2012 Naish momentum

Postby BillyGoatGruff » Mon Feb 04, 2013 10:01 pm

Looking at a 134cm naish momentum 2012...I can't really find much info on this board..

- The board feels heavy and is quite thick, is it good low end (earlyplanning/ light wind) and fast through the water ? (82kg rider).

- How is it is choppy conditions ?
- Looking for a fast board that is excellent up wind and in chop
- the ally bindings look solid but very hard ? a problem or not ?
- How is the flex ?

thanks

Ally isnot very hard. I have spent too little time on the 2012 momentum but loved the 2011. Good low end and more flexy than the moneyshot.

I ended up choosing the moneyshot.

yep , have the 2012 134 momentum, great in chop very smooth and carves nice, the ally bindings are the best naish bindings ive ever used, they fit well and are comfortable. its slower than my old thorn but still goes well and upwind is good too, have not noticed any issues.

Dont really notice the weight, but it is a solid board. took me a while to get my pop sorted after being used to a thorn where i used the tail to spring off a bit.
after 6 months of use i think i am more up for something a little more similar to the thorn so am looking at the new dub which looks sweet. heard great things about the money shot but have never ridden one.
overall pleased i got it and its a great chop board, where you can chuck some great carves and new school tricks too.
cheers
