Starboard iSonic 137 Wood

Picked up the new iSonic 137 wood yesterday. Hope to try out on Sunday. This is to replace the iS137 carbon. Whilst the carbon is super quick in light winds, I prefer the slightly softer feel of the wood version as its easier on the body if the water state picks up.

First impressions are that it is slightly heavier, feels about half a pound heavier. The wood version looks really nice in the flesh, not as “stealth like” as the carbon black beast, but nicely finished off. I think the Cobra factory has raised its game quite a bit, much lower tolerances and high quality finishes.

It will be interesting to see how speeds etc compare between the two versions. I always take a GPS out with me so it will not be difficult to compare. Will post a few comments after Iv’e had a few sessions on the new toy.
