RE: North Daytona 7.8

I've tried 460+extender in a 9.0 Daytona. Not good (you told me, Mark Then I tried it with a 510, much better.
Although your sail is much smaller, I believe the extender is a failure, if you're into any performance.

Hi Racer
As a heavy weight, the 490 will be best choice, I'v swapped my Daytonas for warps now, but I still use a 490 in the 7.6 warp instead of a 460 and its way better for my 105kg, feels really good, more draft for low-end, stiffer more stable feel and more acceleration in the gusts. I was never that keen on the "extendo" thingy and for me, the sail felt to soft and flexible, although I'm sure it must work for lighter sailors.

I read before that some people found the 460 too soft on some of the larger sails.
As a heavyweight i wonder if the 490 is a better choice. The mast will only be used on the 7.8 so want to make the best choice.

RE: North Daytona 7.8

If you use the recommended mast then 460 or 490 should work fine but a 460 with carbon extender is a good value option if your not using the 490 with a bigger sail then the 7.8
