FYI, here are some close up pics of the 09 Isonic 111, looks good.

Just a quick question on fins, are the supplied Drake fins OK or will I see a substantial performance increase with replacement fins?

Hi, and thanks for some serious good advise, Ken, Chris and Sieger. It seems that everybody recomend the 101 and I guess you are right. It`s probably a bit small for me for starters (the 111 would be safer/easyer), but as soon I have got uset to a 101 it will probably be a better choise for me to cover some medium to hard wind slalom as a supplement to Formula sailing.

I have a friend that has two Severne Code Red-07 sails of 6,7 and 8,3kvm for sale. Maybe they could go well with the 101 for me (86 kg)?

But then again- the 111 gets a really good review in Plamchemag: "Its excellent overall speed in all tacks and all conditions is what makes it rewarding on a race course. It’s extremely versatile and has the ability to pull ahead of the game no matter what the conditions" (from the testpage).

I've only had the new Isonic 111 on the water for a few hours and so far I'm loving it. It's been very quick to dial in and it's really improved my plane through gybes.

The other outstanding feature is the plush ride through chop. The harder you push it the more it locks into a very stable ride. I had it out in 20-25kts the other day with a 7.8m and even though I was at the limit with the sail the whole set up was nicely behaved.
