2013 Crazyfly Raptor Pro vs 2012 FS team vs 2013 Protour

Postby godfather016 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 8:49 pm

I was buying a board from Kiteboarding.com, and the 2012 FS board I bought they sold prior to shipping it to me. (Trust me I was pissed). Anyways, I have a handful of options. Either, swap the board out for one of these 3 and pay more, or get a inferior model at same as a direct swap. I am opting to upgrade to one of these. The upgrade prices are as follows.
Raptor Pro - +$206
FS Team - +$310
Protour - +$270

I am torn between these because of the fact that are comparable. I am flying a switchblade 11m. I was leaning towards the FS team board but I thought I would reach out to my fellow kiters to see what they think.

What brand are these boards? FS as in Flysurfer?

I've ridden the crazy fly raptor pro, not sure what the other boards are. I was impressed with the raptor pro. Handles chop really well and pops well.

I would get my money back though and shop around though.

Edit: Just looked at the crazyfly website and realized the board I rode was the raptor pro LTD, not the regular raptor pro.
