Default isonic 111

Hello US3,
do you think it is really possible to put the 9.0 sail on 111 isonic? Which fin size do I have to use then? I'm about 85kg...

Thank you.

I put my 8.2 on the 101 so I think you can put a 9.0 on the 111. I woudl try a 42 44cm fin.. something like that.

Malenki,

Kevin is the expert no doubt, but I though I would add my experience. I have the 08 111 and have used a Maui sails TR3 8.4 on the board, which works really well. I have a 9.2 but haven't tried it on the 111 since I would normally be on my Formula board in 9.2 winds. I weigh 79kg. My favorite sail with the 111 is my 7.6 (TR4)

I didn't like the Drake fins that came with the board (38 & 44) and bought a Techtonics Tomcat 42. The Drake fins are really designed for down wind slalom and have very little foil for maximum speed, plus they tend to spin out a lot (at least for me). I just free sail and the Drake fins have no power or lift for upwind or underpowered beam reaching, so I went for the Techtonics. More foil (probably a little slower), but it never spins out and has very little slippage & goes up wind very well. I use the 42 with my 6.6, 7.6 & 8.4 sails.

Thanks to both of you for your answers

Ken,
I dont like the original fins too at the same reason like you Aspecialy using them on medium/strong winds,becouse of spin out. The feeling is like they are very soft...
I am using now some serial fins from Select,but would like to have Debo or Techtonics maybe. For sure any of them will be better )
