How does the fun kink feel in terms of stiffness compared to the Evil Twin then? It should be a bit softer right? I already have a Riot 155 so it kind of covers what an ET would do for me.
The Airobic doesn't suck ass or anything for all mtn fun but if you like being able to absolutely rail carves and feel 100% locked in on the Riot, you won't feel that way on the Airobic. The difference between the 2 is almost night and day.

If you're just after a jib/butter board or a board to learn to spin/pull out sketch landings, the Airobic kills it in those areas.

IMO, the fun.kink is going to be just as soft as the Airobic since it's rated a 3.5 flex to the Airobic's 4-3-4 flex.
