Sentury also makes their cores so that women's specific boards are slightly softer in flex and have been doing so for about 5 years now. I have a friend who will be picking up one of their Enlighten 157's very soon. She was also previously considering the Brandywine, which I am sure is a great board, just a little over priced. FYI, a hand built in Reno, Nv Sentury deck, Voile interface and skins for less than the cost of a stand alone Prior. PM me for an even lower discounted price!
