COACHG I have the 2013 Falcon 142. I also have 101 & 107 Isonics. Other than size, the Falcon doesn't sail any different than my Isonics. The Falcon planes very early, is fast and carries great speed through the jibe, just like the Isonics. Let cost be your guide.

mark h Hi Unreg

If your happy with your iSonics, your probably best staying with iSonics. It does make sense having a full set in the same brand. Don't worry about the diffeence in volume between the iS137 and Falcon 142, you will not be able to tell the difference as they are very similar dimensions.

If you can get a good close out deal on the iS137, I'd personally be going with it. I have tried the iS127 and at 95kg the difference between my iS137 and iS127 are very small, so go with what ever is the cheaper option.

You will love the iS137, for a 90kg+ rider, it has a massive range. I use fin sizes in 46, 48 and occasionally use a 52 (in sub 10k winds). Sail wise, I love both the 8.6 and 9.5. Occasionally I use the 7.8 if its very fluky and gusty.

kapten k I have the 110 and 127, but only sailed the 110 twice since i just got it. The 110 feels a lot smaller than the 127. I have 9.5 and 7.9 vapors.
I dont know yet if i feel the 127 and 110 is too close.. Both feel great. but the 127 is alot stiffer to gybe than the 110. The 127 stars feeling big pretty soon with 7.9 so i dont like that combo. i used the 7.9 on a97, and if the the wind died, i took the 127. I sold the 97 and got a 110 and a 90...
You wont get more range out of a 137 over the 127 if youre not 100kg+
The step up to a formula board is better if you really what light wind performance, but when im not planing on a 127 and 9.5 there is no wind...

Unregistered I have a 110, so 127 would be very close. Is the 127 a better board than the 127?

kapten k Perhaps better with 127? If you dont need the volume.. Falcon?WTF! thats light beer!

Isonic 137 or Falcon 142

Slightly unfair question as this is a sitar board forum; I have the chance to buy either a falcon 142 2013 or an Is137 2012. The Is137 is 100 cheaper and all my other boards are Isonics. Is the IS 137 a good board. I weigh 90kg and will use with 9.6
