Phil,

I would be happy to let you compare the two. Your new 111 looks lovely, shame you haven't seen it yet.

p.s. You're never 80kg

Soz Phil & Phill, two of you at the beach. See you at Weymouth.

Looking forward to hearing Remi's comments/comparision on the iS144 Vs F159 in the low-end department.

Cheers

Hi Marrk h,

After reading your long post, if you want to replace your F159 and going faster with your gps without doing competition, the iSonic 150 is for you.

This board will be more easy to use your Formula and going faster on the reach and downwind. Good for your gps.

You will plane a little later than the Formula but more an enjoy machine.

All the best

Hi Remi
Thanks for the reply. I'm not really looking to change to the easier ride of a iS150. I used to have a 2005 Free Formula wood (the one before the F-Type, 222 x 100) and preffered the crisper ride of the F158 & F159. The board would only be used in sub-15 knots (so real light winds).

I still wonder if in 10 to 15 knots, the iS144 will be faster than a F159.

Could you confirm if the iS144 will take a 64cm fin? Also, is it suitable for an 11m? It does say it will take a 64cm and 11m in the brochure but wonder if its a printing error! From the OFO tail width, I'd have thought 58cm and 10m max!

I'm suprised that the iS150 (assumming its like the F-Type bottom shape) planes up sooner than the sharper iS144, even though the iS144 is slightly narrower. Is this correct?

Soz for all the questions, but I want to make sure I get it right this year with no costly mistakes.

Many thanks
Mark

PS. I get my iS76 on Monday in time for Weymouth Speed Week, just hope its as windy as last year.

Hi Mark h,

Ok, I never put a soo big fin on this board, I am using the iSonic 133 with 10mē and SL 2 52cm in slalom. I will receave a 56cm, but really think 64cm is really too much to go fast, I prefer to get my Formula in this case.

The iSonic 133/144 are faster than Formula over 12 knots with 10mē on the reach or downwind. You can use also a 11mē on the 144.

The iSonic 150 plane earlier than the 133/144 due to the fact the board is wider in the tail and can handle bigger fins and bigger sails.

All the best
