Actually Karen I'd agree about the keeping their fresh look!

I personally would like wood option, without the wood look as weird as that might sound!

A pity the smaller Isonics are not being built in Technora.
Personally I do prefer the D-Ram (or the new Technora material) because they are cheaper and because they keep their original fresh look.

Per Ian's post (the 2nd post above), they are only doing 133 and down in Wood this year.

I wish they would do Technora, I like the durability and price better...

Man am I glad I bought my DRAM iSonic 125 this year!

I need to buy him a baby brother next year, maybe a 101, I guess that will have to be a wood one...
I only posted the pictures I found. I imagine they will all be available in DRAM like last year. I figure they will fix their website soon and we'll see more of the board details.

I'm thinking of getting a sibling for my iS105... maybe a iS122. ;-)

That isonic 155 interests me, does it come with a deep tuttle box, and what fins? Planing thresholds, average?

And can this board reach?

Until the website makes these pictures available, this might be useful for some.

Hi Tim,

For 74kg and 5.8/6.5m the iS87 is the better choice for powered blasting and slalom use (speed obviously too, comparing these two)
It won't carry a 7.5m that well, and if you're running GPSS 1Hr and the wind is a bit patchy, then it maybe easier to maintain a higher AVERAGE (although lower peak) on iS94 -unless you're really sure to be powered, in which case you will have an easier ride (a big deal for serious 1Hr sessions) on the smaller is87.

iS94 is a serious weapon in the 6.5-7.5m range (and useful in 1Hr mode as above) but might be getting alittle big for 74kg in true 5.8m conditions, unless you have pretty flat water in that wind..

Hope that nails it, bit less us know if you need more.

Cheers ~ Ian

Q5 =My weight is about 74 kg and i surf on flat water (very choppy most of the time) in Holland
A5 = OK, but if you would like us to recommend one of iS87or 94, please let us know your sail size range (min/max/typ) and also the style of sailing you will prefer on iS (slalom race/blasting/speed?)
All of those things are serious factors to decide the choice.

Hi Ian,

Thank you for the quick response
The sails i would be using would be 6.5 m? and 5.8m? freerace sails (maybe 7.5 in very flat conditions, but it's no must.. i have a hypersonic for that sail)
once i need to go smaller i tend to use more comfortable board/sail combo's like a old tiga wave with freeride sail
My style is not purely speed oriented, but mainly slalom minded.
I love to do "one hour" sessions for gps-speedsurfing.
