SS RPM 9m 2016 vs 2017

Postby finisher » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:22 pm

Hi,
I have possibility to buy a brand new RPM 9m from either 2016 or 2017 year. Is it worth to pay 100 euros more for the 2017? Are there any significant differences between them?

2017 RPM has more Hang Time than 2016 RPM, a lot better in Old School Tricks, and more friendly for beginners.

Cheers.
