Default Isonic W58 as highwind slalom and Is 110 with 9.5

Hi !
Got Isonic 97 and 127carbon from 2011, just got the Is 110 2013 carbon, only tried it once with a 7.9 and its amazing. Really fast and gybes a lot better than the 127.
Was thinking of selling the 97 and get a W58 for slalom and gps speed with 7.9 and 6.7 sails or i should sell the 127 and use the 9.5 on the 110?

Is the w58 as controllable as the 97 in heavy chop and waves when powered on a 6.7?

I'm 85kg and has 9.5 7.9 6.7 and 6.0 vapors i sail in costal conditions with chop and almost always with weed fins.

Weed fins are not good for big boards and sails. So i loose a lot of lightwind performance on the 127.


Thanks

Hi Glen

Better to sell your 9.5 and buy a 8.6 and that will be the perfect combo for the 110.
yes the W58 is more contrôlable than the 97 but it's not perfect for slalom due to the small tail, the board will be slow out of the jibe compare to iSonic 87.
hope this help
All the best

+1 on Remi's comments with the 110 + 9.5m combo. The 8.6 is really perfect for this board and you can get planing pretty early with it!

Steve Allen used the 9.2m a little with the 110 this year but said it's slow to accelerate. I tried the 9.2m and to me it just sinks the board a bit too much, so it was quicker to get on the plane with the 8.6m.
