Hi, to add on to the thread starter's question, what are the differences between the 161 and 162?

Is there much performance gain between the 2 in lightwind (8-12 knots)/stronger winds (12-15 knots)

Hi SIN 0,

This 2 board are the same but the FOD have an extra paint so is heavier by 300 grames.

This have no affect on the performances.

The FOD is One Design so the Fin have to be the one design one made by Deboichet Custom so better than the production Drake one who is deliver with the 162.

All the best
