Grabbed the stock 5-8 from my local shop I am about 155lbs, slightly lower volume for me. Hard to put into words how this board works, makes me feel super confident on drops and felt like I was surfing like a grom again, I am in my fifties. The Heckler, is fast, drivey, really just a load of fun, downside, if you want to call it that, is the quiver overlap, because this can do a lot. And for this shape or design, the torsion spring really make it work, you can flick it around and just go hard. Highly recommend!
My torsion spring Heckler is the best small wave board ever. It is magic. It's my second Heckler. I loved my first PU Heckler. I thought it was magic, but the torsion spring model is even better. I'm way beyond happy with it. I ride it with the MR twin + small trailer fin set up
