Triple8Sol One of the reasons I ended up choosing the Airobic is because it has the Twin TBT instead over the Fun Kink with its Freestyle TBT with a tiny bit of setback.

Bizzybox I would like to know if anyone else has any more input on the fun.kink? I got an '08/'09 for the beginning of this season and all the reviews or thoughts about it were all very vague and many people always suggested other bataleon's over it. So if anyone would like to express more views on the fun.kink I would be very appreciative!

Edit: I've yet to go riding with it, other then the strap in, in the house kinda thing

eastCOASTkills Good choice!

Triple8Sol Well I decided to go with an Airobic b/c it's a true twin with their Twin TBT, while the Fun Kink has the FS TBT with a tiny bit (only 5mm) setback. Thanks to the few that helped me with my decision.

Patrollerer I use my bataleon 09 fun.kink for everything, i'd say it's an all rounder though i can ride any board with ease though. I don't get any chatter at all going 70 km down ice, yes i go down ice to go faster, only problem i had was that i started fish tailing once but that was because i was tired . It holds its self in the park too and drops of cliffs. The board is amazing for doing rails i can a hold a one along a rail with ease or hold nose slides. The board holds it very well. I'm only 63 kgs i wouldn't bother with it if you were over err 80 kg?.

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.

X2. Especially if you are planning to hit some boxes/rails with it. The wider 'flat' part of the TBT on the Airobic will make jibbing much easier.

The Airobic is a nice board...It's noodle-tastic. It's not gona win any speed competitions and I wouldn't take it off a 40 footers or anything like that...But it slays the butters and is a pretty damn good all around board for days where you are a park rat, or days where you just want to dick around on the hill.

Though, this season, the Evil Twin has a sintruded base...Something to consider.

landonk5 ive ridden my buddy's funkink and its pretty similar to my evil twin.
although i havent ridden the airobic, i think that the airobic is sort
of a slightly softer, twin version of the funkink. correct me if im
wrong please.

How about an explanation of why you say that? Have you even ridden either/both?
