<a href="http://www.centurionofkingsport.com/about_us.html" target="_blank">http://www.centurionofkingsport.com/about_us.html</a> <BR> <BR>More boards &amp; bindings here

magellan 09-27-2006 6:30 PM

Is it just me...or does it all look really gay. <BR>The one board and boots are tight...but wow..

dekay 09-27-2006 9:56 PM

The Vault and Covin are sick too, I don't know about the Scout and Frontier though.

ldebbold 09-28-2006 11:59 AM

What I find strange is that the Ronix 07 product just appeared in the Boards section of WW and there is virtually no real information about the product, just more hype like we've been hearing for months. How about some dimensions, weight, rocker, fin angle, ride characteristics, materials, etc.. All I'm left with is looking at the shape and bottom configuration and trying to decide which Hyperlite or Obrien board it most resembles.

t_magnum 09-28-2006 6:04 PM

is anyone sold on the snowboard boot for the water yet?

magellan 09-28-2006 6:25 PM

Not me. <BR>I see no need as wake is in the sun/summer/hot..more of a surf vibe. Full on snowboard boot style is there for snow because it is cold and you are walking on ice and snow. <BR>Plus, I used to work in a wake shop. Seems like 90% of wakeboarders are the package, cheap, easy buyers. The $400 boot sale is very few and far between. These forums are packed with the upper .2% of riders. Not skill level by any stretch...I mean wake knowledge.

the closed toed is sopesed to be alot better on the toeside edjeing and now the heated liners they will be so comfortible i cant wait i already ordered the one board and binding setup

magellan 09-28-2006 6:42 PM

Exactly my point. <BR>If there is an edging benefit to closed toe, it is your heel edge. Awesome that you dropped cash on an unproven board and boots, and don't even know which edge closed toe is "supposedly" going to help. <BR>If it makes youor edge better, shouldn't all of their boots have it? <BR> <BR>Sorry stephen, I know you are excited.. good luck with it.

deltawakerider 09-28-2006 6:54 PM

i love not haveing a pressure point the old style open toe boots would have(where the toe rubber stops and digs into the top of your foot)...i will never ride an open toe old school boot again...oh yea and fba

deltawakerider 09-28-2006 6:55 PM

stephen...dont let the (old)man get you down...your gonna have a blast on your new setup!

gotwake123 09-28-2006 8:39 PM

ha im an am so im not paying for it

iamnathanhudson 09-29-2006 9:14 AM

yeah he just thinks everything is gay because he can't keep up times.....nothing is "GettingOlder" than Magellan's useless comments. Everything new seems gay to him!

innov8 09-29-2006 9:28 AM

Just a question, but if the closed toe bindings are so much better, then why does Ronix offer 4 closed toe and 4 open toe in there binding lineup and not all 8 in a closed toe binding?

bill 09-29-2006 9:31 AM

Jeff <BR> <BR>Because offering all of one and none of the other is not being flexible enough and giving the consumer more choices.. <BR> <BR>Its too early to go all closed toe as it will take time for it to fully catch on and some riders who dont like change need a choice as well ;)

gdillyfunk69 09-29-2006 9:36 AM

magellan <BR> <BR>.... every post about anything to do with Ronix you try and put Ronix down... u need to get a life... you have never ridden any of these boards or bindings but all you can do is say negative things about them... you really are a LOOSER if that is how you spend your time... dissing another companies products that seperated away from "the norm" for all the right reasons. Get a life and go to wakeboarder.com if your guna continue your useless arrogence.

jolly_roger_wake 09-29-2006 9:41 AM

its arrogance. if you're going to insult the guy, at least do it right.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

byrd 09-29-2006 10:48 AM

Although I see your point Chris, My take on what he(magellan) said was that its all hype and no real life experience, yet. He could have done it in a nicer way.... <BR> <BR>Dont worry peeps, we'll have all winter to get the details on the whole product line.

ldebbold 09-29-2006 10:57 AM

Troy, <BR> <BR>Exactly my point. No information, just nice photos. I've got nothing against Ronix and am excited to read the reviews as they come in, but with this many months of anticipation I want the board stats, weight, ride characteristics, etc.. so I can compare that with all the info. already available from the competitor's gear.

gdillyfunk69 09-29-2006 12:04 PM

Lance... ive seen people spell words a lot worse than that... so ill mark that down as I was running out of time and typing very fast! lol <BR> <BR>Byrd... I am not talking about just this post... look at a few posts taht have any thing to do with Ronix... and he has some stupid comment to make putting them down... seems pretty dumb to put down something you have never even held in your hands... just my 2 cents <BR> <BR>For example in another post: <BR> <BR>GettingOlder (magellan) <BR> <BR>Wait...it's impossible. A RONIX board broke. I thought they were the best ever. They have to be...Parks rides for them..and Danny..wha..Chad..whio...1080.. <BR>AAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

stephan 09-29-2006 12:13 PM

The really funny one is that you call him a "LOOSER" in all caps. What is he looser than? I'm not sticking up for him, he may indeed be a loser. I don't know. I just hope everyone out there tries before they buy.

jovedawake 09-30-2006 11:40 AM

Chris, <BR> <BR>Who cares if people like Ronix or not. If they want to call it gay, let them. <BR> <BR>If Ronix is as good as we all hope it is, then all (most) the negative comments will be shut up very quickly. <BR> <BR>Let them hate, more for me to love (I hope). <BR> <BR>Charlie
