Glad to join the forum, lurked for a while but for my first post wanted to get some learned feedback on the vaunted Magic Model shape. You know the ones. I'm pretty much down to Mitsven or Mabile. I surf all over San Diego so need a versatile stick, something in the 8'6"-9'0" range, good paddle power, that can cruise on smaller junky days but also be my trusted go-to in winter time when it gets overhead. For those who have ridden/owned one or both, what do you think? Any major differences between the two? Outline seems pretty similar, if anything maybe Bob's tend to "pop" more from an aesthetic point of view, while Larmo's are simpler and more muted tints and glosses. Maybe just a difference in the lams and glassing. Are they really as versatile as advertised? Let me hear where you surf yours and how you like 'em, longer, shorter, rockers, rails, fin setups and everything else!
