I have the iS 76 (and iS94) and to me a 28cm will be too small. I would instead recommend something only slightly smaller than what you have, i.e. 30-32cm, to start with. Keep in mind also that when...

I haven't sailed the Atom iq, but the futura is pretty close to the full on slalom boards (Isonic). I think the Carve series is much easier to sail and should be much better for developing gybing...

There is nothing really "wrong" with the F162, it just needs a powerful fin, it was after all developed in combination with the Deb. R20 fin.

With a Z-fin this board really comes alive, it flies...

You don't need any T-foil to sail on the fin, just ask any Formula sailor...

If you do want a foil then the classical V-shape should do the trick of reducing the lift when the board rides higher.

I don't know what you have sailed before the 167W. But if you compare the positions of the mast track, foot straps, and the fin base on the 167W to e.g. the HWR or 162, you will see that they have...

The 1/3 "rule" only comes from the fact that the sail acts like a wing and these have their pressure center positioned around 1/3 from the leading edge. It is only meant as a quick way to find the...

The two posts by "Unregistered" above are likely from two different people, as "Unregistered" is the generic name for non-members.

I haven't tried the other sails in that list but the Reflex IV sails are very nice. Lots of power and a very smooth camber rotation.

I have now tried the Reflex IV 10.7 with a 530 red-line mast (using a regular base extension) and I think it works quite well, at least in the light winds that we had. My weight is around 70kg and...

They were available a year ago, I really like the 210-260cm one. Works very well with 9.0-10.0 sails.

Just buy second-hand then, the cost of a 2-3 year old board is very low compared to what you get.

You can always test sails on different mast to get a softer or stiffer sail. The Reflex III 10.7 was particularly stiff on a 550 mast, don't know if that has change or not for next year.

The Reflex 3 is/was also rigged on a 550 mast, so I don't think it has changed much.

I wouldn't add any straps until you've sailed the board. It light winds you don't need to be in the rear strap, in fact on the F158 one could sail very well in light winds by having the rear foot on...

The video doesn't show the record run, so I don't think the laydown is at 50 knots, still looks good though.

Why not make it a formula board rather than a race board and finally have a modern design in the OS?

The clew might not move but if you pull the mast towards you, you are also effectively sheeting...

If you didn't sheet out then it may well be the fin lifting the board out of the water. This can happen if the nose is raised too much, the angle of attach of the fin then makes it unstable and it...
