Default 2009 iSonic 86 vs 94

Hi Kevin,
I've been thinking of buying iSonic 94 or 86. I have Tabou Manta 108L. and 6.5 m GTX (and 5.6m Remedy). I'm 66 kg and I surf in Alacati. You know the conditions here very well I watched you this year when you came for PWA. My worry is windy days in Alacati is not so often. Generally 18-22 knots. We dont see 27-30 knots too much. What would you suggest for 18-20-22 knots?
Thanks...

I also would like get your opinion about fins. I read at the forums that drake fins are not so good for the iSonic.

For Alcati I would go with the 94. A bit bigger as it is pretty flat there. I think it will help you out if you get some debiochet fins. They are really good.

Default Which fin for is94

Hi Kevin,
I know that iSonic 94 comes with drake 340. Which fin should I buy for use with 5.6 m. Would 32cm (Deboichet sl4) be allright?

Thanks,
Considering my light weight, I think it would be better to go with SL4 30 cm.

I've just read from the ask our team forum that "the SL5 line for the iSonic 87 are really amaising..." What is the difference between sl4 and sl5? and I'm a little bit confused about the size. For my weight and 5.6 m wouldn't 30 cm be better? Thnx..
