Hey if you have any more reviews on the FUN KINK usa I would love to hear what you think about it. I ride park 95% of the time since I work in one and spend 65% of my time jibbin around and on rails, the other 35% on jumps. I've been going back and forth between the ET 55, airobic 55 and the Fun Kink USA 53. I think I'm leaning more towards the Funkink. I'm 146lbs and 5'11. Thanks for any reviews. Ohh yeah Last year I got a proform but this year I can't get a reply back from them about one. If anyone knows how I could get in contact with them that would be great. Thanks. Or they might just be cutting back on proforms this winter.
Ive rode my new funkink usa for 3 days now. and in my opinion, with the FSTBT the feel of a triplebase board is alot more aggressive, that could be a good thing and bad. It took few runs to get used to it but once you get the feel, its smooth sailing from there on out.
Also the flex seems a bit softer than the 2008-9 funkink. it butters like a champ but not so much that you can fold the thing in half. as for rails and jibs, i think its great compared to the eviltwin, even with the smaller flat base it was easy to lock into 50-50s or even nose resses.
the board has a fair bit of pop too. not as much as the ET but considering the flex of the board its not bad at all.
i wasnt able to try out any kickers seeing its too early in the season
the only problems ive ran into with the board is the sidewall. after a day of riding i noticed that there was a puncture along the back toeside edge. whether it was from a rail, a skier behind me in the lift line, or bumping boards on the lift (im goofy all my friends are regs) im not sure, but it was repairable so its no fault to bataleon.
as for the proform, i just emailed their USA contact and i got a reply within a week (back in august). They could be cutting back now, but its anyones guess...
