Yep, I had the same feeling with the 85 wide slalom boards I was on.

When I was fully powered up, I was going like a rocket. Super boards.
On slightly downwind courses, they are truly amazing.

Hi Matthew,

Like you can see in my signature, I have the same combinations like you have, except for the IS133, I have the Ultrasonic. I weigh the same like you.
I still want to replace my IS122...

It's probably going to be Bjorn's small board for this year's PWA.
He was still doubting between the IS87 and the IS90. I spoke with him on Boot Dusseldorf.

Well, personally I can confirm your story about the choco fin on the Fanatics, although my experience is with bigger fin sizes.

Yes, I've never put a lot of effort in trying different fins on my IS122. I should have.

6.7 is also my preferred sail on the IS101(97). I sometimes use a 7.8 on it when the water state gets too...

Good review Matt.

Yes, about the IS101 (mine is also from 2009) I have the same feeling. Damn good.
The best board I've ever been on. And I compare with other boards like the Falcon and the...

Hi Matt,

A good summary. It corresponds to my perception of the Isonics.

I cannot wait for your review of the IS110. May I ask how much you weigh ?

Yes, I agree. Everyone is struggling a bit with this.
Also for me @87kg is the IS122 already for several years my most used board.
Only 2 sails, I use on it 7.8 & 8.8.

Hi Mark, I think that for 78 kg, the IS87 is still a relatively big board. I mean, it can already be used starting from +/- 18 knots.
Probably THE best combo would be IS80/97/117, but because mikerb...

Me too.
And it's for sure no sin to close the gap. As long as you don't exaggerate. I mean, when you feel at a certain moment that your speed "stalls", it's good to open up the sail again, let it...

Hi Shinobi,

What is your biggest sail on the 107 ?
Do you use it sometimes with a 8.6 ?

But also with us, a lot of big lakes close to the sea are getting more and more infested by weed.
Horrible.

I have no experience with the Kode and I also won't buy one, mainly because I don't like the US fin box, but
may I ask why you would like to buy a Kode 113 or 123 ?
Is it because you like...

Probably the Falcon would perform better.

Perhaps 1 last remark.
I'm only talking about my own experience.
I find that my IS101 comes close to my son's Fu111 regarding sail size. It's probably the equal OFO tail size between these...

Hi Mario,

First of all, I think that you have your knot "reference" somewhat different than mine.
I mean, in 30 knots with gusts to 35, I'm probably on a 4.0 + 83L max.

But anyway, in rough...

With your weight of 80 kg, it is much better to choose the IS87 or even the IS80 with 5.2 and 6.2 sails.

I'm 87kg and I use regularly a 6.7 on my IS87.
5.7 is my smallest sail on the IS87....
