View Full Version : 2009 isonic 122-111-101

Hallo Remi or Ian,
at my 80 kg I'm pretty sure to go for the new 133 for light wind comp but I'm tossing up for choosing the smaller size.
I see the 122 is 114 l. at 75 cm overall width and the 111 is 110 l. at 68 cm width.I think they have a very similar aim (even if I see the 122 more for 8,4-7,8 and sometimes 9,0 and the 111 for 7,8-7,2 and sometimes 6,7 or 8,4) but probably are addressed to different style/weight guys.Can you help me to understand that?
Then also the 101 target will be more clear to me.

Hi ???

I am 81 kgs and choose the iSonic 133 & 111 :

iSonic 133 with 9 & 10
iSonic 111 with 6,7 ; 7,7 & 9
iSonic 86 with 5,6 & 6,7

As you see the 9m work well on the 111 and the 122 is to close to the 133. 8,4m will be perfect on the 111.

Julien Quentel (82kgs) choice for PWA, but they never race in tricky condition :
iSonic 76
iSonic 101
iSonic 122

All the best

My vote on the middle: Sonic 100
In its range: absolutely kills it:)

Bring it back:)

having owned the isonic 111 2007 I can't understand how a 9,0 or 8,4 can work on a similar size board (isonic 2009) with just 0,7 cm wider tail.
Where's the trick?

26th September 2008, 03:04 PM
Hi ???,

You totally right for the iSonic 111 2007, but the 2008 can handle the 9m with out problems in flat water. The board is more wide in front than the tail and help you a lot for bigger sails.

All the best

thank you Remi,
do you find the 2009 111 lot faster than 2007?Where is the difference when sail it?Is it still good for 6,7 (it really helps when in slalom comp you've registered just 2 boards).

Hi Remi

I like your 3 board quiver, that would be mine too, EXCEPT I d keep my 100 , it still kills the others in its range:)

90 kg

The sonic has been clocked over 40 knots and will do so on a 6.6, that is if you can slow to jibe, L:)

bring that board back:)

The R&D focus a lot on top end speed and confort with out changing the planing ability and acceleration for all the iSonic range this year. So the iSonic 111 2009 is faster than the previous model and more confortable. You will make a big jump from 2007 to 2009 model.

Yes the 6,7 still working very well on this board and you will feel that the board glide more than before and need less power on the back feet.

All the best

Hallo Remi,

As the owner of an iSonic 111 2007 and mainly sailing it with a 7.8 m2 at 78 kg can you help me with making a dicision for a 2009 model?
What are the differences, at my weight, between the 2009 iS 111 and the iS 122?
At only 4 liters volume difference how do the behave at early planing, topspeed and in overpowerd conditions . My impression of the 2007 iS 111, I like the board, it's not realy early planing and needs a lot of power in my back leg overpowered to conrole it.
My other board is a 91 liter Falcon and the sailsizes are 7.0 and 6.3.

Thank you for an answer.

Im about to get a 2009 isonic 122, Im planning to use 7.5 to 9.5 sails sizes do you consider good idea? Im 89 kgs and home spot is not windy. thank you

Hi BeC,
the 122 will be perfect with the 7,5. Would recommend fins with 42 to 44cm.
The 9,5 is big for the board and your weight. Not the best choice, but you can sail, but you should use a bigger fin. For the 9,5 the 133 or even 144 would be nice.
With 122 plus 7,5 ou can sail in a lot of wind.
9,5 plus 122 is not the best idea out of my view. I used an 8,8 plus the 122, have around 85 kg. This combo was nice. But 9,5 has probably more weight ...
You should test it out and perhaps you will like it.

Overall the 122 has a wide windrange and you can put a 7,0 on the board as well. Would say the best working sizes are 7,5 to 8,5.

Hope it helps,

Thank Chris for your comment and help, then I will use 8.5 sail sizes on the isonic 122, I have one jp 114 slalom (for 6.0 m2) and hifly 144 freeride (9.5 m2)...middle would be isonic 122 for 7.5 to 8.5. My home spot is not windy, during winter time we have 16 avergare.

Hi, I've sailed a lot with the iS122 these years and I am very happy with it: i'm waiting for the 121 now..

The board is superb with 7.5 range sails but I think it's even better with the 9!

But, since I see you also have a 114 slalom board (I guess about 70 width) I think you should really go for a iS 133.
iSonics have a really good range and it's reductive to sail it with only one sail: with the 133 you can go nicely with the 9.5 - 8.3 range and you can put 7.8 down sails on your 114 jp. Sell the hifly! :-)

Thanks Alex,

I have a hifly free 130 and plan to sell it, Im going to buy isonic 122 for 7.5 and 8.5 sails sizes, you are right my jp 144 slalom has 70 width with good sail range (6.0 to 9.0) thats why I think to use isonic 122 upper sizes considering its 75 width.

thank you.

5th January 2010, 04:21 PM
Humm, I must have missed something..

I mean, now you have 114 jp, 130 hifly, 144 hifly right?

To get the best from your quiver, sell both the hiflys and get a iSonic 133: since the range of the iSonics are great, you would cover the 8.3 - 9.5 range with the iS while you can cover the 7.8-6 with the jp114, no need (IMHO) for other boards..
Today slaloms have huge range, no need to have 5cm steps..

Hi, I already got the isonic 122 and tried with 9.5 sail size today, I tell you isonic goes very well with it (ezzy infinity 9.5 sail), no spin out, good control, good speed. Take note of this. Thank you.

My vote on the middle: Sonic 100

Hi there,

I am looking for Kode Tufskin or Futura 122 second hand and good shape.
I am based in China. But i believe, few people has this board here.

I will be in South of France and Paris this summer (June-July 2010). If someome there has it, I am happy to try it, and to buy.

Hi! I have been using isonic 122 2009 for 4 months and can tell that is very stable using 9.5 sail size, ligth wind condition, very early planing, no spin out. I use 46 cm fin, good control.

Hi Remi
I have an '07 122 isonic and love it with 8.4 7.8 and 6.4 - rider weight 94 kg. Will I notice any performance improvement with an '09 122 isonic or are they essentially the same board. If any improvements or changes what would they be?
