Has anyone here ever ridden one?  Is it worth the hype?

I like mine alot(2009)..  But is it worth 1K?  I honestly can't say...  I can ride my set up backcountry Pow and go to the park..   I try not to do 2inch pipe rails but everything else...

Base is fast enough for me and stable at high speeds..

I have not had a chance to ride a Cygnus X1, but I have been on a method (200 less) and the board was about half the weight as most boards...when you're used to a heavy ass NS board the method turns like nothing you've ever felt. /comparison to method

So is the method the same board as the Vapor?

The vapor is more of a freestyle board-lots of pop and holds an edge really well. The method is labeled as a "5" feel on burtons site but feels stiffer than that...Bottom line Vapor is more park oriented however if you want to tax the mountain with it, you're looking good. I wouldn't take the method to the park even though it's labeled as "all-mountain"

So are you sold on the Method?  I had the vapor (first year model) but then returned it... 

I think the Method might be lighter than the cygnus..  I do know the cygnus can take a beating..  (I'm about 180 with all that gear on)  I've done alot of stupid drops with this board and the flex is fine on landings

I love the method...I think it just generates hate because of the price tag and brand name. I have yet to try the cygnus but that is on my to-do list(Lib demo's are soooo hard to find ) I tried my method out with some Mission Est and it was the lightest board I've felt by far.. yeah you could say I'm sold on the method

Ok.. So between the Method vs Vapor vs Sherlock :: I can't buy two(can't justify it) so I have to pick one.  Been on the 2008 vapor but it seems to have advanced in 2010 or 2011.  I do need a board that I can take to the park(like kickers and boxes but rails are not necessary)

I take the cygnus to the park and not worry about compressing the core vs the vapor's alum honeycomb(but not really sure if thats true about compression).  Which is why I think the sherlock might be the best pick? to add to my quiver. 

any thoughts

Sherlock if you are more inclined to the park. I think they made the new vapor more park oriented, too. I think the Vapor's graphics are SICK! Having only rode on the Vapor, I'd chose that one. However, I cannot make the decision for you.
