Default For Remi: SL2 vs SL3 vs SL4???

Hi Remi!

What is your opinion about those fins and which should be better suited to what conditions on Isonic boards?
I have experience with SL2 only and it is a great fin!

Thanks
Marko

Hi Marko,

I try only the SL3 and love it in small size under 34cm in choppy condition. Unfortaly I didn't try the SL4 right now, but the comment are close to the SL2 with more speed.

SL2 still a good value.

All the best

Is there anybody else willing to contribute?
Unfortunately, Deboichet web site doesn't give enough informations; I see they have 4 lines of slalom fins right now, SL1 SL2 SL3 SL4, so there must be a reason in different characteristics; meaning if they keep 4 lines in production they must be different, not just better/worse. But they give no hint on how to choose.
Ian?

Hard to get this info firsthand...
My guess is as follows:
SL1 stiff and powerful (probably same league as Tectonics Tomcat?) good for lighter winds and upwind performance;
SL2 good overall compromise for medium winds;
SL3 for better control and rough seas (probably same league as Tectonics Falcon?);
SL4 faster and looser (probably same league as Tectonics Goldwing?).

Would be nice to have some info about how sizes can compare; guess SL2 and SL3 need 1 size (2 cms.) up from SL1, and SL4 2 sizes up?

Hi Geo,

This what I know and prefer for my iSonic 86, 111, 133 :

SL3 30, 32 & 34
SL2 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48
R16 52

The SL1 is not my favorite, found it too stiff for the iSonic, better with other board like Fanatic, etc.

All the best
