Hello Sean,

Do you know which mast were the NP guys using? The latest X100 or the previous generation X9 Ultras?

There are concerns about the performance of the X100 mast over here in Spain,...

I think that the 167/167 wide needs some time in races to see its real performance. It has just been released and it still cannot be 'officially' used in regattas until next year.

The current HWR...

Definitely the HWR, much better angle upwind. I weigh less than you, about 76 Kg, and I ended up selling my LWR. It is fast and easy, but the HWR is much more competitive.

90 cm tail? Nearly 10 cm more than the HWR!

Being both models "Ideal for medium riders", which one should I choose for my 77 Kg? Will the 167 wide be a bit of a handful in medium-stronger winds?...

Lightwind fin for LWR

Hello,

I have been using the LWR with a Kashy 70 XS (179 cm, 77 Kg) and althought it is a fast setup, I think that the LWR lacks some of the upwind "grunt" of the other Formula Starboards. Has...

Jesper Vestrerstrom put some useful tuning tips for the 162 but I am unable to locate now his post. Perhaps it was removed for some reason?
