I owned a North Jaime 138 last summer. Monarch isn't too harsh on my knees, no worse than the Jaime or my Carved Imperator 6. Toby is correct too, comfy pads make a difference. SP QSR and Msr pads are my go to.
Liked the Apex bindings, but I prefer the ratchet to the velcro when having to go from bare feet to boots back and forth.

I would have probably bought the KL Pro if they did it in the 135.... Both graphics are fine, but I prefer the 5cm G10 fins that come with the KL. I did manage to score some 5cm Naish G10 fins.
(huge thanks to Angelina at Naish USA!)

How light is it compared with the textreme boards?

The Textreme Jaime 138 was super light. My 135 Monarch is a tank. I'll bet a legit 1/2 pound plus difference. That said I don't notice the extra weight jumping and in the air. I don't think I'll be able to break a Monarch...

Lol... still have a Naish Flash Mutant !

Nothing wrong with Pro models, as they can offer something distinctive.... i.e. the Flash is the only Mutant I have ever seen with channels on the nose.
