Guys, I think you all need to settle down a little. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a 162. We have raced them since before Christmas in Australia, and can definetly say it is quicker then the 161.
At times the Vapor was quicker , other times the 162 was quicker. Race results were determined by the better racer, not the board.
Two boat testing has proven that either board can be quick, it's just a matter of finding the ideal setup for you.
