Default Why the difference in recommended fin & sail size?

I received my Is130 today an noticed that the recommended fin and sail size as noted on the board is different from that shown on the Isonic spec page on this Website (under products). The spec page notes the largest fin as a 52 cm., while the sticker on the board shows a maximum fin size of 50 cm. Same for sail sizes. The spec page shows a maximum sail size of 10.0 meter., while the sticker on the board recommends only a 9.6 meter. Why the difference and which one is more accurate? I purchased a 10.0 meter sail when I bought the board -- here's hoping it's comfortable on the 130.

Déjà vu,

I guess the sticker on the board is wrong and belongs to an iSonic 127/137...? Ask your dealer to send you the correct sticker.

The specs shown on the website are spot on. The iSonic 130 has been designed to match perfectly with a 10.0 m2 sail to get maximal efficiency in light wind slalom for Bjorn, don't worry.

Cheers !

O.K. Thanks for the reply. I'm looking forward to trying the 10.0 m2 with the Is130.
