i think i agree with the magazine report, although a large weight difference may make a difference i dont think the sort of weight differences that different constructions of one board offer. If i were given a choice between a more expensive, lighter and more fragile board or a cheaper, slightly heavier and more durable board i'd take the cheaper one everytime. It is true what they said in the article that no one has really tested the big claims of earlier planning and greater top end for ltd constructions before so i'm happy that they did it and made the normally windsurfer like me feel a bit better with the cheaper stuff. Much of windsurfing is the rider's skill, the board is just a tool, it doesnt sail for you.
