Yes a good price but I think you'll enjoy the NCX or Turbo more due to easier handling and rigging.

After owning a 110 for the past year I have played around with various sail sizes, foot strap positions and fin combos. At 90kg the biggest sail I used on this board was a 7.8 and that felt pretty...

If you had of asked for advice before buying the board then some may have suggested you buy an 8.6 or 9m sail to use on your 131 and a bigger fin. This way you could work on your technique which will...

Unregistered, you are right that he could have gone bigger with the sail sizing on his 131 to get planning earlier but I disagree that you only need a formula board to plane in less than 10 knots.

So do you think there will be an interchangable foil that slips in and out like a fin depending on wind strength? Will the board have two or three foils? Will it be a dedicated board (obviously if it...

The 8.6 will be slower as you are using it in less wind also the fin is bigger than what you would use with a 7.8 so therefore creates more drag.

Personally I would go with the NCX as it matches the characteristics of you board better, the Gator would be a better match to say a Firemove.

In answer to your question the NCX would offer more...

Hi, yes I am or that is the plan anyway, I have only used the 7 & 7.8 on the is110 so far, the reason that I chose the 110 is to overlap with the US147 with the 8.6. Think the 7.8 is the sweet spot...

Hi, I have used the US with an 11m and a Drake 62cm fin but found it a little too powerful, you may only need a 60cm in certain makes.

If you prefer the look of the Atom then why not go for a Flare? They are surprisingly good at doing a lot of the stuff the larger Kodes do well.

The only problem with using a stiffer fin is you can lose control that a softer fin gives you. I suppose it is all a compromise and finding the right fin, sail and board combo is what we all look...
