I picked up a 2009 Ronix Mana 134 and matched it up with some Kai closed toe bindings. I got a killer deal from evogear and I tried the board out for the first time today.
I am coming from a 2008 CWB Pure 134 with Vapor bindings and the difference between the two is significant!
I was having trouble with my w2w landings and now they are effortless with the new board. I even landed my first w2w 180 today so it's already making a massive difference in my riding.
The molded-in fins are a little big so I am guessing that is what is making my landings more solid. There is absolutely no need for the optional center fins. I am having a hard time breaking the fins loose with a surface 180 when compared to my really loose CWB Pure. It's going to take more effort to use proper technique to break the fins loose before I am 100% satisfied with the board.
Post up your experience with this board if you own it. I would love to hear some feedback!
