Default Futura 111 vs 122

No luck on the "Ask our team forum" so trying you, Kevin.

I am going to replace my '05 Carve 111 with a Futura, and am debating whether to go even wider than the Futura 111 and buy the 122.

While there are several published tests of the 122, I can find nothing on the 111, so perhaps the Team can help with 2 questions:

1. How close is the 111 to the 122 in performance, assuming a 7.0 freeeride sail and an 85 kg sailor? Can I assume that the test results will be very close, other than the differences created by the width?

2. The 2D photos on the website show a distinct difference in the location of the fin box, with the 111 having a box considerably closer to the tail, suggesting the the performance of the boards could be quite different. Is this an error with the image, and, if not, why is there a difference in the positioning and how does this affect performance?

Thanks!

Speedy,

I have only ridden the 111 and can tell you that it is a great board. It will woirk great with a 7.0 sail. I know that there has been a lot of developement into the Futura's and I am sure that the 122 is no slouch.
