ISonic 122

Looking to maximize TOW & upgrade from older Carve. What's the suggested wind range for the '07 IS 122 for a 60 kg rider? Ideal sail size?

I've suffered with spinout with the stock 44cm fin as well. Finally considering an upgrade. I'm 74kg and primarily use it with an 8.2 Vapor. Not racing just enjoy fast reaching. 44cm or 46cm?
