I use IS101/NP RSS MK3 7.0/ C3 Venom 36cm. Nice combo.

I can jump from my IS 145/ NP RSS MK3 9.5 to my IS86/ NP RSS MK3 6.2 in non racing conditions then jump to my Kode 74/ NP Zone 4.7.

I weigh 70kg.

Today I sailed the 122 with my 7.0 stealth. Very very fast and controled. High upwind.
I hoped for 8,2 weather. but dit not regret I tried this set today. All my doubts are gone.
Next week I get the 101.

Hi Berg.
Great...
I got my 7.0 Tushingham Lightning two days ago and have already blasted it a lot on the 122. No problem at all. It's seriousely fast and controlled. Maybe only 95% race winning, but to me it's great...

Per,

I do not have the 101 yet. That is why I tried the 122 with the 7.0. It was realy flying upwind. I never sailed that angle. I used a select 41 RS fin and later tried the 37 select so7. What is your biggest sail on the 122?

Hi Berg.
I sail my122 with a 8.5 as biggest. It can take more, but I'm 95 kgs and the board is actually only around 114 litres so with a heavier rig it becomes a sinker and I may as well go for my formula. I use a 46 fin for my 8.5 when blasting and a 40 fin for maxed speed even with 8.5. Anyway the board points highest when I am max powered with 7.0 and 40 fin. An iSonic needs power and speed to really work.
I'm also considering the 101, but I think it will sink too much for me. At my local spot the wind can drop quite fast and I doubt the 101 will carry me home in 4 knots of wind.
Do you measure your speed with GPS. I've been on +30 knots on mine, but actually that's not more than I did on my S-type 115 or carve 111/145. I don't think the 122 is faster on max speed than other boards, but its average speed, pointing and especially acceleration is excellent.

;-)

If you are thinking about replacing your 8.2, an iS122 will easily carry more, I use 9.0 @ 85 kilos. Think about 8.5-9.0 depending on the mast you want to use, etc. (a 9.0 will usually require a 520 mast).

Just to let you know that is122 is super competitive in short leg slalom racing (figure of 8).

We had some racing this weekend and I was strugling most of time with my 8.2/122 combo in super gusty winds and I could not score better then 2nd place.
Then the wind picked up enough for 6.7 (still gusty) and I got two 1st places without to much effort! Very fast combo for short leg slalom racing (it was about 400m between marks).

Good to hear. I now have more experience with the 122 and my 7.0 m2. I also have the isonic 101 bur hardly using it. The 7.0 is indeed very good on the 122. What fin do you use with your 6,7 on the 122?

Like to hear

I like to say ist; I am surfing for 25 years now and never had a board better than the 122. Upwind and downwind. I sailed it on lake Garda with 7.0 in rough water. Total control with 40 cm select fin

Hi Berg,

I use deboichet sl4 42cm (hard) and sl2 37cm. Both are good in medium 6.7 conditions but I found sl4 42 faster and more competitive. I had the (wrong) feeling that I am faster with 37, but after testing with gps, 42 was clearly better.

I agree about the board! It is fantastic!

Cheers
