Sails and fins for 117 Wide
Hi Remi and fellow rideres

Im a 78kg intermediate rider and sail in the sea.
I have a Kode 86, Futura 101 and 122. Sails from 4.7 to 8.0m

Just bought a Isonic 117 W wood from 2011 and im thinking in changing my sails.
With my Futura 122 i use NP V6 7.0 and 8.0m (these sails have 2 mini-cambers), i want to sell these sails and buy a 7.0m and a 8.6m
Im thinking in buying 3 or 4 cambers sails (Gun Cannonball or Mega XS, Severne Overdrive or Reflex) along with 2 fins (40cm and 44cm)

Do you think its ok or i will need another sail between these 2?
And the fins, 40 and 44 is ok for these 2 sails?

Sometimes, when the wind is very inconstant but the sea is very flat i use my 6.2 sail on the 122 instead of the 101 because i need some floatation to come back when the wind drops to almost nothing....... do you think its possible to use a 6.2 sail on the 117W in these conditions (never overpowered)?

Thank you

Hi Mario,

For lower budget I recommend you the Overdrive IV with Blue Line mast in 8.6 & 7.0 for more the Reflex IV 8.6 & 7.0 but if you not race Overdrive will be way enough.
For the fin 44 and 40 will be correct, recommend you the Drake Slalom DW Ready to Race who are specially develop for this board.

Hope this help

All the best
