Just been out for a quick sail on my new Mistral Synchro 86 Pro Edition. Wind became a bit fluky but was out enough to get a good feel for the board. What's the difference compared to my last Synchro (83L)? Well being a pro edition you immediately feel it is much lighter. Also you feel the difference having a bit more volume even though its only 3 L more. What I noticed most is the quick acceleration - don't think I have sailed a board with such early planing before. Also it is much more sensitive - going into a tack the board is practically round before I have even got my back foot out of the straps! Also gybing you have to really keep it going on a broad reach once you have gybed the sail or the board quickly turns round into the wind. Interested to know what its like when I try a 360 - didnt attempt (NOTE the word ATTEMPT! Still havent managed to complete one yet!) a 360 today. Maybe I will finally manage one on this board.
