Isonic 133 or Isonic144
My board is Isonic 111(2008) and heigth 94kg, i'd like buy a board for big sail's (9m2 and 10m2) and ligth wind (8-11 knots) but i don't Know witch board 133 or 144.
You say 133 for "light sailors" and 144 for "heavier sailors" for me (94kg), i'm considered light or heavier sailor?

Hello again,
The Isonic 133 -2007 and the Isonic 133 - 2008, both models, at this moment, are in low price.
which board is what you prefer?
Because the Isonic 133 of 2009, in this moment, is still very expensive.

2008 great board. The 2009 no need to buy almost the same thing.

I would only go for the 144 for sails bigger than 10.0m2. I'm 90-92kg and have the 133, sail it mostly with a 9.0m2.

Do you find the 08isonic133 nose too short and tend to dip into chop. I am not a pro sailors but experience enough to find this irritating with a 8.5m & 52 cm R13 ?? Masttrack at recommended

Perhaps the fin is too powerful and is trimming the board noes down in the chop. Looks like you need a fin with a bit of rake or perhaps a bit more downhaul in your sail to help release your board nose and trim it up a bit. Or you are using your boom to low and you are pushing the nose down with your weight. Try your boom in a new higher setting.

Isonic 133/08 or Isonic 144/08 (for 82kg and ligth wind-8/11)
I want planing with only with sail 10m2 and small sail 9.0m2, because when i sail with 8.4 NothSail Daytona i put the Isonic 111.
For me with 94kg, i think is better 144/2008 than 133/2008?
What your opinion?

For that big sail, yes 144 isonic.

Joćo Leitćo 26th September 2008 12:58 AM

OK and thak“s for your opinion.
I'm going talk with my local Distributor to buy a Isonic 144/2008.

Thank's a lot.

See you soon
