I'm in love with the board.
The range 14-25 knots is fantastic

Good wind

Hi
Going to change 131 to 117wide.
Would reflex 8.6 or the new 9.2 be the optimal sail for the board. ( every board has one sail size that is perfect

Hi Fin66,

The Reflex 8.6 is simply the best sail for this board, enjoy it.

All the best

Hi SS!
Since two weeks I have my 117W next to my 111.
The 117W planes a lot earlier than the 111 with Reflex 8.6 and likes jibes and downwind.
It carries my weight easily and I can draw my 8.6
I use a S1 in 45.5cm and in 43.5cm, the 47.5cm is to big.

Of course in lighter winds and reaching the 131 is a bit faster in my weight class. Maybe not in yours.

hallo Remi and Pfaffi (and all the people as well),
I'm gonna racing my 2011 slalom main event in Garda lake.
Currently own 2010 IS 131 and 111 which basically is the most used kit in my last 4 season.As I think the boards are still super competitive I was thinking to hold on with them (hoping construction doesn't sucks!) AND add another board in between.
In fact if I'm sure on the fresh water the WC IS 111 is a rocket with the 8,6 (on demand) I'm not sure that it's a usefull combo on the lake.
As well as from my experience the 131 (or 127) can be a nightmare down to Ponale chop if it really blows and I strongly believe a narrower and thinnier board should be easier and faster.
Ask for your opinion and what I should select (117w or 117) in order to register only 2 board for the Event.
Plus I'd like to hear from Pfaffi if he tested the 117w on the lake and what was his feeling.

thx

Go for 117w and I bet you will never miss again your 111 and 131 once you start using it.
I tested 117w upto 30 kts,no problem.I liked it even better than IS 101 at 30 kts.
