Hi KA 43,

I sailed both boards, in fact I tried the Falcon 111 before purchasing my IS 111. Both boards performs very well in the 12-18 knots winds, but hte ISonic have much more control above that range, this means that you can manage 30+ knots gusts without any problem under moderate chopp conditions while FalconĀ“s guys are putting their lives under serious risk, performing cute maneuvers like catapults, endless spinouts etc.
As regards the sail size I tried the 9.0 code red with the 42 cm fin and no problem, things are getting hotter when you rig an 8.4 (NP RS6 ) and the 42/36 fin, and the board is a dream with my code red 7.7.

I hope this will help you take your decission

Best regards

The chassis:
