iS122 (07) planing range
 
Hi, I just purchased an '07 iS122 and have a 8.4m cammed sail on order. My other sails are 6.2 and 7.4 cammed. What are the minimum wind strengths I can expect to get planing on all sails: 8.4, 7.4, 6.2?

Thanks

I purchased the '07 ISonic 122 and Gaastra GTX 8.5. I'm about the same size as you. I've only used it once with the GTX so can only comment on the 8.4m sail range.
IMO about 12 knots with some efficient pumping.

been using this board almost a year.
1 of my favourite board.

used 8.5gtx, 8.5 overdrive and 6.5 gtx.

the 8.5 range seems more suitable with the board. fast and easy to control.
i weigh about 76kgs.

10kts> on 8.5

18kts> will be 6.5 up to 25kts<

well covered range

I've sailed iS122 several times, loved it and now I have one on order ;-)
I think you can expect to plane in around 11-12 knots (solid, not holey) with an 8.4. Sin_0 is right wrt sail range, I also believe 6.2 is a bit small, it's a smaller board territory.
