I agree Geo, but I like Phill just think its a to time consuming task. Some "cross comparison" is reasonable though.
Many mags today try to provide some kind of idea of _why_ the board in question work like it does. In this "analysis" I think discussions about the provided fin should have a more prominent role.
In a category like FSW/crossover it is remarkable that the VERY different fin choices does not get more attention in the tests write ups.
