Were there any changes to the 2009 Futura 122-133L from the 2008 version?

Yo Crash,

I would say YES. I had the F133 2008 which I exchanged late 2008 for the 2009 version. Background was that I bought the 2008 version however found out it had a little bump, than I sailed that one untill the retailer got the 2009 version which I than could swap for the 08. So I can really tell there is a difference, the 09 version is more stable and topspeed is really better. I tested it on the same lake, with the same windspeed and the same sail and the same fin, so I think those are really comparable conditions. Why do you want to know, are you thinking of buying the 08 version for a discount?

Cheers,
Alwin

Hey Alwin

Can you feel improvement to "foot comfort"? (footstrap positioning and deck dome/radius)

Hi Screamer,

Yes slightly, however it still feels a bit odd the backfoot position, feels a bit unnatural, but maybe its my wooden leg :-) Thanks for the V6 advice few weeks ago, I bought that one.

Cheers,
Alwin

i've been told that it depends on the size. The smaller 101 for example is not a big change, for bigger sizes there might be more difference
