I am surprised Album doesn't stock offer more models with Asher's dimensions considering most of the IG, videos etc posted of the boards in action are Asher's. Even the descriptions revolve around Asher, and yet the dimensions tend to differ.
Just got back from a trip ,Greg do you move the twin placement forward as board length increases? For instance if a 5-8 has fins at 7" does a 6-8 also have fins at 7"? Apologies if you've already answered this question on here.
Back when I ordered these models-before they were official on any sight, etc-that's how Matt was sizing them for me. My lightbender is nowhere near the stock dims. It's much shorter and thicker. Really fun little rippy stick.I am surprised Album doesn't stock offer more models with Asher's dimensions considering most of the IG, videos etc posted of the boards in action are Asher's.

Having recently seen the light with the shorter board, they are super fun. Like everyone says, it is like skateboard. Even though I blew it last week surfing the 5' 4" Plasmic in too big of waves, I surfed a 5' 4" Will's fish that handled it. I likey these little boards.
It will be interesting to see where the recent addition Insanity fits in with my preferences. The under the arm test feels great - haha. I am quite stoked on surfing the Insanity.
Also, decided to pre-yellow the board by ordering the amber faux resin tint paint job.Thanks for all the info on this thread and the XTR thread. About to place my order on a 5’6” XTR Plasmic. Going with the 8.0 stringered edition per XTRs recommendation. Hope it goes good
At the start, I was not sure about having the board all black, so I went for the yellow. Let´s see...that yellow color looks kinda rad.
My friend and I were just talking about how I ordered my LB and TM rp with this exact setup in mind, but had a similar feeling about my TM... Then realized it was because I keep forgetting what I ordered it for big, juicy waves, and had been using it as a daily driver because it has a ton of range, but the rails are better suited for juice (ordered it that way).Anyone in here on the East Coast or surf punchy beach break? I am in NC and surf the Plasmic 90% of the time I surf (unless it’s really small or bigger/hollow). I can’t get off that thing. I got a Twinsman earlier this year but have found it really works best in a decent wave about chest high or bigger. I have not really clicked with it yet. I am thinking the Lightbender might be a better daily driver, what do you guys think?
