Both techno and phantom would be better for performance than any of the other beginer boards you mentioned earlier.
Thanks Tony.Since I have no experience in such boards do they perform in the lower end too??Most (including Roger) suggest I should go with a wide slalom board which I don't like as once I get onto plane it feels like a very large board.I prefer narrower boards.Would the phantom 295 plane early? Reading the specs I prefer the 295 over the 320.
