iSonic 131 weight?
 
Remi and the guys ...

I have just ordered the new iS 131 WoodCarbon 2010, so what weight should I expect? :(

Also, I'm somewhat confused as when talking about weights of the new WoodCarbons compared to Woodies, what seems to be a hot topic, there are official weights on the Starboard's web site, but different ones on the ISAF's Registered Speed/Slalom Boards (Complete List) http://www.sailing.org/11671.php ... :eek: Does it mean that the weights registered with ISAF are for WoodCarbons? (Current explanation we constantly hear on why there are no weights for WoodCarbons on the Starboard's web is that not enough boards have be produced to calculate the average weight, but how was then possible to register boards with ISAF ???)

For example, the quoted weight for iS 121 2010 on the Starboard web for Wood is 7.15kg while on the ISAF's List only 6.77kg (which is exactly the difference that we should expect in favour of the Wood Carbons) and this is the same for all the boards - except the 131, for which I assume there is mistake in the ISAF's List as the quoted weight is 6.65kg (so lighter than 121!!!), maybe it should be 6.95kg (?) :cool: ... so guys at Starboard, please take a look at the ISAF's List and correct the data if necessary ! ;)

Hi Marko,

The weight on the ISAF list are the estimate weight from Cobra (we can give to ISAF only the estimate weight, because not confirm by Cobra), and we will get the official weight from Cobra in one week and will be publish on our web site, but you can be sure that your 131 will be lighter than the wood one. Buy the way for light wind the stifness of the Carbone is really a great help to get planning and accelerate.

Enjoy this board, particularly with 9mē with R16 50

Thanks for your understanding.

All the best

Thanks Remi,

I hope my post did not sound like a critique, as I only wanted to point to some published data that some guys on this forum might not be aware of ... a mere contribution to the discussion that for sure became more "hot" than anyone expected ... all of us looking forward to the data you will publish soon!

Regards,
Marko CRO 169

Hi Marko,

No problems, every year is the same, just this year we change technologie, so is normal you ask the question. As soon Cobra confirm us the average weight it will be on the web.

Have fun
