I'm planning to buy a 'smaller' iSonic to complement the 125 that I own now.
Should I go for the 2006 105 or would it be worth to wait for the 2007 101.
How do both boards compare ?
(I am mainly into speed)

Hi Willy,

With the 2007 101 you will get a mild advantage in speed mainly due to refinements in trim/control (allowing for hard/er riding at top speed) ... it's not huge c/w 2006 105, which is still a fast ride, especially in open water fully powered slalom blasting.

Jibe/control on the new board is definitely improved in 2007, it's a standout in the new iS line.

Please let us know if you need more info etc.

Cheers ~ Ian

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the reply. It confirms the rumours. I guess I 'll give the 101 a try.

At the moment I'm surfing the 105 (again). During the ESM in the Netherlands I guess some testing is possible:). The additional improvent make it worth I think to compare the 101 and 105. I have a good deal with the local shop so I can interchange these boards:p!

Hey Hans,
I will not be able to attend the ESM :|
Have fun (and wind) there ... I'm expecting the 101 soon now ...
