For me (180cm@88kg) the 130,107&87 is the way to go because our Japanese race series has many gusty spots with larger wind holes close to the beach. On top of that, with a couple of other sailors around and not have the great pumping techique like the pros, I have no other option than the 130 in lighter winds.
BUT, this is only for racing, which is the targe for the iSonic. If I wouldn't be racing, I would be on the 117, hands down. A perfect size board with with much more control. However, in this case, the Futura would be a worth option as well.
Hence I do recommend you to go BIG, or go home (Saying from Kevin Prittchard) or check if you will participate in races with unstable winds.
Just my two cents.
Hi Shinobi,

What is your biggest sail on the 107 ?
Do you use it sometimes with a 8.6 ?
IS87 / IS101 / RRD114 / US147
