So I picked up a Sector 60 V5 on Friday. Got my first test on Sunday.

Conditions: <10knots

There were a 14m and 17m inflatables that were unable to ride downwind on twintips. We had a few 21m and 18m flysurfers all riding the flyrace dagger board riding with no issues.
I flew a 13m Xbox and the sector 60, hauling upwind like a tank. Its definitely a different feel from the 52 V2. I notice the tri fin rides different. Doesnt seem to catch as quickly, but once moving it feels secure and hauls ass. The board is significantly larger and heavier, but while riding I didn't seem to notice it much. Feels really stable. Im looking forward to more sessions!

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.

I tested my sector in some good chop over the weekend. A way better improvement over the quad fin. Launching off the waves and landing didnt cause any squirling like the quad fins did. Super smooth and fast over the chop. I was thinking that this would be a lightwind flatwater board due to the size but i had alot of fun in the chop and am looking forward to my next session with it! tri fin is a major improvement. I would like to try one single strap at the rear as i had it set up with dual straps for light wind.
