RE: Isonic vs. jp super-x
You present an interesting duality, and while there can be some obvious overlap, one can focus on the different concepts and reap the rewards of that contrast. I truly think like you about this, especially since I didn't dump the slalom boards a number of years ago when folks tended toward high speed B&J and wave sailing. Having the right kind of quiver and focus gives one the opportunity to work the right margins in accordance with the conditions. Really, this was a critical point why I hung with windsurfing and didn't become a kiter like so many of my friends. Now, with the latest light wind slalom designs, one can leverage fairly flat or moderate sea conditions with speed and style. One needs to have a varied approach and attitude.
