Re: Impact Vests in 2020/21 - A focus on rib protection

For those of you with vest experience, which do you prefer — pullover or zipper? It seems like when wearing a wetsuit, a zipper might be a better option. Shirtless and in warm-water, the pullover seems like it becomes a solid option, but I don’t think I’d want to fight neoprene over neoprene. Zippe...

@zlatko23

If my Mystic Majestic X with Stealth rope bar still rides up then I'll sew neoprene inside the back of the impact vest to stop it riding up on my wet suit (plenty of 1mm neoprene in the garage left over from a previous job).

Re: Impact Vests in 2020/21 - A focus on rib protection

This is what three broken left ribs, that forced me to sleep in an armchair for 8 weeks, looked like. Don't cough, don't sneeze, don't laugh, etc. :( Caused by a crash and going over the rumble strip "quite quickly" while closed circuit motorcycle racing. The blood slowly drained down my left leg in...

Re: Impact Vests in 2020/21 - A focus on rib protection

One advice I'd give you: get one that keeps your harnas low : im guessing that makes a difference in protecting your lower ribs. Heal fast! Was previously a seat harness user. Now use a waist harness which rides up with my impact vest, but without the impact vest stays where it is. So I've just ord...

Re: Mystic Majestic vs Mystic Majestic X: differences in fit and comfort

Out today on a 9m in 22-28 knots without an impact vest and no harness ride up. Same conclusions as above.

Still very surprised but obviously pleased!

Nothing else to add.

Yeah but we all just think our board is the best (mine is of course).
To the contrary, I don't think that my board or any other board is "the best", it just depends what you want from a board.

Re: Mystic Majestic vs Mystic Majestic X: differences in fit and comfort

Second session yesterday with 7m but would have been better on 9m. Same comments as before but this time I wore an old impact vest and the Majestic X did slowly ride up! :roll: So need an impact vest with grip in the back to stop ride up, such as a ProLimit half padded vest. What I found the first t...

Re: Carbon vs Wood made boards

I don’t see why a well made board with a carbon layup shouldn’t be strong as well. It’s no coincidence that carbon fibre is used pretty much everywhere that lightness and strength are a priority. Here is why. Strength, stiffness, toughness, are SEPERATE THINGS! They are not interchangeable, nor rel...

Re: Mystic Majestic vs Mystic Majestic X: differences in fit and comfort

Wasn't going to say anything until I had a couple more decent sessions but was out yesterday for the first time with the Majestic X in 7m weather (26-28 knots), and one thing that really surprised me was the amount of support for my lower back! Because many years ago I had a lower back slipped disc...
