the mast of use?

joe_windsurfer 22nd January 2012 12:58 AM

that is one mofo of a sail !!!
giant sail - severne hardtop with 5 cams - better be 550 Severne or MS 100 % !!!
not sure 75% would do it !!
looks nice, butt is the leach tighter than normal ??
what board do you put this sail on and what conditions ie wind strengths ??
can only imagine Formula board with winds under 18 knots

I rigged with 550 Red Line and with a 530 100%C Carbon Tech (SLO custom mast) - similar view on land!
Cant imagine a 75% mast will work properly (wrinkles up the boom in front section)
The leach is opening a lot, starting at the boom constantly up to the top (zero outhaul tension, compared to Reflex I)
Board: SB167wide
I am 92kg/184cm, so hope being competitive from 7knots up.

joe_windsurfer 22nd January 2012 01:33 PM

from 7 knots up until what wind speed ??
when does such a sail become "unmanage-able" ??/overpowered

hellova board too - wow wow and wow
when you have a video - we would all love to see it
especially fully powered up and ripping !!!!

hi pfaffi,
i saw the photos of reflex III and is just great!!what is the mast tha you have trim the reflex III 12m2 ???

pfaffi 26th January 2012 09:23 AM

Hi Costazzz!
I rigged the Reflex III 12.0 on both, a Severne red Line 550 and a Carbon tech 530 with 40cm Base Extender. Same view and shape.
Carbon rech is a Slovenian Custom mast producer who is supporting some PWA racers. This mast are more temperature stable.
