I'd keep the 2 board combo. 7.8/7.0 work best on the 107. I've tried a 8.6 on the 107, no advantage over the 7.8, just pushed the nose under when trying to get going.....

Hi Maximus, are you about the same weight as me (87kg) ?

I love the 8.8 and IS122 combination. It really rocks when there's enough wind.
I would hate to loose it, i.e. if the 8.8 would not work well with the 107.

Back then about 92/3 kg. If you use the 8.8 a lot, its a no brainer. Don't get me wrong the 8.8 will work, off the wind it will be great, but going for a cruise, your 7.8 would a better job. The 8.8 really needs the next size board up to make use of the extra power.

Belskorpio, that combo consisting of two boards is always better than try to cover up with one.

That's why I want them all three!

Yes, that's true kvda.

It's just that now my son also starts using more than 1 board, my trailer is getting overloaded.
I have at the moment 6 boards in it and that's really the maximum
Luckily I still have room on the roof top of my car, although I haven't used that for years.

Let's stick for this year still with the gear that I have, but I certainly will try to test the 107 somewhere.
Do you know when Roha/Kamperland will have its test day this year ?

Cheers.

Kvda I am using C3 Sting 2 and they feel great, could go down to a 38cm as well in really powered up 7.0 cond but then I would probably be on the 87 anyway.
I am using 87, 107 and have just purchased a 127 and an 8.6 R3. Could go bigger sail wise on the 127 but then have to buy a new boom and mast. My weight is around 80kg so the the 8.6 should be fine.
I agree with Maximus that of course you can use an 8.6/8/8 on the 107 but the sweet spot size is the 7.8 and you wont really gain much by using anything bigger.
BelSkorpio I had the 101 and sold that bought the 122/121 sold that and now 107. I think you should go 87, 107 and US147. Go the 8.8 on the 147 as the smallest sail for that board and forget about using it on the 107.
Combos 49- 4.6,5.6,6.2,SS21
87- 5.6,6.2,7.0, V32,34,S234
107- 7.0,7.8,S240,42
127- 7.8,8.6 S246,48

I've just done something similar, gone from Sonic 55w, XFire102, iSonic 121, Formula 161 to iSonic 86 + iSonic 111 + formula 161. I can now fit all boards in my station wagon. I don't have an 8.8, I go from 7.8m on 111 to 10m on 161. I'll try it for a year and see how it goes.

Thanks OZI and Macka Packa,

I appreciate your input.
Let's test the 107 somewhere and then make a final decision. I'm not in a hurry.
Actually, It's a luxury problem.

@ BelSkorpio

- You won't miss it... 107 is a MASSIVE upgrade over the 101 in my opinion ...

- I use 8.6 on my 107 with a 42cm fin. To be honest ... it does work, but it's more comfortable to use a bigger board (ie, 117w, 127 etc) as with the wider tails on the bigger boards you don't feel like you a dragging the board so much when you go to pump on the plane. So I agree with what everyone else has mentioned above!

- 6.7 will be no trouble. I've tested down to 5.6m on my 107 and it's actually sailable. 6.3m on 107 is quite a nice combo and I'll probably use that on the PWA if it's gusty and I can't get on my 80L with the 6.3m ... I would aim for a 36-38cm fin for the 6.7m .. no smaller than 36cm or else you will spin out! The 107 has a nice rockerline which keeps the nose down so when it's super windy on the 6.7 it's actually very easy to control for such a nice board ... I actually find my 107 a LOT easier in nuking conditions than my 97!
