Hey Pfaffi

Yes you're probably right with regard to slalom competitions and wrt what pro racers use.
However, in real world scenarios, things are a bit different. For example I don't race, I don't have many boards (I jump straight from iS122 to Kombat86) and I want to cover as much wind range as possible. iSonics are marketed (with good reason) as wide range boards, and many sailors use that to the max. You'll admit that iS122 + 8-9m sails + 45-49 fins doesn't sound like much. In fact it sounds like dsb's from the past.
Racers have the luxury of choosing exactly the right gear within tight margins. But for the rest of us, you'll see many posts from Ian, Remi and other team members confirming my thoughts.

Have fun

Edit: Thinking again about this I actually agree with your point of view, mine is just a bit different. Put another way, what board would you choose for racing with 7.3 to 9.0? (if there's only one board allowed) I'm very happy about my choice ;-)

Hi Nonopr,

I will recomend you the SL4 44cm for the 9,2m˛, 42cm for the 8,4 and 40cm for the 7,6.

But to save money you can do 44 to 40cm.

Hope this can help

All the best

Remi, Just what I figure. Thanks I have already the 42 and I buying 40cm and 44 today.
No one ever answer the question about the box, Is it a deep or a regular tuttle box. The website says is a deep tuttle but all team riders are using regular tuttle fin base.
Let me know,

But it's ok with the simple one.

All the best

Remi: Thanks. The board arrive yesterday. Yeah it looks deep Tuttle and the fins that come with the board are not.. I spoke to Jasper Orth and he says that he use the board with Regular no problem. The board comes with really long screws so I guess I can use my other fins I already got from my other iSonic and also try some other fins I got with deep Tuttle in my quiver for the hell of it. You never know I might have a rocket ship hiding in a closet.

Do you think the sizes I have selected to ride this board are good and competitive 7,6. 8,4 and 9,2 with 40, 42, 44 cm Canefire from vector fins. Have you ever been here in Puerto Rico. Will be great to have you visit and give us a day of lessons for a free stay???? To us the starboard riders here

Hi Nonopr,

I came already 3 times in Puerto Rico and thanks for your proposal, we never know what will happen in the future.

For the Vector fins better to ask to Jesper, we are testing the boards for devellopment on Deboichet, so I can give you all information for the better one in there range for any iSonic. This size work great for SL4.

All the best

Hi Screamer!
(Put another way, what board would you choose for racing with 7.3 to 9.0? (if there's only one board allowed):
Clear for me, for 9,0 I would use the iS133 because there is big difference in starting planing limit compared to iS122. If thats not the point the iS122 is the better if you like to use a 7,3 too.

We used to 133l Isonic Duo Rake 30° fins in 100% carbon. The biggest is 35cm (vertical)
is diagonal 5-6cm longer. No spin outs, downwind very fast, upwind good and no joke:
9,5m˛ no problem. I use the rake 30 fins in Strand Horst Netherland. If you make speed,
is weed no problem. 22cm 25cm 28cm 32cm 35cm. Wolfgang
