Wow Remi, quite a big difference! I was afraid the planing was less compared to the 101 because of the lesser volume around the mast - but probably I was wrong. I've seen your name is on the 97! By the way, I've purchased the wood edition.
I will use the board with 6.7 and 7.2, but also 7.8 sometimes and 6.2 when the wind isn't good enough for my 85. The 2010 101 was great with 6.7-7.2-7.8 but felt quite big for 6.2. With more control in high winds, 6.2 should work better on the 97.
Ok, let the wind blow!
