F2 Axxis 273 with 7.0 race sail (Z1)

Hi,

I am planning to buy a new board. I was looking for a F2 ride 277,wich
I have already sailed a couple of times and loved it. But I found an
offer for a F2 AXXIS 273 ( 98L ). I have never sailed this board. I was
wondering if this board can handle a NP 7.0 Z1 ( 99 model ). I am more
slalom oriented, like going really fast ( who doesn't ??! :p ). But
also want to use this board when the wind blows harder with my NP Soul
5.8 . At this situation I know this board would rip, I think it would
be a great manouver board, easy gybes etc...
But how about early planning and top end speed when using with my
Z1 7.0 ? I have never sailed a less than 100 liters board, that's why I
am asking.

Or a more simple question. How does it compare to the RIDE 277 ? (Wich
I have already sailed)

I am 155 pounds and sail in open ocean with knee high waves and only
sail when it is more than 12 knots ( My NP Z1 7.0 is my biggest sail)

Thanks in advance

Hi There,

I currently own an Axxis 267 and it works find with my 7.0m2 North sail. On
a 32cm fin.
I'm 70 kg which I think is around the same weight as you.

Have also used 6.0, 5.5, 4.5 and even a 4.0m2 sail on this board. I would
say it's happiest with the 5.5, 6.0 and 7.0m2 sails.

I can also confirm that it is fast (faster than the Mistral Flows) and I
far prefer it to the Rides that I have sailed. It's more lively and easier
to sail in chop. Early(ish) to plain, but I also have a 115 litre board for
the less windy days (F2 Air 265) which is better.

Check the reviews on my site;

Have fun out there!
