Sold a Mamba to get a super hero. I thought the mamba was OK but really like the super hero better. The Jackson outfitting and fit are better to me. I had one of the plastic buckles in the back band of the mamba snap in a little hole ride and it's really hard to roll with no back band support. Try both for yourself everyone is different. The SuperHero isnt as slow as everyone says althought the mamba is probably a little faster but I felt the SH carves way better. Also you can surf the SH way better than a mamba. They both handle the big water well and I don't think you would go wrong with either but I felt the Jackson plastic was better.

Normal is a setting on your washing machine!

Normal is not the same as average. It is completely normal for conditions (temperature, water level, you-name-it) to be far above or below average from time to time. Please share that with your local weather forecaster!

Don't confuse normal with average, or your shirts will come out faded.

I sold a Mamba and bought a sidekick (really little hero). The mamba was way stable, but I didn't feel like I was in control. I was more like a passenger. It was the smallest one, but I think it was still too big. I feel like I have more control of the hero and it's a lot more comortable for me. You should try them both. You never can tell what you will like.
