Default RE: I sonic 145 VS F-Type 138

Is the Bic superblast not that good I can't really tell.

Bic is very small in Netherlands with no test oppurtunities. Thank you Duracell for respond. We are still looking for a board.

But understand me good the requirements my brother wants

(and every freeracer/rider I think)

1) Easy/ comftable stance
2) Easy tuning
3) Wide wind range
4) Good in sub planning (HERE DO SHORT BOARDS FAIL)
5) crosswind speed

These thing are less important
- Gybing speed
- Upwind speed
- Downwind speed
- Acceleration
- Good @ windholes

The short board concept is good and works very well for me! But I had now 10 people that sailed the isonic and dont liked it because of it short lenght and understability in sub planning. The isonics are good selling, but in the local shops I see a lot used Isonics against the walls...

For me (pure racer/speeder) the requirements are all around. I just want upwind/downwind speed. Fast planning High topspeed etc.

THIS is the difference I think, And why WE (after 5 years SB) wont buy a SB back.

Boardoptions we where thinking:

JP Freerace 145 2005
JP xciteride 14* 2007
SB Freeformula 168 2004
Bic blast
Bic superblast
Fanatic Shark
some others???

BTW my brother doesnt like the carve, it just will not work??? He wants easy speed (with NP V8). He found the carve a strange/slow ride.

If there are some good suggestions, dont keep it for yourself.
