Shawn, thanks for updating!
Did you have a chance to try V2 60? If yes, how it would compare to the V5 60 ?
I've been riding 52v2 for few years and rode v2 60 for one season and did not really like it, could not carve and jybe it like I would the 52 anytime, so was wandering if the big v5 is more playfull but still kept its lightwind/upwind abilities like the old v2.
I tried the 60 one design with the quad fin. it wasnt back to back so I cant give a great comparison but if I recall it seemed as if there was more forceback with the quad fin to get it pointed upwind compared to the trifin design. I had no issue rocketing upwind on the tri fin in marginal wind conditions.
