Which 2 (two) sails (9,0-7,6 or 9,0-7,0) for 122 to cover biggest wind range? 191cm/92kg

My view: 9,0 and 7,6

I use 9.2 and 7.8 at 85 kg........very nice,7.0 is more a iS 101 size to me.

For the widest wind range with only 2 sails, I would argue 7.0 and 9.0 m2 :
Rémi (90 kg) is using Code Red R2 9.0 (SL2 44 cm fin), 7.7 (SL2 38 cm fin) & 6.7 m2 sails (SL2 36 cm fin) on his iSonic 122 : http://www.star-board.com/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=12&thread_id=22314

Have to agree with JM here.
I recently had a chance to sail the Is 122 with a 5.6 m2 Hucker (on the 460 cm SW Backbone mast in slalom mode, and even though I didn't have enough downhaul) against a similar Hucker on an Is 105 and while I only sailed a couple of legs in the race, the IS 122 was keeping up pretty well. A bit more tuning on my poart and I think I might have been competitive.
So the 9.0/7.0 combinaiton and some rig tuning would yeild a significantly wider overall range.
I've sailed the Is 122 with a 9.1 NXfw down to a 5.6 Hucker and it's reall a super wide range board, but the sweet spot is around 7.0-8.0 m2.
Hope this helps,
