2009 Phantom Upwind footstraps
 
Does the 08/09 Phantom 320 come with upwind footstraps? How many? Hello? Anybody out there??

Brogborough Lake ( http://www.brogboroughlake.co.uk ) got 12 320s today.

All had 2 upwind straps.

Here is a pic although it is not easy to see from this one.

Thanks for feedback!
 
Wow, are those 2008's??

Phill104 23rd July 2008 10:17 PM

Fresh in yesterday. I assume they are 2008s as the 2007 was 301 long and quite a bit different and the 2009 has not been released yet. We had a little play on them in the afternoon and they are great fun. I cannot really comment on their performance as I have very little experience of longboards. However, I really can see the appeal. There was barely any wind yet I still had a good workout and realised I have a lot to learn about longboard racing tactics and skills.

Daggerboard
 
While trying the board, did you find it easy to extend and retract the daggerboard? Does it have a soft knob that is comfortable on the foot when actuating?? Thanks for the previous feedback!

It has a solid plastic handle, not like the soft ones on Starts etc. At the moment they are very stiff but hopefully that will improve with a bit of use. They have probably only had 2hrs use each so far. We have lubricated them with some silicon lube but it has had little effect.

There seems to be mounts for a strap to prevent the dagger from raising too far but it is not supplied with the board. If you raise it too far it hits the mast track peddle usually resulting in a humerous dismount.

Suppose it would be easy to make some straps and install them. Is the humerous dismount caused by the track pedal being depressed and releasing the mast track lock??

Yep.

The slot flushers seem to be loosening up now.
