Already impressed buy the wind range and control of the current model, hard to think it can be improved.

Remi, when will details be released and it available to order?

Morning people, got to try the carbon ready to race drake 58 out at the weekend with my 9.5m Overdrive and I must say I was more than a little disappointed by it. Yes it got the board planning early and felt nice and grippy but as soon as small gusts hit it had the board railing up and also had a very draggy feel to it, not slippery like my F-Hot fins (or the G10 R2R fins)

Before anyone says that it is my sailing technique that I need to work on I would disagree, I have the straps outboard, I am nearly 90kg and I sail with a straight from leg curling my toes so there is nothing more I could do.

My next route is a Techart carbon 56cm 'soft less' RSL06 which is on order, this will be for my 8.6 on the US147 if it works well then I will order other sizes, will let you all know my findings.

Hi,

After 2 years using this board, I'm very enjoyed to have bought an ultrasonic!
I've tested some fins and some sails and conclude that 2 sails and 2 fins are suffisant for this board.

For very light wind condition, my sail is an old overdrive 10m2 and my fin is a Z58.
Very early planning, the board lift very early on any pumping. I'm very satisfied with this fin for light wind condition.
For medium wind condition and non stable wind ( not suffisant for my slalom board) , my sail is a gaastra GTX 8m2 and my fin is deboichet r16 52. I'm fully satisfied too for this fin. This one is most powerfull, the speed is higher, very close to slalom boards.

Thanks a lot to starboard for the ultrasonic!!
