Hi RWW,
You wont be alone, I'll be sailing a Phantom 295L on the lake this year with 8.5 Phantom rig as well. Just fun not racing.

Hi Ulf

That's great. I too am looking more for fun in lighter winds than going racing. Haven't settled on a 295 yet. 320 is on the list as well.

I had a 320 and now have a 295, and I am currently purchasing the new 295 L

these boards are the best windsurfing purchases I ever made, though I have everything, iSonic, Futura, Kode etc, it's just that I sail 10x more often, always with pleasure, and can now enjoy light and medium winds

you won't be disappointed

Thanks ZedZdeb

That's exactly my aim. A couple of questions if you don't mind.

What do you weigh? Are you switching to the 295L because of the increased volume?

hi,

the main advantage of the 320 was the possibility to use a 9.5 sail (you may see my videos on youtube by searching "f388949") but such large sails are for me a little bit too large, they are manageable but I prefer the lighter feeling and manoeuvrability of a 7.8, therefore with my 73 kilos, the 295 is just fine, really pleasant, I think the 295 L will be even better though by light and medium wind

all the best

Thanks... That's what I've been thinking. My biggest sail at the moment is a 7.8 that I use with my iS 107 in light to medium winds.

It's good SB is still working on hybrids. Clearly it's not an easy compromise to design, witness the number of SB models, nor cureently the biggest market sector. Nevertheless having a board covering 7/8 knots to 20+ knots and coping with inland conditions is a great goal for the sport. Will be interested to see how it sails compared to my Pacer.

Have ordered, and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new 295L!! Took your advice Remi and asked my shop to order me a full package with a sail as well. Unfortunately, they are unavailable at the moment so am going to have to use my slalom sail or consider other alternatives. Any suggestions? l'm thinking of either a Severne Turbo or Raceboard sail.

Thanks
Russell
