Default isonic 96 windrage?

Hello!
Please, can you give me advice about windrange of isonic 96 for 96kg;190 sailor and ideal combination with other board size. I already have 111 and 133 (08). Would 86 be better choice or...?
Tnx

If i am correct Antoine never used the 96 liter Isonic..

What he use for competition is 86 and then 101 111 and 122 133..

When I tested the 96 isonic in Maui last year I didn't liked it that much because the board felt really nervous and kinda out of control but still is really fast..

When antoine sailed he had the same opinion about the board..

I really like the 86 and 101 is also really nice board and fast..

Thanks!
I think that 86 will be better choice. And what about wind and sail range of 86. (5.5 - 6.5) and fins choice 30; 34?

Hi ,

The 86 will work with 7m as maximum, dont get me wrong the 96 will work from 7.8 but suits 7m better. 5.5 is a good change down poing for the 86, yes if u hsd no other baord it will taker smaller on flat water conditions.

The 86 is the quicker board overall, but can at time be slower from the gybe than a 96, thats why i changed mine for slalom racing.

Hope this helps

Regards

Al,
