I wait 88 kg so the 97 needs 6,2 or 7,0 whith solid wind
Because they are slalom race boards? They are supposed to be sailed powered to overpowered ... not really floating around. If you are slogging, yes, a smaller sail will be easier to handle.
And then there is personal skill: at 72Kg my Is-111 feels great with my 8.0, wonderfully balanced. But that it is still a large sail for me and so I often use a 7.3 because I can handle it more easily when the wind picks up ...
