I can easily believe the phantom 320 beats other hybrids in non planning conditions, mainly due to it's narrower width. Actually it looks more a junior raceboard, and nothing wrong with that. But I can't see it going as well upwind on the fin the way the 80cm hybrids do. To me that defines a true hybrid, I can get the fun of railing in the lulls and fly the fin formula style in the gusts. Often even if I had both types of boards (major hassle that would be) the variable wind would make it hard to call which to use. With a hybrid I can switch in seconds. Ok it's not as fast in either case , but it has a similar feel to both - in one package. Now we just need some high modulus carbon technology to get them do to 11/12 kgs....
