isonic 127
Hi all, i need help choosing my next board. my quiver is:

Is 121 wc with 7,7 / 9
Is 101 08 with 6,7/ 7,7

i.m 86-87 kg, and i'm thinking of buy the new 127 for have more light wind range. i usually surf in chop condition (0,5-1 mt) and 10-18 kns gusty wind.(colico ,Como lake).
could the 127 2011 be a good choice or risk to be too large (85) in these contition?

thans, Cris

Hi Chris

Are thinking of going with the 121 & 101, and the 127 as a third board, or do you mean either a 121 or 127 plus a 101?

Three boards makes the choice easier, but you can still get a great usable range from two boards if you choose the correct gap between boards.

127 and a 101 would give you a usefull range. The 127/9m and two good fins will see you from 10k to low 20k's easy. Then jump on to the 101/7.7/6.7 in solid 20k plus winds.

I would only say the 121 would be good if you were going for the 90, but as your getting the 101 its got to be a no.

Your a pretty big guy, but If your concerned about the 127 being to big, the 117 would be a good choice as well as it will be good with a 9m, and with a 2nd smaller fin the 7.7 will just about be very good as as well.

I guess at Como lake, the 6.7m is not used to much, more the 7.7 and 9m. This could mean that the new 117 would be king of the lake:)

Just my 2 cents:)

Hi mark, thanks a lot for tips

the new 127 should repalce the 121, that actually use with 9/ 7,7 with 2 fin. the 121 with 7.7 in overpowered condition works very well, but often , in 9 gusty condition i have the impression that a larger board could be more efficient and give more speed; at the same time the 121 , when overpowered with 9 and hard chop is very phisical : my doub is that the 127 should be more critical on chop and if could be ride with 7,7 when the wind is strong but very gusty

Hi Chris

In your case I will choose the 117 Wide for the 7.7 and 9.0, this size will work perfectly on it. The 127 will be 2 big and will work only with the 9.0 with this choppy and your definitely go for 117 W

All the best

Oooophs, sorry I meant the 117 wide (not the 117) like Remi says.
