you funny . . . would never sell my 159.

Would consider selling the 174 (maybe but probably not) as i often will choose one of my other boards (which have some volume) over it.

Interesting as I got my 174 from Ireland. Not easy boards to track down.

Hey Dude still on the road and tell something about Spleene...

The Nobile board is different to the Spleene board. I have tested it for a very long time. It has less flex and so there is no rocker in the tail which is OK for early planning, but in waves you cannot play with it. It is a good board, but is definitely not the same.

Ciao

Or Rainer, I'll happily test any prototype boards you might have!

Great board that I really miss riding

Sorry?
this has nothing to do with Spleene,
I said to my opinion..the Nobile is a better board, everyone has his choise, otherwise there would be no place for others right?, and as if the old zones were/are not available anymore the Nobile is an alternative compared to the zone....never claimed it was exactly the same shape.. but the same way of TTlike manufacturing...( if you want to have the points on the i), anything wrong about that?

Hey NaishDude . . . my friend has the 5'4" nobile infinity. It is a very nice board, well built with some flex and foam rails on the deck that simulate volume and thickness. The board has rocker through-out (not sure which size nobile board Rainer looked at).

It is an easy gentle board to ride, both heel-side and toe-side and also easy to gybe if you want. The small zone however feels more alive when riding it and it would have almost no rocker in the tail but the tail has heaps of flex and can carve the hardest turns. I love using it but I think the 5'4" Nobile would be better for riding waves than the159. (5'3" ish)

The 174 is a different story but then it should be compared to the 5'7" nobile that i have never seen.
