This was discussed in quite some lengths last year wen te wood carbon boards were released and the answer is that wood Slalom boards simply performed better in tests which was enough argument for not offering wood carbon slalom boards for 09. And particularly the smaller iSonics that are narrower with less surface area would not become that much lighter either and since these are more high wind oriented the smoothness of the wood construction is hard to beat.. But naturally it is a possibility that wood carbon version of some slalom boards could appear in the future which would leave it to the customers to decide if they would like the smoother wood version or the stiffer carbon.
