I tried the last Mamba 104. I was not impressed. I like the Grip very much. But the 102 for onshore lacks for me a bit the ability to hold speed in the bottom turn in mushy conditions. Probably lack of technic. I understand that you changed the mamba. But didnt understand what exactly. Can you give more details. Kind regards Joerg
Hi Joerg, no changes, the Mamba shapes are 100% the same, most of our boards nowadays are running on 2-3 yr shape lifetimes, some even longer. Surprised you did not like the Mamba, for more speed in onshore/onshore turns, you could also try the FreeWaves?
I haven't tried the Mamba but the FreeWave is very good in the waves for a FSW.
