Thanks for the comparison. I haven't tried the Ripstick but looking at the Oports and specs I am surprised to learn that it has a lower launch angle and is less spin-friendly vs. the Textreme Tour 310. Would you happen to know why that is the case?I wrote the following in another thread about my experience with Ripstick which I am attempting to switch too as well
"Ripstick is definitely not "straight up spin". More power and comfort than TXT line but with a much lower launch angle and less spin friendly than either the tour 310, 100X to name a few. For a 300g stick I have not found one with better plow through and the ports are clearly there to improve the maneuverability given its rather higher swing weight and its certainly the most tight 16x18 pattern I have ever seen. The best analogy I can use it is like the older Aeropro drive cortex but ported, also lower launch and amazing plow for a lighter stick"
TW just released their written review finally. I think Jason is way way off . Launch angle is low not anything close to high. Eric nails the review and he compared it to the pure aero at the end while I feel it is closer to the APDC
