For yourself, the best performance in <12 knots, a 130 and 9.5/10 would be ideal. Basically what you have with the 10m/FF setup. The FF's have a much wider tail than an iSonic so would get planing earlier but are not as maneouvrable in the gybes - they sail a bit more like a formula board than a slalom board. But it will get you out there ...
If you got a few more knots you could get out on the 8.6m I think. But more like 16 knots and above not 12-14 ... I find the slightly smaller sail gets planing about the same time as the bigger one but doesn't quite hold it in the lulls ...
FYI the top riders on Starboard at around 100kg (Menegatti, Van der Steen etc) were using 130 and 9.5m in winds <10 knots and were able to plane on the PWA last year...albeit with quite a bit of pumping! But possible.

heavyweights can set speed records in windsurfing, but still feel we are at a slight disadvantage in the lighter winds. You need a lot less to get going with less pumping to plane.
Keep up the good work - your input here is greatly appreciated !!!
