View Full Version : How to make a choice between an iSonic 97 and 107 model 2011
28th October 2011, 12:25 AM
I like to buy (second hand) an isonic 97 or 107 model 2011. I am 82 kg. i surf on a lake, that is rather choppy due to sailings boats. The sails i have are; 8.5 ,7.3 , 6.7, 6.2 and 5.8. And i have an 133l iSonic (2009) and a Kombat 106l ( model2006). If the water is too choppy for my 101 then i take my Kombat with the same sail
What is now a good choice?.
And are there persons that can compare the Futura 111 (or 101) with iSonic 107 ( or 97) model 2011.
Maybe Remi you are the only one. Give it a try.

Hi Jan W
It's depend what you want, just to inform you that the 107 will be better with the 8.5 & 7.3 and the 97 for the other sails. Wich one you use the most on this board?
For this wide sails range the 97 will be better option anyway over iSonic 107 & Futura 101 or 111
All the best

Thanks Remi for your advice. For the 8.5 and 7.3 I use often my 133 iSonic. If the wind is constant and the chop is too big for the 133 i take the 101. My goal is to surf wih the 6.7, 6.2 and 5.8. But till so far i miss the control and i hope that the model 97 or 107 will give me more control in chop. Are you agree?.
Last time i dropped the boom with almost 4 cm and it was a great difference in control. Is the boomhight independent of the sailsize? Two questions, two answers.
