There are 2012 Malativas on sale at the moment and I want to know if the malativas have any significant upgrades for 2013?
Would the 2012 malativas be a good binding for what I want?
Seems to me they would but I have no first hand experience with them.
No changes at all. I personally prefer the winged version of the Malavitas just because I think it's more comfortable haha.
Malavitas will only be slightly softer than the Cartels in the highbacks.
