Default iSonic 110

Hi;

I am an old slalom sailor who turned freestyle but now want to do some slalom again, at least in light winds. My level is ok and the thing I loved about slalom was going into jibes full speed and come out full speed. I also love the speed and miss that in my sailing. I am 1.72 cm and 72 kilos.

I am looking at the 2013 iSonic 110. I want is as my light wind set up and want to go out in search of wind to get some good sailing before I get enough power to have fun on my 92 liters freestyle and a 5.8/5.4 sail.

Right now I am thinking about getting a Neil Pryde H2 8.2 (2 easy rotating cambers and slim mast sleeve) for the board. Reason for that is to have something that is easy handling also when I am not planing. Later I will probably ad a full on 7.8 race sail to extend the upper range and max speed.

What do you think of my choice? Will a H2 8.2 work? I am thinking 110 over 107 because I read that it is better in my typical conditions with flat water and not so much chop. I am also thinking that at my weight I will not need going bigger than the 75 cm wide 110.

If slalom turns out really fun I guess I will ad a iSonic 97 as well and smaller sails.

Hi Carve,

Yes the 110 will be perfect for your target and recommend you to get a 7.8 full racing and you will not need more Reflex IV 7.8 or Overdrive IV 7.8 who will be way better than the H2.

Hope this help

All the best

Thanks Remi!

The carbon 110 board is ordered and on its way!

So if I understand you right, do you mean that I can get a 7.8 full race sail and do not need the 8.2?

One other question: How small a race sail can I use with the board to great effect and how small fin can I use with it?

Hi Carve,

Correct no need the 8.2 at your weight and the 7.0 will be very nice too on it with 40/38.

All the best

How would a 110 be for me at 62kg in light to medium wind with a 7.0??

Hi RWW,

110 will be really your light winds board but will be better with a 7.8 but of course work well with 7.0 too.

All the best
