Actually, quality wise, Ronix and Hyperlite = shit. If you want boards that aren't the most agressive, more forgiving, but still ride amazing. I'd go for an O'brien pro model. Last year I rode the Decade, this year the Paradigm and the Format and I'd recommend any of them. The Format was by far my favorite, tons of pop when you cut properly and use a progressive edge, and still unreal soft landings. Plus a super light board.
O'Brien = Made in Dubai
Hyperlite + Ronix = Made in China
I saw 75 Ronix wakeboards get shipped back to the distributers because they were received and were dented, already delaminating and even some graphics were not complete and filled with Sharpie.
I've seen maybe 15 Ronix boards come for warranty, 2 Hyperlites and 1 O'Brien, and all have sold around the same amount, actually O'Brien the most.
Ride O'Brien if you want a good quality board with great features
