Well, I've now had 3 or 4 sails on a borrowed 295 (mainly using my RS slalom mk iv 7.8) in light winds and have pretty much convinced myself to order one! Just waiting on a friend from SurfFX to come back from hols.
Am still undecided about whether or not I'll get a rig with it yet though. Going to try a borrowed 8.5 Severne raceboard sail on the board that I've been using to see what it's like - should be similar to the 8.5 that Starboard sell. Am leaning towards the 7.5 though, which I think would be plenty big enough for me at 63kg.
