I would just like to second what PeterCee said.

I have had a full set of Ezzy Infinity sails since 2006. The 7.5, on an Ezzy skinny mast, and my Futura 111 is my light wind rig [ at 65 kg ]. In the often light winds here in the Eastern Caribbean the 7.5 has had the most use. Actually I have completely worn out the first one and now have a new one.
I don't really know how to describe it myself other then to aggree with PeterCee, "Light and powerful with easy handling"

RadiantX From Loft there is also the Switchblade which seems to be fairly compatible with the Ezzy RDM's.

Being a Ezzy user myself since 2007 I have been extremely happy with my choice. I also agree that the Infinity and even the newer Freerides have a very impressive bottom end. The 2009/2010 sails feel very nice, slightly lighter with no compromise on wind range.

Unregistered if you are lacking low end on an infinity you are using way too much downhaul. I use infinities on a raceboard and set to minimal downhaul and I use the upper outhaul eyelet. Trim with the outhaul, more outhaul for upwind and losen it up for downwind (variable outhaul is worth the fidgeting) by trimming this way you keep a lot of power higher up in the luff where it really gives you grunt in the lighter conditions. on the slalom board I find the infinity keeps up with "race" sails quite well and bang for buck ezzy delivers big time.

James My buddy is an Ezzy rep, and I've ridden his 2007 6.5 infinity rigged on the Ezzy mast. It was rigged very full with a tight leech for excellent low-end power. The low end was definitely better than my own Ezzy 6.6 from 2003, so I think Ezzy sails are now working really well at both the low and high end, and should be a safe bet for you.

Unregistered Thanks for all the advice, I think I'll have to have another look at the Ezzy 7.5 Infinity. I'll try beg a ride off someone at the beach before I put down any cash.

Ola_H If its a 460 NoLimitz made Ezzy mast, I would be a big careful getting other sails than Ezzy to it. I was about to recommend the Hot Speed Demon no cam sail (which is at last fast enough to win the italian slalom championships in competetion with all well known cam sails...) but I'm a bit unsure about the mast fit.

I believe the NL made Ezzys are a bit softer in the mid part. Then they should maybe match up with some of the Gaastra sails. But definitely try the sail on your mast before buying.

Unregistered I'd rather economize on the board than on the mast/sail fit... Get a cheaper used board (like a carve) and make sure that your rig is tight, and that includes a stiff boom.

steveC Bruce is in a dilemma that many find themselves in these days. He wants to leverage off a perfectly good mast, but what sails will work on it? Unfortunately, from sail brand to sail brand the character and bend curves of recommended masts can vary enough that compatibility and performance can sometimes suffer. Really, to get the most of any new kit, the sail should be matched with the recommended mast.

On the upside, Bruce can just stick with Ezzys and have proper compatibility and save some money. Are the Ezzys the best match with the iS111? Probably not, because the full on racing sail design is the most likely contender for that slot. Yet personally, I'm a big believer in matching camless sails with my slalom equipment because I like the way they rig and jibe, and if I might be losing the extreme high end stability or support through the lulls, I'm still quite satisfied. Since Bruce is focusing on a freerace sail as his prime target, something in the Ezzy line should readily meet his goals.

windsurferdagg I checked and windwing does make the Hammer RDM sail, designed for RDM's. I would check it out, usually the hammers have very deep draft and good grunt low end as well as being very fast and I think full x ply and stylish looking

Mike T Hi Bruce, I agree with Peter that the Ezzy Infinity is a great sail for freeride slalom sailing. I have an 2005 Ezzy Infinity 6.6Sqm sail that is a great match with my older narrow slalom board (Berky custom CR288 ). The sail has lots of power and great top end and lots of control when over powered. The new sails work well with the RDM Ezzy because you can change the size of the cambers that come with the sail. Try one you will be surprised at how nice they are to rig and sail. Good luck and fair winds! Mike T
