I have the 2009 IS101, but I cannot compare with the 2007, since I've never had or tried it.
To me it feels pretty fast.
I have my footstraps extreme backwards and my mastfoot a little further to the back c/w the recommended position.
I still consider this board as my best board I've ever had. It's a real chop killer.
The 2009 has 97L, while the 2007 had 96L of real volume.
I've compared once the IS101/2009 on the same day with the Falcon95/2009 and found not too much difference in top speed, BUT the Isonic was far superior in the chop, i.e. much more stable, which probably makes me faster with it.
