Hi Erik,

If you are keepingthe iS150 and looking to space a well sized quiver around from that, you can consider :

iS150 / iS111 / iS96

A slightly more adventourous option (more "small board focus") would be

iS150 / iS101 / iS86

..this one opens the max gap between the light wind 150 and intermediate 101 but really gives a great performance range from powered mid range and above.

Or for more wide ranging performance in mid range while still retain some killer top end

iS150 / iS111 / iS86

If you are NOT racing in a true races, you may also want to consider a Futura as a choice for the hi wind board. OK, not as hardcore image but across the chop when well powered, Fu93 might just be a bit more deadly - and easier - for the average sport rider.

Cheers ~ Ian

Default sail size for isonic 86

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the replay,

is it posible to sail the 6.8 warp on the 86 alongside the 5,8 warp

is the 6.8 not to big?

Hi erik,

I use most of the time the Code Red 6,7 on the iSonic 86 and is really excellent so your 6,8 must be good also.

All the best

hi remi (ian)

maybe a bit off the original topic, but which fin do you use with the 6.7 and the isonic86?

how would you rate the original drake 34 reg. speed (when on let's say 6.7)?
don't you find the original 34 fin a bit too big for that board (considering the amount of lift it has compared to sl2)?

i am a 75 kg sailor trying to find the best fin for fig 8 slalom racing in ca 15-25 kn wind...? any suggestions?

cheers v.
