Unregistered Hey, thanks for the replies guys
I'm a 85-90 kg Surfer. Will that be a problem?

NED136 I think it depends on your weight: if your not to heavy, 9.3 will still be oke. If you are 90+ kg, it is not a good choice (from my own experience), as you need the Isonic powered up 90+ kg, 8.6 sail and lots of wind is a good combo.

mcross19 If the two models of sails were the same and rigged on the correct masts and could be locked down I would say the 9.3 would definitely be quicker taking into consideration you were using the same fin.

Unregistered Thanks,
thats my opinion too, but some guys on the beach are like: Ehh you can't go over 8.6 wih 75 cm.
Will the 9.3 be slower than the 8.6 at 12-14 knots?

BelSkorpio I use often a 8.8 on my IS122 / 2008. It's a magic combination when the wind is strong and stable enough. Don't see any problem with the 9.3 either.

Hey Guys,
i bought an older isonic (121/75/2010) and i am curious what you would ride in light wind conditions.
I thought the 8.6 would be the obvious choice for the 75cm width, but i'd rather have a 9.3 for early planing.
What combination would you choose?
Can you go at the very limit of the 9.3 at the upper wind level?
greetings Arvid
