Hi NIKOS-GR,

If you look for something very similar to your carve, the Futura will the choice with bit more speed.

If you look for the ultimate machine in slalom in light wind, go for the iSonic 150, she will work perfectly particulary with your bigger sail. You can also increase also his performances with even a bigger sail.

Hope this help

All the best

Hi NIKOS-GR,

The iSonic will plane earlier. For the sail their is plenty sails who work perfectly on it. Personaly I try the 9,8 RSR and the Code Red 10mē.

All the best

Nikos,

Is your new sail gonna replace your actual 9.6 sail or is it in addition to your 9.6 ? Are you keeping the Carve 162 and 9.6 sail or not ?

For your 94 kg and 8-12 knots wind range, I'd like to suggest you an 11.0 m2 sail to match your iSonic 150. The Overdrive 11.0 would be great if you want more power in the lower wind range; Code Red 11.0 for greater speed, stability and power in the upper wind range.

Cheers !

JM
