As far as I know, the ghost has less power than rs7. But the ghost also got more flex (or taillift)

I would prefer the rs7, but if you are in heavier conditions a ghost could add a bit control.

Speedwise, the rs7 is faster.

Can't help you more, I have to less experience with big stuff.

It seem's in the test that Ghost has better performances in all conditions...

It is hard to compare, since not all slalomboards/ racesails have same needs.

Underneath isonic the ghost could work well, even better in some conditions.
Underneath a fanatic falcon I would definitly go for rs7.

You are wright, 2008 Falcon's needs stiffer fin's than all other boards...

Papounet, you are kind of right. But in high wind I would prefer a bit less flex in the fin. So a right sized S07 would be far superior to the Select Ghost in real world conditions.

What do you think?

Only in real lightwind or underpowered flat conditions I believe the Ghost has an advantage theoretical. I would like to know what you think, since I haven't sailed the Ghost.
