The new Nobile IFS Pro footbed system has been out there for a couple of weeks now, has any one tried them?

I haven´t try them but ...... anything is better compared to the stock pads ( owner of a Shinn twin) , love the board , hate so much the pads since they offer Imo 0 heel support , found a way to modify them with some old beach sandals , cutting and gluing them in between the layers of the pad on the back side since I don´t see why I must spend another 50 bucks for halfway decent pads after spending 700 euros for that board . ( No I had no idea that time that I was able to upgrade to the IFS pads )

It turned out to be that 3 out of 4 Nobile boards owners I know did not even bother installing the stock pads onto their boards .

I would order the IFS straight ahead .

Have no idea if Nobile knows that 8 out of 10 people hate their pads .

Did I mention that I really like the f**** board ? performance wise......

Saludos

Panchito...
Yes I know you don't like the IFS system, in no small part by the fact that you posted it 50 times already!!!!!!!
If only product development was as fast as posting on a forum!

The IFS PRO is out there, I suggest you try it?

As regards the IFS, 8 out of 10 is simply not true, if every Nobile owner in the last 2 years that had a set of IFS and did not like them posted on this forum I would say you could have a point, but they don't. I have plenty of feedback that some rider still prefer to have a thinner pad and more direct contact with the board.

Every one has an opinion and a personal preference...... a forum is to express your own, not tell everyone else what theirs should be.....

IMHO of course
