Fanatic's Freewaves are faster AND looser, what you might think is a good thing, but lots of sailors find it fast and squirrelly. Lighter in weight, harder rails, more curvy tail, flatter tail rocker than most of the rest.
Kode is very close in speed, but more controllable.

I rode a 115 Freewave/6.5 Cheetah at Bird Island last month and liked it. Although the smaller ones with higher wind might feel squirrelly, this was fine and turned really nice. It didn't feel like the short/wide rrd 110 fsw that I rode a couple of seasons. Not really fond of that outline.

Oh sorry, I've used the 75, 85, and 103 versions.
