hello to every body...
first post in new site...finally a forum like a forum :)
so where are the fType in 2007?
i have a ft 138 which i using with 9,0 sqm V8 NP for light wind conditions on lake or sea breeze...now i see there aren't similar board in new 2007 range.
Why?
I sonic seems more a slalom board...formula type board i dont see any...its a new slalom deal?

about the new new site, my little comment (imho): there are few fotos of the board features...like channel or v or similar.
and another thing please more wallpaper, thanks.

bye Valter

Hi Widegap,

I think that the F-Type line was merged into the iSonic line to present a stronger theme across an overall wind range from super strong to very light. I think the thing that may be a little confusing is that in the merging, the F-Types received design updates that include some of the design and appearance attributes of the smaller (narrower) iSonics. Similarly, the Sonic line was also conceptually merged into the iSonic line.

In my opinion, it was a sound move, because one can select a board that offers the width, volume and length that they need to coincide with the prevaiiing wind and water conditions, with an emphasis on speedy performance with control.
