Thanks for the responses guy. Very helpful.
The board will be mainly used in lighter conditions, say 14 - 18 knts, but i want to be able to sail comfortably when it gusts up to 20+ knts and not have to fight it.
How much of a sinker is the 111 for the inevitable lulls ?
The sails i'll be using are NP RX1s 7.0 and 8.0 and a KA Koncept 6.6 - yes the NPs are old but they are in new condition and won't be replaced until they die.
Davide - i like the description of the 111 having like 2 gears. Sounds like what i'm after.
