Default Just picked me up some Forum Republic's!

Anybody else use these? Guy in the store said they are cracking for a bloke of my height/weight (6'1, 195lbs) who want's to charge down and jump anything that comes my way.

Went for the red's too:

I'm trying to decide between these and the shaka's, or be cheap and try some of the recons from last year.. Been like 7 years since I've bought any gear and starting all over fresh again this year

The Shaka's are slightly softer. Same glass content, but the Shaka's are short glass and the Republics are long glass.

That's what I've noticed when comparing, which make me lean toward Shaka.. How does recon truly compare to either of these 2, or the k2 hurrithane.. Kinda between all of these
