Default RE: iSonic 105, high winds, lightweight sailor

Ha. I have at least 4 fins for each of the boards I own. I keep thinking I have enough and then I realize I don't. ;-) We had tons of sea grass in the waters we were racing in, so weed fins were the most competitive choice. I just wish I had a smaller one for the 4.8.

I used the same fin for the 4.8 as I did for the 8.0. The fin is sized for the larger sail... a Tangent Reaper 32cm Weed Fin. They are excellent fins. I've never sailed a better weed -- one that is more like a regularly shaped slalom foil. They are top notch.

I tried to buy a 26cm weed fin for use with my 4.8 & 5.6 with this board, but they didn't have any in at the moment. If I could have used a smaller fin with the 4.8, I would expect I would have been more competitive (and the board would have behaved better).
