Finn Drops anyone?

With risk of sliding on the subject of the thread somewhat: Has anyone here any experience of the formula board that Drops registered this season?

It wasn't on the world championships and I can't find any tests yet. I can get a fair price from my local dealer but is really interested in more input before closing the deal.

Formula rule sail max 12.5 m2, so don't think 13m2 is happening,
but sails are getting lighter and more powerfull latelly. All top guys are using max sail
sizes, not just AA, he's just the best at the moment.

BelSkorpio Hi Papounet,

I'm curious, what's the largest sail size that AA was using in Argentina. Do you know ?

Papounet A² makes the différence...

Remenber that he won his first title with an Olllllllld AHD

He can take bigger sails than all other racers ( 3 years old RSR for instance )

Unregistered Everyone seems to be focused on the boards. Over the years, AA has changed from AHD to Starboard and now JP but he did not change his sail sponsor. Could it be the sail that made the difference or maybe it is just AA and nothing else? I'm not a great fan of NP sail in fact I'm boycotting this brand because they have (had) some serious quality issues with their masts and also for the fact that its rich and powerful boss was able to manipulate the selection of the Olympic board (so i heard). Hence, I'll say it's not the board but AA himself who made the difference. The rest is just marketing.

Unregistered Yep. Same shaper - Patrik Diethelm but definetly not the same boards as last years F2.
