Hi Rod R,

Both board are production one, the 380 is in Full Carbon and the 320 in AST the reason why the rail are slightly less sharp. But any way the board work great up wind and very exciting in planning condition.

All the best

Today I did an interesting comparison between my longboard (372 cm Equipe) and my formula (F159) with a 8.5 freerace sail. I used a "small" 60 fin on the F159 which gives excellent slalom like control and speed.
In 8 - 12 knots and fluky wind the longboard did quite well. It pointed fantastically while riding the dagger. I managed to clock 16 knots this way - great feeling. Planing was possible in 15 knots, but never really speedy or powerful (I clocked 23 knots as max).
I switched to formula, and this was not really efficient upwind when not planing in less than 10 knots (4.5 knots compared to 9 knots on the longboard with pointing definitely in favour of the longboard).
The formula went planing way earlier than the longboard though, and it went through the holes a lot better. From steady 12-15 knots of wind the formula was superior to the longboard on any course, and control was a lot better. Planing speed was a steady 3-4 knots higher on the formula.

These two boards represent two different styles. In fluky low wind the longboard (even with a 10m sail) is a fantastic cruiser, and riding the dagger has its own excitement when anything else is schlogging. In planing winds for the formula board, this is where the adrenaline kicks in.

Just my experience. I'll keep both boards ;-)
