mako king twin tip mode footstrap width-

did you increase the insert width on the board for standard twin tip footstrap mode?

I can’t get stance on new board to feel like old board- feels wider and in more gorilla stance(or am i imagining it)?

What year / graphic was your on your previous king? Once we know this we can let you know if the insert locations have been tweaked.

I had some unused foot straps from my 2007 OR Mako Classic so I put those on my 2011 Mako King. That is what I would recommend if you are going ride twin tip, get some dedicated straps without footpads.

does nothing for me - bad ankle and two crappy knees- i want footpads for more padding.  Besides same width issue

to add- previous board was 2010 Mako King and new one is 2013 Mako King
I loved the insert width on the 2010 mako king- my issue is w/ new board and if specs changed.  also wish hadn’t mandated deck pad

Ocean Rodeo anybody home?

Richard are you swimming to the china factory to find out if insert width has changed?

OR13,

You are right that the 2010 is a bit different than the 2013. We found for the vast majority of riders the new 2013 insert pattern provided the best overall setup and options - I won’t bore you with all the details as I quickly get them muddled up!

Short answer is that there are a few less inserts on the newer model and in a slightly different pattern.

There are a few folks like yourself who are less stoked on the deckpad over the regular footpads. However the majority are keener on the mutant setting as opposed to pads. Also, not including pads helps us keep the cost of the boards more affordable for everyone.

Hope that helps!

Spoken like a Brit from Southern England I know. I think that he would tend to agree with you. If you could put your words in rhyme then I would say that you are that British gent.

I think it would be fair to ask what the difference in stance is in centimeters between the new board and the previous board in twintip mode.
