20” Nimbus X Unicycle ISIS reviews?

Hi folks, I am a juggler looking to upgrade my old crappy uni. This one looks like a nice lower budget stage uni, can anyone tell me their opinions on them, or share recommendations if they know something better in the $250-350 range?

Thanks!
iain

The Nimbus X is a very nice uni and pretty strong.

I have one on my own and play hockey with it (i have the old square taper version)

This unicycle is a really good investment in my opinion. It has machined bearing holders (better for your bearings), ISIS hub and cranks (stronger).

Everything on this is solid. The only thing I really don't like about this uni is the 48 spokes wheelset. Freestyle unicycles don't need 48 spokes, 36 is fine....

48 is very nice in my opinion.

When i had my 36 spoke wheelset i often got balls between the spokes during the game. It never happened to my 48. (Im the goalkeeper)

Well, in freestyle, you don't need to care about balls (well, you've got to care about 2 of them but the others you don't need too).

That's why 48spokes is useless to me.

Good, solid freestyle uni. Only bad thing about it is some unneccessary weight, but that isn't that much. It's pretty good.
