iS 111 -08 and weed fins
I have a iSonic 111 and will need a weed fin. I sail with a Sailworks NX 7.1 race sail. But will next year also use a 8.2.
I am thinking about a Lessacher Duo Weed 32 as I have friends who is very pleased with them. But can it handle a 8.2 and also be good upwind and for slalom sailing or should I go for the 36 fin for the 8.2 sail.
I have today 32 and 36 of Lessacher Quattro cut weed (not the chameleon) fins but I have problems with spinouts and the ride is nervous. Both fins act the same with 7.1 upwind and halfwind but ok downwind. Anyone tried these fins.
Would a duo formula 32 fin be a better choise if it were to be found in normal tuttle. It has more lift and perhaps would be more like the standard fins.
Had a short response from Wolfgang and a 32 might be enough for both sails but have anybody tried this setup and can tell me a little more about it before I decide.
You are having spinout issues with the Lessacher Duo fins?
That's very interesting.
I have the 32 cm/36 cm/40 cm Lessacher Duo fins and I have never had
any spinout issues.
Yes, I've spun the 32 and 36 out a time or 2, but only when I jumped on the fin
before the board had dveloped any speed. So, no water going by the fin to get the
foils to work.
I like the 32 cm up to 7.5 m2.
For the 8.2 I would think the 36 cm Duo would be better, but I'm pretty sure I've
sailed the 32 with an 8.5 m2 a few times.
If you are racing slalom are you using the Lessacher weed fins?
The fins Im having trouble with is Lessacher Quattro Cut Weed. They are white and black and made of G10 material. But I guess not many have tried them out.
The Duo is the one im thinking of. I actually tried a DUO today. Borrowed from a friend. It seems to be a good fin but I didnt get fully up to speed as wind was not strong enough. I had my iS111 and Sailworks 7.1 NX cambersail.
I guess I will have to have 2 fins. 32 and 36 Duo Weed. And yes they will be used for slalom sailing but also just race with friends.
