IS101 Wood or Carbon wood ?
 
Hi,

I'm considering buying an IS101, mainly for 16+ conditions with sails 6.3 & 7.5. My weight is 86kg. I have 2 questions: 1. What is the real volume of the IS101 (I know it has been asked several times on this forum, but I can't find the answer anymore, who has the conversion table) ? 2. Which version (Wood or Carbon-W) is the stronger one, i.e. wich one will better survive a serious crash (strong bang of mast or boom on the deck) ?

Hi BelSkorpio,

For impact carbone is always less strong than wood but lighter and more rigide. The reason why we have a combiantion of this 2 material for our medium, boards. Wood is better in smaller size (need more control) and Carbone is better for the bigger one (need instant reaction)
