Default Sail advice for isonic 97

Hello

On the older IS101 (also 97 L of volume) I use both 6.7 and 7.8 RS:racings.
Both work super.
It's my dream combo.

I heard that the Serverne Reflex sails are a bit softer with a bit wider wind range.

thank you for the advice i heard the same things about the reflex , knowing that i can use the 7.8 with it is good i was worried of sinking to much at certain points , just one last thing how much do you weigh kg?

I'm a little bit lighter than you, 87kg.

If I have an average 16-19 knot and rather stable wind, the 7.8 works perfect, with a 40 cm fin.
If the wind is not stable enough, I use the 7.8 on my IS122 with a 43 fin.
The 6.7, I use typically in 18-22 conditions with a 34cm fin.

If you plan to use the 7.8 from 17+ knots, I wouldn't worry to much about sinking unless you have mega big lulls at your surf site.

Cheers.
