The 127 is an excellent light winder at our weight (82kgs). But you will not be planing in 8kts - 10kts. A 9.6 on the 127 will be great and you'll be smoking in 10-15kts.

To get the most out of...

Just curious Mark - you say the tail width is not effective for speed stance on a slalom board. Could inboard rear straps change the equation? What if the 97 had an alternative option closer to the...

Yep, and i had a ball! Last winter had a VERY gusty day, 5-25kts. I used the 127, 7.0m combo with a 44cm G10 Canefire. I was planing more consistently than most others and I think I pulled a 30kt...

I have the 2011 and use a Talon 48cm G10. It's best with Reflex 7.8 and a little under finned with my CR8.8m - but manageable. I'm 82kgs. Many people suggest that carbon is better for longer fins but...

I'm an intermediate about 80kgs (maybe 83kgs in winter :D) I have a 2011 127L and a 2010 111L which I find a great combo. The guys on new 117s are maybe a little quicker when there is enough wind but...

I have the 127 2011 and I use a Talon 48 for normal conditions (7.8/8.8) or a Canefire 44 in stronger wind (7.0/7.8). I'm 80kgs. They work well for me.

2013 - how's the Serenity?

I noticed that the Serenity and K15 are absent from the Product listing. Have they been discontinued or just forgotten?

I'd say you're on the right track, the 93L with a 5.0 and a 5.8 would be a great combo and you'll probably only need one mast. Sails to consider that are similar to a Switch Blade are KA Koncept,...

Yeah, could be right mark. The 7.8 reflex is a great sail but the deep boom recess creates a different set up to the code red which I'm more used to. I have been sailing with the lines fairly forward...

Thanks for the feedback guys. Ken, I like the idea of the slightly forward facing rear strap.

My fin was my iS121 fin so probably just a tad big but it feels ok. A couple of good local sailors...

Thanks gyurmo

I use an adjustable outhaul and like my sail fairly full - usually touching the boom up to the back harness line on a reach.

I'll keep trying mast foot positions, hopefully I'll...
