Didn't really like the feel. Techno is much quicker to respond. Switched
to the 117 liter version for the remainder of the vacation, and liked it.
Visit my web page at:
to see my wife with one later in the week. She liked it, but was using a
much smaller sail.
Trust this helps....

Re: "Didn't really like the feel."
I have tried the 2000 HS Fanatic Bee 144, 117, 104, and 94 at Aruba's
Sailboard Vacations in February. I also did not like the feel. Comparing
to the 1999 HS boards, the 2000 equivalent boards are noticeably slower to
respond. This may be due to the position of the powerbox. I like the fins
in the aft position on trim boxes, and I can't do that with the new
I like a board works in strong winds, but can still be uphauled and
if the wind dies. I'm sure there are better boards for every condition,
I could only keep one board it would be the Bee.
