I owned a Sonic95 and have to agree, great range for freeesailing but limited 'competitive' range. It felt great on 7.0, but not enough 'powerful' to hold a 7.6, and I am sure a 6.6 will go already at least as well on a S85. If one decides for a single board quiver, and wants to use up to '7.something' sails, a S95 can be a very good choice; but if one decides to pair it with different sizes boards, it seems the S95 finds it difficult to find its own place. Too much overlap with wider range boards, S85/is86/87 on one side, iS101/111 on the other.
Personally I suspect that such situation is somewhat common to similar sized boards.
