RE: 161

Hi guys,
I'm finally trading in my trusty 158 for a newer model

1) Any more views on the 161 vs 160?

2) discussion threads suggest that this board excels in the light. Is the 161 easy to control in high wind? I have visions of this being like the Fanatic T2 i used to have which was a nightmare in strong winds.

3) Are we still set on just 2 fins:
a)70R19S+8 upto 15knots and
b)70R13m+8 for more wind?

4) Has 161 been raced in any competitions yet? if so, how did it do compared to 160, 159 and new F2 etc?

Hi Expander,

If I am not wrong the F2 prefer more angle, but the new F 161 is really extremely easy in strong wind, so no problem with the + 8cm rake angle.

All the best

Thank you, Remi, for your very reliable suggestions.

Hi Remi,

for us, normal racers, don't you think is a big issue for legs to keep board working with +8 rake fins in strong wind ?

I come from F2 and I really would like to switch to Starboard: is 161 more comfortable in windy condition, even with forwarded fins like +8 R13?

And what do you expect in terms of pointing angle with same fin but at +6 rake, instead?

Many thanks.

Hi Raffig,

Yes a Custom fin from Deboichet who is a lot more expensive compare to the Stock fin is really better. It's depend of the material you use to make the fin. But for a stock fin the Drake is pretty good and work propely under 15 knots.

All the best

RE: 161

Hello Remi,
I am a bit confused now... In the second post you replied that "If you woild like to increase your performances in light wind again, go for the Deboichet Custom R19", so is this different than the stock fin?

My question is: Is the stock fin competitive for winds up to 15 knots or is it necessary to order another one?

Thanks for your input.

Hi Raffing,

The stock fin is a copy of the Deboichet R 19 soft -- rake + 8cm.

All the best

RE: 161

Sorry, but what are the specifications of the stock fin which comes with the 161?
