Driver 3.0 SITD replica just in. 6'0 x 19.25 x 2.5. Not particularly thrilled about the paint scheme, at least the logos are sort of minimalistic. The board itself however feels absolutely epic. Will sit between a Sub Driver 2 (5'11 x 19.5 x 2.44) and a Driver 2 round (6'2 x 19.25 x 2.44). Had a stock Driver 2 6'1 squash a while ago, at the same volume the rails on the Driver 3 feel more refined and it's narrower through the tail.

Epic. This is a scaled up custom correct? I’ve fondled the 5’11s before and they look like absolutely ripping good wave shortboards. Where did you order from? How long did it take?

these were the dims I could choose from, no option to go custom. got lucky, it was just was I was looking for after I owned a 6'1 x 19.38 x 2.44 driver 2 squash which felt slightly long (me 6'2 185). ordered from olatu in spain, I think they are available with "core retailers" around the world. took about 12 weeks. the driver 2 had a surprising bottom end, but yes, ripping good wave shortboard was the idea :)

It's going to be a very twinny fall. Lane Splitter against the Twinsquishman for fun. Does it get any better than this?!?!?

LS 5'8 x 19.5 x 2.5 vs. TSQM 5'7 x 20 x 2.35

The Lane Splitter has A LOT more rocker... the Twinsquishman is almost dead flat. Don't remember the Twinsman being quite that flat. I think they may have relaxed the rocker on this version.

Took the CC lane splitter out in some HH Santa Cruz waves yesterday. Will post up a more thorough review when I've had a chance to get a few sessions on it but initial feedback is super positive. For anyone considering this board, the biggest callout that I'd make is that this is definitely a high-performance twin IMO and it has a decent amount of rocker in the nose. It's very solid and positive off the back foot.

All the CC boards I've fondled seem to have significant nose rocker and a lot of volume through the nose too.
The two that stood out for me as looking especially tasty were the Lane Splitter and the Myconaut.

Finally got my Pyzel AstroPop in Electralite (epoxy) after a 5 month waiting period, had to repair the nose as when it was send to me the nose was damage (and needed to send it back for repair). Happy for my UKs summer board (and probably all year rounder) Just need to test it ...... probably first test in the Bristol Wave Pool

Doesnt look too rockered.

It's hard to see it in the photo below but the Lane Splitter has way more nose flip and a bit more tail rocker than this Twinsman. When I look at that photo you posted above that looks like a good amount of nose flip and entry rocker to me. At least for a board that you might expect to be kind of a small wave twin fin.

I think the thick nose flattens the deck rocker on the Lane Splitter, making it look modestly rockered. But there's a ton of realestate between the nose and that concrete.

When showing the rocker it would be cool if you took a photo of the rocker.

I find the round tail outline visually appealing but chubby Craig liked his. maybe too small tho.

I dont need a rocker comparison but I'd love to hear a ride review comparison once you have had some time on the LS.

Thanks
Yeah for sure. I see overlap between these boards for sure don't see them totally being in the same category.

The Twinsman is much wider, has quite a bit more volume (1.5L I think?), and was kind of ordered to be a grovelor. The Lane Splitter is definitely not a grovelor and meant for fun, punchy waves under HH. I'll still do a comparison for you though.
