everyone is selling mistakenly as the 2021 is blue. I didnt like the red. Its the only thing that came up when searching on cabrinha spectrum for 2020 or 2021. Who knew…..
