Hello I need to upgrade my formula board. Today I sail a F2 FXIII that I want to upgrade.

My question is. I can get for a very affordable price a Formula 160 Year 2006 in very good condition, no repairs. Or to buy a new FE160.

I weigth near 90 kilos and my sail is a Severne Code Red 11 mts.

What do you think ? is the same board?
I will not compete but I want to rece against my buddies all them in Formula equipments F160, F161, F162, F2 FX V etc.....

Thanks,
Michel

Go for the FW 160 2006.... it's lighter... so faster
You'll have more durability with the FE160

Then the design is the same?...... only a weight and constrcton materials difference?

Another question: How Tufskin compares to the old Dram construction???

Thanks,
