Hi Roger:
What do you think about Isonic 135 for an intermediate with 7.5 and 9.5 freerace sails? It,s an easy board?. Thanks.

Hi JGue,
I've never sailed the '06 Isonic 135 personally.
So, I can only comment from my experiences with the '06 Isonic
115 and 105, as well as the '07 Isonic 145/122/101.
I've found them all to be quite easy to learn and you can easily get
your gear all tweaked to give very good speeds.
They jibe significantly better than I originally anticipated.
So, yes, the '06 Iosnic 135 could be a great board for you.
A little more info on your wind and sea conditions would really define
If you sail on farily flat water, then the Isonic can be wickedly fast and the faster you go the easier things get.
If you have more chop and rougher conditions, the Isonic can still be good, but I'd look at the S-Types if you really want the most comfort and speed.
Hope this helps,

What about ??06 Isonic 125? The dealer has one at really good price. Easy to sail (compare to hipersonic)? Uphaul? Possible to sail with 9.5?
Thank you

Hello JGue,
The '06 Isonic 125 should be even better than the 135 as I think it will have a little better range on the top end (better over the chop).
Not sure how well it will do with a 9.5 m2 rig, but I had no problems with the '07 Isonic 122 with an 8.5 m2 Race sail and 32 cm Lessacher Duo weed fin while I was in Bonaire. As I said, the 8.5/Is 122 was pretty much the planing champ amoung recreational sailors.
Should be a geat value, and if it really does not do well with the 9.5 m2 you could drop back to a 9.0 m2 and I think that would be a very "balanced"combination. Add a slightly larger (4-6 cm) fin and you sould have a very easy (compared to the HS 125) to sail board that planes early, goes fast, and has a very wide range of use (down to 5.5 or 6.0 I'd think.
Hope this helps,
