Np v8?

what about a NP V8 ? I sail a 7m and I very happy very it: great low end power and very stable in gust. how does it compare with the vapor ?

Unregistered Gotta say the Maui Sails site does list the Titan 9 at 5.6KG.
Personally I've got a V8 and that's pretty heavy too.

Vando Hi Klint The Loft Blades are also worth considering I had them for a year now and have been very happy with there performance and build quality.
My performance in Racing has improved 100% compare with last year on different sails.
Though changing to Starboard could have also contributed to that also .

But I'm changed sail sponsor so...
Let me know you email if you're interested and I'll send you some pic.
Sounds interesting, if you are located in northern Europe that is...

From where you get this weight. I have a brand new Titan in my office right now and it weights only 4.1kg. in 9.0m.

oh, sorry I forgot that you are unregistered, because you dont want to show the Neilpryde logo tattoo in your forhead. Get the real fact before you talk.

mark h Hi Klint, you wont go wrong with any of the sails you have mentioned, all pretty powerfull and all will take it when the wind fills in. Have you considered looking at the gruntier little brothers of those sails? Like the NS RAM, NP RS Slalom etc? These are getting good results on the amature slalom scene. They can take alot of wind and have more power then their full-on big brothers.But if its "full-on" you need, I'd go with the Warp, but thats just me & my personal taste!

Erik Loots Gaastra Vapor has to most grunt, however the Neilpryde RS Racing 9.0 sailed with 490 x9 (older model) I have sailed impressed me, it was way more stable than the vapor and low-end was as good.

However I couldn't afford it. And I don't my homespot is to windy
