RE: iSonic 111
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 Falcon´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
