RRD Quads

Hi all,
I was just wondering has anybody tried both of the RRD quads and how they compare? The wave cult quad sounds better for european conditions that we get in uk and ireland but how much of a difference is there between them in reality?
Would the hardcore wave still be good in the mushy onshore conditions that we get?
I would appreciate any opinions or comments
Cheers

I have a hardcore 68 quad , it is a great board for consistent strongs winds , 4.5 and above say . My mates , all slighter heavier than me have 75 cult quads which seem a little better in lighter , 4.7 ish winds , which is what you would expect. As i weigh 70k i think the 75 quad would be too big for me in strong winds but i would have definitely got a cult if they made a 68l version , i think it would be suited to the majority of euro style conditions.

must have been a seriously flat landing to snap the hardcore version as it has stringers...

If it was snapped through normal use you should be given warranty especially if it was done within 2 days...go ask seasprite

Very true, if we had seen or heard of this we would be all over it. I have not personally seen any warranties on quads this year and have been spanking my 4 quads quite hard with no problems !

I have used both and the Cults are indeed more all round and the Hard Cores more focussed on bigger winds, waves and on full power riding.
At 90 kilos I use the 92 and 83 cults alot and the 75 when its windy. I ll be getting my hands on the 91 hard core for riding for the winter. Our regular customers and team riders are loving the quads, their qualities of grip, control, upwind ability, ease of sailing and the ability to both wave ride and jump on them is proving very popular.

Put some 4 wheel drive in your sailing : )
Enjoy,
Jem
