Have tried original Bronq in largest size - it was much more lively then my monk. Crazy amount of rocker on that board - really soft landings and really nice pop. Board was definitely too big for me, but felt that it could be awesome with boots, even though it is not meant for them.
78 kg at that time
Congrats! Curious about what you think of the board. I have chosen the 43 mm fins, seems to have enough upwind capabilities and easy to change direction with the board.NorwayIsCold wrote: ↑Fri Oct 30, 2020 8:41 pmJust pulled the trigger and have bought Bronq Backspacer 135 by 42 just now after all the replies you guys posted. It was on good sale in local dealer and it seems there is no difference between backspacer and Luigi models.
Will post a review when I get to ride it, which could take a while as it is cold here in Norway at the moment.
I can if you wish!
What's your weight and how tall are you? I am undecided (again) between getting 136 and 138 Ronson. I am 75kg and 187cm tall :/MikeBirt wrote: ↑Thu Nov 05, 2020 10:42 amI can if you wish!
The Ronson I always found a bit twitchy for my style in my size (41 wide) but I had a bit of a revelation when I tested the next size up - 138x42. I really liked it - It has a more locked in directional feel than the more progressive nature of the ronson/monk/adhd, but it has more manners in 138, and certainly more bottom end and pop too. The 136 I found to be a bit nervous at high load, which is very odd.
So I do like the Ronson in 138, very much indeed.
The ADHD has more stability at stupid loads and sticks faster out of shape landings better - but the ronson has more mid range drive and pop.
The Bronq is more tactile, has more engagement and feels a bit more connected, but I would say the ronson has more drive through the range, and more pop, whilst being just as stable at high loads as the bronq.
The Monk has more low end drive and more power, with a more locked in rail and a stiffer, more powerful / effcient feel, better progressive carve (has more outline) and is great fun, but the ronson runs rings round it in high load stability.
I guess it all comes down to your personal riding style, and what the conditions at your local spot allow - there is no right and wrong answer.
