Default funKink USA edition

Just wondering how wide the stance is on the 53, the website said it has an extra set of inserts compared to the funkink. But then it also said under the specs that the stance width on bowth of them is 59 wich is kinda narrow. Also I'm wondering how the funkinkusa rides switch I'm used to just riding a twin. I don't have a way to demo one so I'm grateful for any and all feedback you can give. Thanks I've heard a few great reviews so far.

Did you really just ask a question and answer it all in the same post?

thats why I'm asking because the website is wrong. it says they are bowth the same 59 witch is Obviously not true because thats one the main things that make the USAfunkink different, is that extra set of inserts.

Let me try this again. Look at a picture of each board and pay attention to the spacing of the inserts.

rides switch fine, theres no difference in the base. how tall are you? cos i had to narrow my stance a bit by a cm or 2 (Previously rode a ET 147 maxed out, to a FK 149) (edit: im 5'9")

Thanks for the feedback. I'm 5'11 or so and 145lbs. I usually ride a 54 or 55 and a 24-25 in stance. The 57 is bigger than what I want so I'm going with a 53 funkink usa or a capita indoor survival 54.........not sure yet.
