That's why I fear that the narrower tail of the 110 would lack upwind angle in marginal conditions.

Hi Remi, thanks for the answer.

two more questions

compared to the the 122, does the 110 need a smaller fin than because it "flies" easier above the water?

iSonic 110 vs iSonic 122

Hi Remi,
I am quite attracted to the 110 as replacement to my 122 2009.
I guess it will be an improvement in all aspects, except maybe upwind angle.
Is that right?

may be last question was too easy...

I'll try with a new one.

Hi Pfaffi,

as far as I read on the Deboichet site the stiffness choice is available only for R16 formula fins, not for the R16sl slalom fins (<60cm).
Am I wrong?

what does it do, more lift?

I guess iSonic 122 2009 doesn't have any concave in the front just like the 117?

Hi Remi,

what is the mono concave there for?

Is that the main reason why you say 117 is more for high wind and the 117wide for light wind (except width)?

isonics, flat vee and concaves

I have noticed that the group of iSonics for light to medium wind (127, 117 wide, 117, 107) all have "Flat Vee to Mono/Double Concave to Flat Vee" except the 117 which is all flat vee.
Why?

Hi Roger,

so, roughly summarizing:

fin slot width (mm) = 15.875 -0.000 / + ?

What I wanted to say: "the detailed fin head drawing is not so useful", without the detailed drawing of the slot on the board (fin box).

Hi Roger,

thanks for the fast answer, but I think now I am more confused.
the fin head width is 0.6160"-0.6200", or 0.620" -0.624" like you wrote above in Feb. 2009?

From what you say it seems...

Hi Roger,

do you also know what the dimensions of the fin box should be?

Especially the width of the box (dimension around 15.816.0 mm), should how much wider than the fin head?

Chris, I think it is the boom too high (too much lift of the board from the sail?). All the other things you suggest I am already aware of, so it must be that one.

hi Morten,

I have the same question in my mind (111 or 122?) but I weigh 66kg and have also a 90liter board.
If I were 85kg like you I guess I would go definitely for 122 as my bigger board....
