View Full Version : Severne Reflex II Batten broken

19th May 2012, 11:34 AM
Hey guys, (and girls!)

Last september at UK's NWF someone at the night party managed to stand on my Reflex and the 2nd to top batten has been snapped :mad: . I was wondering if I could either swap any old batten that fits (from an old NP or Gaastra sail), out with the broken one, or will I have to buy a new one from Severne?

Cheers, Jamie. :)

Hi Jamie,

No idea how anyone would be partying so hard @ night during NWF ;)
(well I guess once you've been there - or seen the videos - it gets a bit more logical ??)

Anyway....a "similar" batten will be more functional than no batten or a broken one.
And sailing with a marginal one better than not sailing... ;)

While there's no requirement to replace the batten with a genuine one, the Reflex's are a pretty dialled in sail, built to highest performance with very tight tolerances. Keeping the sail as close to original in terms of shape/twist etc is obviously preferable... Severne does support the order/supply of spare parts for all the race sails as a service item, so the original item could/can be obtained thru the Severne Dealer network if required/desired etc.

Cheers ~ Ian
