I have the 2008 isonic 111, so I can't speak about the 2009 model. However, my favoriate sails for the 111 are 7.6 and 6.6. I have used my 8.4 occasionally, but for me, it seems a bit big for the board. It works ok, speed is fine, but it isn't real comfortable for me. I weigh 79 kg and usually sail in light to moderate chop in area lakes. I use Maui Sails TR 3's and 4's.

I don't slalom race much, so if I need the 8.4 to get the 111 moving, I will probably be on my formula board instead. Our winds are highly variable when in the 10-15 knot range, so the formula board will be on plane much more than the 111 in these conditions.

If you have steady winds where you sail, you may get more use out of an 8.4.

Hope this helps.

I use a 9m RS1 on my IS111 09, this works OK but needs a bigger fin, a 48 works well.

Mixed bag of answers. I guess that the conditions/water state you sail in will be important. I'm 105kg/194cm and use an 08 iS111 with a 43cm select viper on both a 7.8m & 9m. For me, the 9m gets used in light winds (flat to small chop conditions) so no problems at all. The 9m would be alot more physical in large swell/rough seas. The 7.8m is fine in all conditions so I guess that a 8.4m would be a perfect match for you. Powered up, an 8.4m will not be to big. If the wind dies, you might get your ankles wet, but certainly no sinker.
