I have not tried the 115 but I own the 105L .
It planes up very quick , is reasonably fast (fast enough for me)
and turns great , it slogs nice when the wind dies (I'm 195 lbs.)
The smallest sail I've run was a 3.7 with a 9.5 wave fin
The biggest was a 6.3 with the 32 stock fin.
I have ridden the 95L and the 125L also and liked them both so I would
guest the 115 would be the same.
Hope this helps.
Mike

Sailing upwind and spin out depends on the fin. The stock 32 tabou fin
spun out until
I wet sanded the raised tabou lettering on it with 400 grit sandpaper ,
after that it was fine.
Yes I would buy the 105L if I had to do it again. Great board that
suits my local sailing sight.

I will vouch for the durability of these boards. I bought a Tabou Rocket 59
last year. That's the 95 liter board. Lots of sailors in my area sail these
boards by word of mouth. This board has held up much better than my JP did.
As far as the 115, I can't say.
