i used to hate my phantom but i love it now, took me 3-4 months to get it to work consistently but i'm glad i kept it, using large mayhems on the sides and a wct/2.1 rear, i'm 155lbs on a stocko 5'7" in full 5mm winter kit.

you do need to shuffle around a bit for sure to get the most out of it unless the waves are really good but i can get it grooving even in smaller weak shit now as long as i make sure to stay tight in the pocket,

i haven't had a board that comes out of turns like the phantom does for a long long time.
