Please found bellow the photos, it is not a "easy up haul" but very easy to use without back painfull, you use only your weight to up haul the sail.
All the best

I also use the Easyuphaul on my 7.5/waist harness combo. I didn't include the info previously because I thought that most people wanted the info when they used BIG sails.
I don't use a waist harness on my 8.5/9.8 sails, so can't comment.
Hope this helps.

i do know it is not a "tool" :-)
someone called it as such and thought it redundant to say easyuphaul uphaul
am using a 10.0 with a luff of 536 on a 520/100% mast
as a race type sail with double luff it weighs 7.5 kilos !!
so, 30 to 40 dollars versus a sore back ?
sounds like an easy decision
i have had issues in big winds with 8.5 already, so ....
will try without, but intend to investigate availability n cost here
thank you all very much !!!!

The new Race Up Haul from Star-Board help a lot to reduce back painfull, no need anymore to stress your back but jsut use your weight to up haul the sail.

It certainly works from not being able to uphaul when the luff sleeve is full with water, and waves conspiring to keep the whole lot down there, to now being able to float the sail and steer the whole plot while getting it together for the next run and splash! Highly recommended.|

|vikingsail||Have them on all my booms. I have a back issue and when I have to uphaul it helps me keep my back straight by using my weight instead of bending over and using my muscles.|

I home made one by attaching an additional piece of uphaul rope about 2/3 down the normal uphaul. On this extension I tied a stainless steel loop, same sort of diameter as a tennis ball. With a bit of height adjustment I've gotten it about right.
Because I'm using it on a smaller, yet heave, race sail, 5.8 the time for which I can sit back once hooked in to pull up is slightly limited. But it feels really good just pulling on your harness to get the sail out of the water/empty the luff sleeve.
I think official ones are going for 30-40 USD so I decided to build one to give it a go. Definitely worth while on a bigger sail and I can't wait to use it for my 7.5 (also cambered and heavy).
