it's always an adjustment changing boards if they're not form the same brand: different designers, different testers. When i switch from mistral to startboard i always have to readjust to the slightly more technical aspect of starboard, wheras mistral allows me to make mistakes, starboards responds to a malplaced foot relatively fast. Also, tried placing the mast foot fully forward?
