Forgot to share this lineup. Got invited to swing by the Korua JP demo center on this last Japow trip. Wish we had enough time to try more than just the TF+ & Pencil, but it was enough to bring us back on board the Korua hype train. They’re vastly improved over the first year product.

Agreed, if they made a TF 54+ I’d buy it right away.

 

Wish the Escalator Split came in the TF 57 size.... 

 

 But I still may get the 59

Well shit, this whole time I was thinking I wanted a TF+ 54. Guess that’s out. 

I really liked the feel of the Plus. It’s light, reminiscent of the mothership-made Niche Pyre & DC HR I had. Except those felt...not sure how to describe it...not flimsy but...hollow? TF+ actually a better longitudinal flex, still torsionally stiff, but with some snap or rebound to it.

Yep, totally agree. Feel the same about my TF+ 57. Has the energy/snap that I felt the reg line needed more of.

TF+ in a 54 would be choice.  I rode a friend's 57 and didn't dislike it but couldn't help thinking the 54 would be more fun.  The 57 rode bigger than a 57 imo

haven't ridden a + but I am more intrigued with what you guys are saying.  The regular TF I rode felt really dense.
