either way I wasnt tryin to start yet another rings vs phantom debate I just wanted to post a picture of my boat! as for phantoms I think they are fantastic boats both performance and looks are great , the reason we have a ring is because the condition of the boat was mint and the price was right also the fact that its nice to be different I meen a ring that performed well would be a great success. If I had a choice I wouldnt pick either I would choice a bernico as the boat is used for skiing

Not particularly, no, but then I don't think Rings are known for it either.

I think Mike builds a pretty tough boat, and my personal preference of Phantom over the Ring, is based on styling choice and my own feelings on the way the two differ in handling characteristics.

Of course, these are just my own opinions! It wouldn't do for us to all like the same things, would it?

No, quite right Jon.

Thats why no-one should object to the fact that I like Driver 560's, Ring 20 D's, Flether Arrowbolt targa & Glastron gullwings........to name but a few
