Now I am on a Vader 4'10" and it is way faster turning and more fun. Still planes up almost the same with the right techniqu...

Re: Supplements/food to prevent knee/hip arthritis and keep joints lubricated?

It might work better in the mid-upper range as the bar might be slightly closer to your body to give you a better stance to possibily hand...
