I'm an intermediate about 80kgs (maybe 83kgs in winter ) I have a 2011 127L and a 2010 111L which I find a great combo. The guys on new 117s are maybe a little quicker when there is enough wind but I can get out earlier on the 127L. I love being able to feel nicely powered in very light flat conditions when others are floundering! I use the 127 with the last of the Code Red 8.8s and a Reflex 7.8. Occasionally even with a 7m in mega gusty winter conditions when it goes from nothing to 20kts - just make sure the mast base is a little more forward.

The crossover to the 111 (107) is perfect, as soon as the river chop starts getting painful, I can swap down and the middle board has huge range.

I'm looking at NWF's quiver and reckon he's totally on the money. I hardly ever get to sail my smaller slalom gear comfortably but love the bigger stuff. Nice balance you've got going NWF, something for any occasion.
Cheers, Patrick
