Agree with you both Mark H and Ozi.

You DEFINITELY want to go for wood on the smaller boards (80/87 etc) as they feel much easier and forgiving under you feet, and I think carbon would be the only option I would choose in the bigger boards (117w / 127 etc) as you get much better early planing with the carbon and it feels more responsive in flatter water you are going fast...

But the 107 is so in between... you could be on an 8.6m in lightwinds or a 6.3m in 25 knots with it ... so hard to say which would be better. I'm really enjoying my carbon 107 and after years of having ugly repairs on my wood boards it's nice to be able to just do a rough paint job and sand over a repair and have it looking seamless with the carbon construction ;-)
