Hi KVDA
The 07 was a big improvement over the original 06 iS, more control etc, very nice all round model.

The 08 version was thinner (especially noticed this in the rear section) for even more control and better gybing and exit speed. At first I did not like this thinner shape as Im size 12 feet, I keep't dipping my heels in the water and generating loas spray. But after adjusting stance, its much better.

The 09 version was only slight improvement over the 08 version. It has the double wingers that slightly increase the width for earlier planing. Although this must have helped early planing a bit, I personally couldn't tell that much difference.

2007: three sessions old, so great value and still competitive and loads of fun. Should be bought for about 1/3rd of original price.

2008: Two sessions old, and best value out of the bunch. Should be around 1/2 of its original price.

2009: Similar to 08 but still around 2/3rds of original price. Newer/prettier than 08, 200ish for vanities sake???

For 09, I keep't my 08 models as it would have been a lot of bucks for a slight improvement. 2010 are looking good, stiffer and a bit more volume in the tail (yet to try one), so maybe time to change, plus the new iS94 is ver tempting, mmm!?!
