Hi Michael,

One realworld advantage of the OverDrive is a very wide tolerance on mast tuning (much more so than Code RED or other super race specific sails). I've not tried the exact combo you specify, but the use of the tip extender on the 490 will help soften the overall mast curve just a little, which in turn will tune the sail a little softer in the leech ; less grunty and a little more top end. For a light to mid weight rider on an already grunty sail, this will not normally be a negative And actually could be a positive.

Cheers ~ Ian
