Default RE: diffrence isonics 133 and 105 2006 and 2007

I have an iS105 (dram) and sailed it back to back with an iS101 (wood). The conditions were 4.8 conditions for me (and choppy). I noticed the iS101 was stiffer, but I expect part of this was as a result of the wood construction. I felt more of a locked-in feeling when on the iS101 too. Also, the jibes seemed a little smoother.

I did not sail the iS101 enough to note speed differences, but since I felt more in control, I expect there would have been a slight benefit to the iS101 (wood) over the iS105 (dram).

Personally, I'm happy with iS105 for now. I look forward to seeing the changes for 2008 & 2009 though!
