Try the 101 again in 18+ conditions and then you know what this board is capable of. The 125 is ok for full powered up slalom with 8.4-7.8 in lower wind conditions. It glides through lulls efficiently, pointing high, great average speed on a slalom course. In that conditions the 101 is too small .
Untill... the wind picks up, I change the 125 for the 101 while still keeping the 7.8 and it goes like a beast. With even more wind I change to 7.0 MKIII and 101: keep the adrenalin antiserum near by!!!
( I thought of changing the 125 for the 121 also, but a little bird told me the 2011 line-up will be something special, so i decided to wait
