Obviously the Dream Team slalom sailors have tested them in development, but as for the production boards, I think they are only just starting to ship.

Hi Guys Ive had the IS86 for a few weeks peak speed so far 38knots with venom 28.
The board feels great on he water havnt found its limit yet just goes faster the more wind there is. Very easy board to control thumbs up from me.

My IS122 and IS39 turned up yesterday. I got the IS122 out today in light winds 10-14 with a 8.5 Drake 46, the board felt sweet very quick on the plane very nice around the gybes for a big board very easy board to ride.
Hopefuly I get on the IS49 soon.

Check out this session from Chris Dimond this week on the IS49 peak of 45nots thats flying

Hey all

I have sailed my 2009 I122 about 3 times now with drake 46cm/8.4 RSR. This board really flies, have done 31 knots so far on this combo. It planes up effortlessly, points as high as the Hypers did, and is faster upwind. It really pulls away in the gusts. IMHO it does everything its meant to do, and as an added bonus, its way easier to sail than expected. What is unexpected is its ability to carry speed through patching lightwind conditions.

So well done SB.

By the way the supplied fins are great!
