Thanks Ken the Apollo is just fine in lighter winds a lot of the issues with it are the fin choice, get it right and its a very smooth ride and requires very little effort to get it going just jump into the straps and bear downwind and it takes off. I do have a F type 148 but it doesn't handle the chop anywhere near as well as the Apollo and requires far more effort to get it going. I think you have made the decision for me the 160, I love the idea of blasting at 28 Knots and maybe still being in control. Im 60 by the way and have only been windsurfing for just over 2 years but try to get as much TOW as possible, so much to learn, a fantastic sport.
Anyone got a 160 For Sale?
