Default Thank you Carlos

Your answer is very helpful thank you very much !

Has it some sense to say that I should choose the IS101 instead of the IS111 at a slalom race with 14/15 knots ? Or is the crucial point much more windy.

Hi Auraki ,

With sustained 14/15 knots I guess you will be more comfortable on the IS101/7.5m for your 68 kg. The sweetspot of the 101 for your weight is around 16/18 knots with a 6.5/7m sail

Hi there, hi Carlos, as i weight almost the same (70k), use the same IS 101 and use almost same sail size (7.2) i agree 100 % with Carlos; i need 13 kts to start planning and in 15 kts begins the fun, my IS 101 sweetest spot: 18 kts with my Koncept 6.6
Regards Carlos from Garzon Lake, Uruguay.

Carlos said :
14-15 knots suit the 101 perfectly ok ( given the right sail ).
maybe 12-13 knots suit perfectly the 111 with half meter bigger sail.
I tried a 100 lt isonic of past years today but have to say that my impression was that the 7 meter sail was near to the maximum end. more cause the board than my ability to hold it.
I personally think that a 101 works good in higher winds with little smaller sails for my 68 kg.
To start planing in 13 knots and enjoy light to medium winds I suggest the 111 could be an easier, more comfortable machine.
Do you agree or am I wrong ?

Can you get 2 boards? I am 70Kg and I have a Isonic 111 and a Carbon Art SL 58. In your case a combo Isonic 111 + 94 (or 86) would seem ideal. You will be VERY comfortable with the 94, and you can keep the 111 for those 7-7.5 days 8-10 Knots. I am quite amazed how well the IS-111 works in light air for me ...

I had the isonic 111lt 2007,2008 and know 2009 model....
The 2009 is faster,it's planning ability is a bit better that the older ones,but the HUGE difference is it's jibe and that you are really comfortable in choppy conditions....i was amazed!!It was like if i was on a freeride board(at least)!!!
I weight 90kg and use it with a severne code red 8.3 (it's the only rig i use on this board from 12-28 knots)
