Default RE: Which iSonic (94 or 101)

Hi Ian,

Still some questions about the iSonic 50.
BTW: I currently have a Missile II.

What is the influence of the difference in shape of the iSonic (compared to other serial-build speedboards) on board behaviour?
On the products page it says the tail is wider and squarer, and max width is narrower. So the tail is straighter.

Small slalom/speed boards can differ on how "free" they are on the water.
Some brands are "skitterish" ie very free but also nervous. Other boards are more locked-in. On a scale from loose to locked-in; Exocet often described very locked-in; Starboard traditionally looser but still quite locked; F2 and Fanatic very loose.
IMO this determines the degree to which you can just close your eyes and "put-the-pedal-to-the-metal" or need to be ultra-attentive.

How would you describe the most striking differences in characteristics between iSonic 50 and the other serial-produced speedboards?
