Isonic board construction
 
Hi
I have noticed that when comparing Isonic to other slalom boards,
the Isonics have an extra large sail range.
What makes the Isonic special and have that extra capacity?

Cheers

The have wide tails for their size, but it also depends how you sail them. A friend of mine has used a 87 with an 8.0 for speedsailing. But that would be bad for slalom.
Also, some manufactures recommend the "ideal" sail sizes, while Isonics recommeds more what you can use. I dont think many would choose a isonic 107 as a "ideal" board when overpowered on a 5.8 racesail, or really underpowered on a 9.0.
It also depends on your weight, if you are 120kg you will use a 107 as a highwind board, and if you are 55kg it will rock as a lightwind board.
