Cabrinha X3 vs Duotone Slick
« on: January 18, 2022, 01:58:07 PM »
Having a windsurfing background naturally I took to the Duotone Wings. Really like the original and own 4m and 5m.  They weren't best for packing and travel so I also bought Duotone 6m. Great wing, light, powerful but I really miss the confident feel of the boom. With the boom I can jibe without even looking not so with the Unit, I find myself searching and grasping for the handles.  I found the same to be true with my F-One Swing..

Looking at buying a Duotone Slick but also considering the Cabrinha X3 which has "mini booms". I am thinking the Cabrinha might be a nice solution for easy packing and travel but also having the convenience of the boom handles.

Anyone out there used both ? any comments welcome. thanks

the Cabrinha handles provide the same joy as Duotone booms in my opinion.

I’ve ridden the 2021 Mantis. FYI, the Mantis 2022 model is only weeks away. Samples are around in Florida.

There is young kid riding Ft Pierce doing insane stuff on the X3. He makes it look good.

Thanks Dwight good to know.   I don’t think Mantis has windows which I prefer.
