What's interesting about RIB-X is the allegedly indeterminate origin of their product. If the RIB International review is accurate, then you may not know exactly where your boat is coming from!
OK I've been very harsh on this brand, and I've based much of this on secondhand reports, but if you're a prospective buyer then any subsequent resale of your RIB will be subject to the same questions asked by potential purchasers.
However, I'm still sceptical about the use of alternative materials and products which appear to be based on price and not function.
