Guys, I don't know what it is about now but it looks like the end of the iSonic era. Wood Carbon doesn't seem to bring much performance over Wood. Getting BD instead of AA was maybe not the best decision of Starboard. Anyway, thank you for the excellent ST104, I will keep it forever.

It is prevalent on Forum. If you disagree/criticise accepted wisdom (for want of a better word ; as there`s not much around on here) things get personal. Thats out of order.
I total disagree with you. In my opinion mark h original remarks are not out of order.
What is out of order is someone stating that magazines/ tests/ advertising are corrupt.
You don’t appear to have an issue with that.
Instead you try to insult me and in doing so fall foul of your own rather hypocritical standards.

Boards that cant be measured objectively; stats that are wrong; sail sizes that are wrong. Corrupt magazines/tests/advertising.Year on year claims for improved kit. List is endless !!!

Its exactly the reason why so few people are coming into the sport. They think they just have to buy so much gear !!!! Look on some posters list of "Toys" on end of posts on threads. Whats that about. ???
BS
Yes I am reading the same thread.

Hi all, I came across this old thread looking for inspiration. Retrospectively it seems that I made some very stupid comments hereabove. ISonic's are still up and running and probably here to stay for another decade. Getting BD on board was maybe one of Starboard's best decisions, and... I sold my beloved ST104 yesterday. It has been a fantastic board, certainly the best I ever had (and I had/tried many). However last year I used it only once while I sailed larger boards twenty more times due to poor wind conditions. Having to reduce my quiver before moving back to Paris I got rid of the ST (snif).

This may very well be my last post here as I no longer own any Starboard product. I really appreciated chatting with you all over the years and it has been a great experience (hope you liked it too). I wish you a wonderful year 2012, a lot of fun and the best possible wind. Ciao, Farlo

Farlo, you're always welcome here wether you're on SB or not.

Besides, it's always good to hear from the other marks as well.
We have to keep our mind wide open.

Ventis secundis tene cursum, go with the flow.

All the best for 2012.
