Default 2004 Acid 74 question...good choice?

I have an opportunity to buy an 2004 Acid 74 (wood). Does anyone have any experience with this particular board -- myself not being familiar with the Acid line. I currently have a Fanatic FW88 -- ideal range 4.7 to upper 5's and a 2000 JP255 78 liter. Would the Acid 74 basically replace my JP 255, have things changed that much since 2000? I weigh 165 lbs and sail 90% of the time in open ocean swell / bump and jump / and very occasional small waves. Is particular Acid a good choice? -- with sails 5.3-3.7. There were a couple of guy's I sailed with in the past that loved the Acid's...but said something about there being a problem with the wood construction in the past.

Cheers,

Ivan

Hi windtzu,
I was sailing on the acid 74 in 2004. The board was quite easy to handle and had a wide windrange. Was sailing sailsizes from 5.3 m? to 4.1m? and fins from 23 to 20 cm. Was a great choice one medium to strong wind machine, having fun in bump and Jump conditions and as well in breaking waves. As well freestylestuff can be practised. THe board is just a bit tricky if the wind blows very unstable with many windlows, because it?s a kind of classic shape, which needs wind in the sail to plan.
All the best,
chris pressler
