RE: Code Red R2
I've tried the 8.3 and the 6.7. The're much better than last year, wich I didn't like that much.
The R2 has very good camber rotation, stability and speed. As a bonus, they look really great.

RE: Code Red R2
I tried the the 6.7 on 2007 s-type 104 wood a few times, and decided to buy the s-type afterwards.
and the 8.3 on isonic 122 wood. (me: 1.90 m, 85 kg)
I was racing in choppy conditions on a februari dag in the Netherlands, and the 8.3 slightly overpowered, don't know what windstrengt exactly. I felt very well in the hands, lots of control, stability and good speed compared to friends with 8.4 RS4 and to my own 8.4 RS Slalom.

Hi Remi,
do you think the CR2 is fast as well as RS6/R ?
Explicit question for explicit answer.....
Thank you

Hi G,

I try the Code Red R2 against the RS6, not yet against the Rs Racing. This the main diffrence :
Code Red is a lot lighter in your hand. This is really exeptional for the manoeuvrability and your back.
The cam ratotation is really snooth, you don't need to kick the sail.
Both sails are really stable, but the CR is more nervous in the accelearation and the top end speed is more easy to get. Both sails are really quick, the level rider will make the difference.

Lighter racer particulary will love it, due to the extrem stability, cam rotation, very light and fast. This help also the board, a heavy sail kill the performance. For exemple the Code Red R2 9m² is really better than the RS6 9m² on a iSonic 122.

So need to test against the Rs Racing when they will arrive in Martinique. Does they are lighter than Rs6?

All the best.

RE: Code Red R2
No idea if RSR is lighter than CR.From what NP states it's fuller in the bottom and the leech is more opend in the top.It remind me the rs5.Of course I don't know the "inside" specs so it's just an opinion.The camber rotation seems great and,till now,in Formula,they proved they're fast.
We'll see what Wojtek will make.Some Brazilian in Calema reported that his CR was fast and easy but no idea about his placement.
I'm courios to know why Severne does 11,6-11,0 and 10,0 and doesn't use a mid size like 10,,X . Same thing in the middle of 7,7 and 6,7 . It seems that lack the sail for 101!!!

Thank you kvda

RE: Code Red R2
I am not a Severne user, but this puzzles me too... 0.5 - 0.6 sq. mt. gaps between smaller sizes, then that big gap from 6.7 to 7.7 right in the middle of typical medium wind slalom sizes, and 0.6 - 0.7 again between the light wind slalom sizes.
I am waiting for my 6.3 and 7.0 Maui Sails. Did I decide for Severne instead, it would have been 6.1 and then what?

RE: Code Red R2
Hi Remi,
would you please tell us what's the wind range of 11,6 and 11,0 on the 161 ? They seem too close in size but,surely,they behave different....
