Here's a 12' PSH gun in perfect shape... Just in case someone is interested..

It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.

Great thread! I love guns and love surfing them in their element here in northern california, and wanted to give the 12 foot Jimmy Lewis Bombora some love. I have both that and the 12' psh, and while I love the psh, the jl is my go to when it gets big. The psh feels a bit more cruisery slow, doesn't blast through sections as well, and just doesn't feel as "elegant" to me. Hard to describe. There's a few critical differences in the shape, dims below. Could definitely just be my fin setup though. My JL is one of the earlier models and it's single fin only, and I ride my psh as a 2+1. I don't mean to bash the psh, I love it too, but the jl has a big advantage: it's still in production.

I also have the Son of Bombora, which I like too, but the 12 is my go to when it gets huge because I'm a wuss and the SOB doesn't have the same long and lean feel. And I just love the drop on the 12. I love everything about that board. I could hang it on a wall and just stare at it. But I hate carrying it!

Should mention, I'm about 6' on a good day, probably about 220# on a bad day.
