The new Reflex is more powerfull than the Code Red 9,8 that Morane use last year, so that will be perfect with a better glide and cam rotation.
I am 88kgs and Morane can plane before me, but as soon I get planning I am faster due to my weight. Hope this help.
All the best

It makes me wonder.
I'm 86kg and I know that I can plane with my F161/12m2 starting from 6 knots, with strong pumping to get going.
Now, am I technically able to plane as fast as a 55kg raider in these wind conditions ?
If not, starting from which wind force, am I techically capable to compete with such a light rider ?

Just for information : Formula with 70 fin and 10mē can plane at 6 knots easy for a rider of 55 kgs. Bigger sail will give no benefits at all. To heavy and not efficient, thanks
Morane is the good exemple and finish 3 at the last Formula Windsurfing World Championship in senior.
Hope this help
All the best

|Farlo||Hi Agrelon, are you seriously considering a Formula and 10-ish sail? I would think that the additional weight of XXXL gear would make it useless for your 54 kgs. In other words, you may plane in 8/9 Knts with a 75 cm wide board plus 8.5 mē sail and 7/8 Knts with anything bigger (twice more expensive) but where is fun?|

Agrelon. I'm using a iS144 with 9m, 10m and 11m. 51cm and 57cm fins. I'm 105kg and 194cm. I guess this will be similar in sail carrying ability to the iS131 since there's only 8 litres difference in volume.
On the iSXXL, an 11m gives no real extra "early planing" benefit c/w 10m. This is due to the extra weight drag etc. 10m is the optimal max sail size for iSXXL. It'll work, but not to any advantage. Slogging with an 11m is no fun either. For me, the iS144 is best with a 9m/51cm fin. Light wind heaven
If your looking to get out on an 11m pretty often, but dont want to go full formula, take a look at the iS150. I once borrowed an iS150 from my local shop. I was very impressed with it. It does feel a lot bigger than the iS144 so will comfortably take an 11m, but I think it will be to big for your 7.5m. 9m would be the smallest real size for the iS144.
Even though SB state 6.5m to 10.5m for the iS131, its real usefull range is 9m to 10m (maybe 8.5 to 10m). I think you struggle to find a board that will truly work in the 7.5m to 11m range.

|agrelon||(You mentioned taking an 11m2 on a board that is less wide than the 131, 77cm as opposed to 85cm, so I guess this setup should work in that respect.)|
