mcross19 Eric, I can understand where are coming from, ever since I owned this board I have always been amazed at its light wind performance. It is hard to imagine how they could improve on it but apparently they have!

Ericred0 If i hadnt bought this board due to lack of wind so far this year i would only of sailed a handful of times. In the past i would be waiting for force 4 plus to have a good windsurf but now im finding im having as much fun early planing in light winds as being powered up on smaller boards in good winds, its opened up a whole new side of windsurfing for me. Anyone else feel the same?

Ericred0 Hi Crash
I was more or less forced to use a Lessacker weed fin as this was the only maker of a weed fin big enough to allow me to carry my 9.6 on my Ultrasonic, one of the things i found with this fin is when overpowered is it really calms the board down making it sail flat and controlled which might interest you because you said you were enjoying a wide wind range. I'm sure the Lessacker fins made for none weed conditions must be better again and able to improve your range.

Ultrasonic 10m to 6.5m

Just a mention I usually sail a formula board but going to Spain I could only carry one board.
I choose the Starboard Ultrasonic for its huge sail and wind range.
My 10 meter sail is a Neil Pryde RS slalom with the mastfoot at the back the board really flys.
I weigh 70 kilos and use a easy uphaul but find Im hardly ever needing it on a wide board.
With smaller sails down to 6.5M getting the set up right is critical mast foot forward and using the right fin is the key but hey Im still learning!

Ericred0 Thanks for the advice Roger my Lessacker duo formula 36cm weed fin arrived yesterday, it looks a work of art. Tried it today on our lovely weed infested lake in perfect Ultrasonic conditions, it feels similar to the original Drake fin but shows no effect of the weed. Used my 9.6 with loose outhaul and no sign of any spin out and planes very easily.
Thanks Roger

Roger ericred0,
See if you can find one of the Lessacher Formula Duo Weed fins. You can sail larger sails, very full
without the fin "letting go".
The Formula Duo is only 40 cm deep, but the asymmetrical foil design gets rid of the weeds a lot better
and you almost cannot get one of these to "let go".

BelSkorpio Luckily I didn't have to use a weed fin yet on my US147.

But also with us, a lot of big lakes close to the sea are getting more and more infested by weed.
Some say that it is due to heavy fertilization of farmers on the lands closeby.
Don't know if it's true.
