Even though I can only afford a seconhand 2016 model, I though't I'd kick off the 2918 iSonic thread with picture of the IS137 :)

Is that the best that 900 years of R&D can come up with?

I could only imagine what the boards would look like in 9 millenniums from now.thats like 20 generations of board designers past down.

I see they brought the 2016 iS134 shape back (making my 2nd hand purchase even better). Loads (possibly complicated) light wind Isonic options, 117/127/134/137 and 147/157/Ultrasonic!!

Curious how that 100cm wind isonic compares to a formula board and the ultrasonic...

That balsa board certainly looks sharp, great presentation IMO.
But the underside of the nose does look like my floor :)

Yesterday my new Isonic 107 arrived. Was a little surprised, since I found a Deep TuttleBox in my board. Based on the specification the 107 has a TuttleBox but no DeepTuttle.
Dear other 107/2018 owner, have you also a DeepTuttle box built in?

Theyve been deep tuttle for a few years now. My 2017 107 is deep tuttle, and the 2016 was also deep tuttle. The smaller size boards are tuttle.

Regular tuttle fins fit into deep tuttle boxes. Just get longer screws

Buds with 2013 isonic 107's use f4 foils in their medium depth tuttle boxes, just barely fit but tight. So tis not truely deep, nor truely standard.
My '10 Futura misses by 6mm.
