Slalom DW = For pure down slalom speed and control, best in powered to overpowered conditions.

Slalom 8 = For figure of eight slalom courses, good overall down wind and up wind abilities, best for busy marks where lots of dirty air from other racers, provides power for acceleration to get away from the mark.

Race = for course racing where there are big up wind legs, ideal for light winds too.

For recreational sailing, the DW is favoured for gps style sailing as it is the fastest down wind . The slalom 8 for all round sailing especial in gusty conditions. The race is best for very light wind conditions and big sails and boards.

Worth noting that some Starboard-sposored racers (e.g. Taty Frans) use the Slalom Downwind in PWA events; I am not aware of any of them using the Slalom 8. Overall, the Slalom Downwind is considered as much better than the Slalom 8.
On iSonics, Starboard recommend the Race Ready-to-Race only on the iSonic 130. They sell the Ultra Sonic with a 58 Race Ready-to-Race.
