Yes - bit of a downside if the mount isn't back far enough unless you use the nobile wings.Adventure Logs wrote: ↑Thu Sep 12, 2019 12:09 amI’ve been asking custom board builders for the last couple years to make exactly this so I’m pretty stoked. I’m sure there will be compromises and it looks like they’re still using M6 mounting inserts so I wouldn’t jump it but this will be the ultimate travel board. I’m curious on the weight. Looks like decent rocker so good pop and chop protection on twintip. I hope the mounting is back enough that it’s useable for my 633. I’m assuming that it will be similar to the infinity so strapless should be no problem and since I won’t jump it, I don’t care that the straps will be too far back. I’ll be buying one.
Total agreement here. Hack on both fronts. It solves a travel and portability problem for sure but its a compromise on actual performance. I would rather pay the extra to transport the right gear because the quality of the session is most important. If the travel constraints are so big as to trump all else....then its a good solution.Horst Sergio wrote: ↑Thu Sep 12, 2019 1:35 amFor sure wanted by many, but ...
... I still don't see any solution in the video to solve the basic problem:
It will be to stiff for a twintip and to soft for a foilboard.
This was my experience, when I tried this 5 years ago and also the experience from people who tried the neilpryde one design dings what ever it was called ...
... if the basic problem to be able to switch between stiffnesses isn't solved, I think it will just be another confidence trickster
The only one as far I know who tried to reinforce, in this case a directional, for foil use with an extra plate was marc shin, but impression from outside was even here not so succesful, as it is also not just screwing another board under it, but having the load flow for both situation prepared within the construction without to much of extra material (weight) but also without creating weak points in one of the modes ... in my eyes not easy.
But interested to hear if Nobile seriously solved it, till now the impression is: No
