I think you may be asking a bit much of the Atom in any size!! What was wrong with the 96 FSW? At your weight that should be perfect for 5.5, and would normally be a bit big for 4.7. If however the...

What sort of windspeeds are you talking about? My view overall is that there a law of diminishing returns when you start to go big in order to gain some early planning performance. So for example, I...

Thanks both. I have a 39 Select Slam ( not XL) already so plan to try that and I have just bought a 40 Drake R2R DW which I am hoping will do the trick ( slightly bigger than your recommendation Remi...

Hi,
don't know if you have had the chance to experiment yet to resolve the issue but I have experienced the same using Isonics and lowering the boom a small amount was enough to resolve the issue....

Is 110 ( 2013) first outing

I had the chance to try out my new Is 110 yesterday. I teamed it with a 7m North RAM and 41cm Select S1 fin. The conditions initially were bft4/5 but built to bft5/6 and the water was pretty...

I agree the 133 is no fun if you are not planning.......you have to watch the nose to ensure it does not pearl and it has little directional stability...BUT...I have rarely found myself in that...

I think I can answer that for you cos Remi has commented on this subject before. The 110 is 110. Yes the 122 I had was 114 but it was a 2008 board. From what I can see, comparing the volumes as...

Hi mate,
there is a big difference between the board/sail sizes used for slalom racing..usually by guys heavier than you, and recreational sailing. I have used the 133 ( and now 127) a lot for the...

Hi Matt,

I have changed my 2009 133 for a 2013 127....hoping it is just as good. Your observations are interesting. Yes the 52 fin is much too big. I use a 49 select most of the time changing to a...

Yes I have opted for the 110 as well but no chance to try it yet. Just looking over it however I am confident it will do everything the 122 did and more. Afer all my 122 was only 114 litres and the...

Fin for is 133

I can only comment on the 133........just bought the 110 but no chance to try it yet!

I found the 52 Drake OK in flat water and with a 8.5. It pins the board very flat in the water so if...

The Isonic 122 option is the best................I assume it is the 122 at 75 cm wide...it will partner your 7.5 nicely. your other sails are too small for light/medium winds though. Probably best to...

First off, if you can get a 133 in good condition that is a no brainer. They are fast and will cover all the light wind range. don't worry about rougher water...if it is properly trimmed it can cope...

Thanks all for your suggestions. I think I am going to go for the 110 with the full realisation that once I get to use it I may then find it best to sell the 107 and get a 87 or similar.

@Deja Vu...are you talking about the 80cm wide 117?...........surely that would be too close to my 127? That's why I am looking at the 110 at 75cm wide or ( if I can find one) a 2012 117 ( 75cm). ...
