I suspected as much with regards to the 2012 Futura111. Having the wider tail and larger fin as well as other small changes I thought might make it still a good choice for me. My preference was to not have to go to a larger board if possible. Carbon was my choice also.
It sounds like either boards would work well. I guess it just depends if I want to also keep that top end range.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. Cheers!
