Also worried they are too far elevated off the board, but know for sure.
The OG hyperlight systems where a little higher, but the new ones are no higher than your Ronix.

Re: Slalom specific twintip

Why would anyone want to race a twin tip as it is the slowest and least efficient board on the water compared to race boards or foils? Sounds like a donkey race to me... Kinda the same reason someone would do a spec race series I guess? But hell driving a Miata, or an econo box fast is way more fun...

Re: Moses Quality Control is ... you decide

That's a lot of voids, especially around that one insert. No idea if that's a vacuum molded part or a wet layup. But that again seems like a lot of voids for a part that carries a lot of load. I've done wet layup stuff that wasn't degassed and it has come out better than that in my kitchen. If you c...

Re: New Takoon SynapS Bar with unique quick release

LOLOLOLOL so much marketing garbage. Why not just say "all the modern features that better bars have had for almost a decade." Also that figure 8 leash attachment is shown misused two times in the video.
