Hi Koray,

It's a bit puzzling to hear your experience with the iS105 / RS6 7.8m combo, as mid 7m's in powered 15-20 kts are really quite a sweetspot for me with that board (in fact, powered 7.6m SSR/7.7CodeRed are close to my ideal sails on iS105). even on testing other (not production) iS protos like 95 and 90, that sail size was OK (good ok)even into winds well above 20kts and in rough chop..
(actually pretty funny ;a friend with iS105 asked me the other day "what's your favorite size for iS105?" - Answer : 7.6m. Then he asked " what about iS125??" Answer : 7.6m !!)

Cheers ~ Ian
I agree. At this point, I have had amazing days using almost any sail on my iS105, but my 2004 7.7 V8 seems to be my favorite.

But I must admit I've been pretty happy with using this board with my 2005 6.0 V8 too.

If you haven't tried a 4.8 Hucker on your iS105 give it a try. It is an amazing combination. Next opportunity, I'll get a GPS reading with this combination. I'm in the process of getting a 5.6 Hucker (and will get a 2007 6.6 this winter). The powered-up feeling you get with a Hucker seems to be a great match for the iS board design, IMHO.

I guess I'm just loving this board and wishing I could afford a iS122. ;-)
