mcross19 The differences are small yes, but enough to make the SB more desirable.

The damage done was by courier this time but last time it was the factory at fault.

Unregistered, ask yourself the question why older JP SLW are cheaper and greater stock?

Unregistered Belskorpio & mcross19:

If that are the main differences between SB US and JP SLW
then i do not understand why someone would change one for the other !!
both are winners in my book
the issue with SB seems delivery on time and in one piece are not guaranteed - depending where u are
for me JP SLW is at the local dealer and can be checked and walked out with ...
older models of JP are found cheapeer

BelSkorpio The JP SLW starts planing a tidy bit earlier and behaves more like a mini formula. It points higher but will also start pulling at your ankles (a bit like formula) when overpowered.

If you 're looking for more speed and maneuvrability, say the slalom feeling, then the US147 is the board to choose. With the US147, you will not quickly be overpowered.

Unregistered in which aspects is the US 147 better than the two(2) JP SLWs ??
speed perhaps, and ??

BelSkorpio That's really tough luck, mcross19.
Just a week ago, in my country there was a US147/2012/Carbon 2nd hand sold for only 1000 euro.
It was hardly used and in perfect condition. I know the guy who sold it. He's into catamaran sailing now with light wind, so he doesn't need the board any more. But like we say in our language "Figs after Easter".

The only thing I can add, the US147 remains a damn good board.

mcross19 Most people I know in the UK are swapping their JP SLW for the SB US147! Says it all really.

Unregistered personally feel you should return the board and go for a JP SLW !!!
i was considering a SB US, butt not any more $%^&*()

one of the CAPTCHA words was "Honour" = irony

mcross19 Well the board came in (only one week short of 4 months!) only to have been damged by the courier, UNBELEIVABLE!

Unregistered issues of distributorship
look up the distributors of SB and then go to their websites
half of them NO longer distribute SB
as consumers in this day and age - we are ready to order from the company itself
we know what we want and are ready to pay shipping and duty
the companies like SB and MS might consider such an option
in a case like SB , they are large enough to handle the extra load !!!!

BelSkorpio On the forum of MauiSails you can read about some French guys who were waiting 6 months for their newly ordered TR-9's. Sad.
I think that there were some payment issues between the surfshop and the distributor or between distributor and MS. It's in most cases a similar problem and it can happen with any brand. Nobody delivers if they are not payed. As simple as that.
