Over Priced, Gimmicky. educate me.
I have last years SHAKA. I cant say that I wouldn't buy them again because my son wants a pair. My gripe with them is that the split base plate and living hing disk add more "flex". Maybe. However the edges of the binding were actually digging into the top sheet leaving dents where the binding was attached. I would assume thats where the "flexing" stopped. I wonder if that has been remedied or its the norm and not a big deal. I'm happy, but i wonder if should save some dollar and get the contacts for my boy.
