Hi Hermes
If you saw the iS76 and iS86 side by side, first thing you'd notice is that the iS76 rocker line is more suited to rough seas (by slalom standards). This rocker line also means its more fun to jibe and more versatile for "real world" conditions for light weight (even for a heavy weight) CW iS86. Please dont mis-understand me, the iS86 is favourit amonst pro's and truly rocks, but the iS76 is just that bit more relaxed

As Mark points out, both are very good jibers by slalom standards but the iS76 is really exceptional. An amazing jiber. I often do carving 360s and such things on that board. The harder you push it and the more forward rail you engage, the better is carves.

so , you think that there is a limit for choosing is76... if you have perfect contitions , without lulls and you are under 75 kg.. If someone have more weight , 80kg or more, its better to choise is86..(easy planing) my bigest ail is 6.6 and next is 5.8..
