Default RE: Biggest sail on the FT-138

I'd go up to a 10m2, but not 10.5. Their website lists 10.0 as the biggest in the range.

I have a 9.8m2 V8 and use it on the F-Type 148. This is a great combination. I know people who have 10.6 and they've tried my board. They say that that combination is a good one. But they couldn't imagine going bigger. So, I figure that logic holds for the 10.0 as the biggest option for the 138.

I'm 65kg. I'm not sure why they sell the F-Types with such small fins because they really rock with a 68cm or 70cm formula fin. I have an R14 70 Soft for the really light wind days and a R13 68 Medium for stronger winds. Both are stellar for me on this board. I can plane up in around 7 knots. It is very rare to see someone else planing as early on my lake.
