Hi All

As I say this board feel smaller than it is and we make all our test with the normal Virus 70 and get already a very nice lift even in light winds. Of course we test a lot of other best fins on the market. And find that the 70 standard for Z Fins and Virus was the best reason why you have the sticker on the board to help customers to get the right set up. Now each rider can up grade the performances of this boards and this is very personnal stuff who can work with one but not the other.
Hope this help
A the best

Hi Remi,

I ordered a Formula 167 Wide. Hopefully it will be in Amsterdam end of Octobre. I have an F162 now so, I am curious about the differences.

Question about the fin: what vin do you recommend voor a 96kg, 1.96m sailor like me? I sail formula competition in the Netherlands. I contacted Z-fins and they said I should wait till 2012 as they are developing a new formula fin.

Do you have the email or something to contact Virus as I cannot find them on the internet?

I know its personal thing, but as a starting point...

Best regards & thank you very much!

Pieter

I would not order a fin until the board has been shipped to the Virus and Z fin riders to test new fins for the board.

Sorry Remi , for my friend Alberto that is 71 kg ,exspert rider , in 8 20 kt, wich is the best board : 167 or 167 wide ?
He said that 90 of tail is to big!!!!!!!! to go fast in downwind and for medium wind (12 -18 kn)????.

Thanks

Hi Psycowind

This board change all the perception compare to what you have on the market. The board really feel smaller down wind due to her very big cut aways.
Anyway the problem for light rider is for reach who can became difficult but not up wind ans down wind.
In general I recommend the 167 for ligth riders but if in your country the wind is very light the 167 Wide can be the one.
All the best

Greg:
Reaching in any formula board is tough. They are not design for reaching. They are design for downwind and upwind racing. The wide has the widest tail ever in a formula board at 90cm.
