The "Not Another iSonic Thread" Thread
Hi there, hope that got your attention.
Really it was a dirty trick because this iSonic thread will be like all the other ones out there!
But wait, don't go! I've got a few questions about the HYPERSONIC, not iSonic. Completely different.
One: Is the hypersonic an outdated design? Don't see anyone making anything like it anymore.
Two: Is it an early planing design? Because I've heard it wasn't ; just a wide-style racer with upwind and downwind vmg in mind.
Three: does it really work with that little Drake fin? What sail range? Can I put a bigger one on? Weed fin?
Four:Will it bust my ankles the moment i take her into mad chop or try to jump?
Five: Can I slog her home upwind if the wind dies? Or is it push though the water like a deflated beach ball?
Six: I've seen some videos online of people planing and ripping in 8-12 knots. Is this true or are they just lying about the wind speed?
Seven: That wood deck has a few worn spots. Repair with epoxy?
My windsurf buddy wants to sell me his Hyper so he can buy an iSonic. Otherwise I'd like to hear some compelling reasons for just getting a new iSonic as well.
