Can you tell us more about the factory location? I bet it’s a snowboard factory in Austria
I'm pretty sure it's located in Poland in Bielsko-Biala city, where Nobile HQ is.
Big thank you to you all for sharing your opinions.
Ok, after corresponding with local shops and asking about Shinn boards and NHP the best price/availability I can get is for Monk '13 and is exactly the same as for NHP '13.
I am tilting towards 132x41 Monk - this size is recommended for 75-85 kg by Shinn and I think that a more nimble board is what I would love to have for my modest freestyle attempts
I'm a little bit worried because I got impression from you that Monk is way more freeride-oriented than I thought and too flexy and I'm worried that this will not help my freestyle "ambitions"
Because like I said I'm not able to test these boards, pretty please provide final feedback for these last questions and I will go far far away
1. Is it true that Monk has WAY BETTER POP and is significant better for freestyle than T5. True? False? The same?
2. (I know that I got single answer, but want more voices): how Monk is suitable for freestyle compared to NHP? NHP is way-way better? The same? Should I stop worrying about it because it is marginal and you guys are using Monk for FS without problems and are satisfied?
Thank you so much once again
