Default RE: which iS for 65Kg guy wanting to plane from 9 kts on?

If you are set on getting a iSonic, I would go for the iS155 with a 9.5-10m2 sail. I have an F-Type 148 and use it with a 9.8m2 V8. This, with a 70cm fin, gets me going very early. I weigh 65kg. A formula board would be better suited, I would think, but the iS155 is a sharp machine. I gave one a try in the spring and found it was a step up from my F-Type. I get my F-Type planing in 9 knots with some aggressive pumping.
