To Phil 104
I can confirm you're right regarding the Isonics are to be compared with little rockets. That's one of biggest issue for me, knowing i have to look out for another brand, but then again, there is an option.
I Have read you also own a SB 107 wood 2011, but have you read the list from Remi for whitch boards are build with the Biax Carbon 150 technique?
My board's footstraps are popping out of the deck as if they weren't stuck in it.
And that's after sailing no more than 20 to 30 hours on it. Hope your board holds out longer than mines did
Good luck to you and hang loose,
