Yeah, to be fair, other manufacturers are doing exactly the same. :-D

Which other company out there had enough balls to keep repainting and selling the exact same stuff for at least 4 seasons? :rollgrin:

I'll send a box of cookies to the one who'll manage to find at least a single difference between these 2 boards:

Here's another keecker, the bottome one - 2018 - does everything at least 10 times better than the upper - 2015 - one!!! :thumb: :naughty:

to be fair... every brand is doing the same.

but the Bandit 2016 and 2017 changed much in the tips.

Is it only weird for me that on the Fone website, the Signature Carbon is heavier then the Mitu carbon?
(the Signature has strap inserts, which is extra weight)
There is also a mistake with the volume on the Mitu carbon...IMO
