Default what is the biggest sail you have used with an Aero 117?

I noticed that the 2005 archives say that a 9.0 can be used with the Aero, while the 2006 archives say the Aero can be used with a 8.5. I am interest in actual experiences people have had with big sails on this board.

What is the biggest sail you have used with an Aero 117 for free riding? What size fin did you use and how did the board ride?

Default RE: what is the biggest sail you have used with an Aero 117?

Based on feedback from Dolf Daam, he has been successfully using an Aero 117 with a custom 9.0 Hot Sails Maui Superfreak. However, he has also coodinated the manufacure of a custom Vector fin to be used with the combination, so one could ask whether a 9.0 would be so viable based on the Aero's standard fins. It's understanding that the Aero came with two fins, a wave and a freeride shape. Also, he is using the setup in Maui for light wind days, so that needs to be kept in mind. Maybe Dolf will comment further.
