Seems like they actually did it.

Compared the my '07 C133 I really enjoyed the ride on the FU133, planed earlier, faster and still had quite a bit of balance
Compared to my '06 ST137 I again really enjoyed the ride on the FU133, planed earlier, faster and had much more balance (especially when tacking)

So for me the FU133 easily replaces the ST137 and the C133 (<- a board I honestly hated).
Of course a part of the early planing is due to the somewhat larger outline, but the ride was nicer compared to the C133 (more like riding a log) and ST137 (very very nice but at times somewhat unbalanced).

Hi!

In the german Surf Magazine the test report says:

"... The board turns amazingly well and belongs to the?? best narrow turning boards but narrow will lose speed. ..."

Does it lose speed only in narrow turns?
Is it very different to the C133 in jibes? better/worse?
