Gaatra GTX 7,5 was tested in latest Windsurf Magazine (May 2008) and recieved top scores, congratulations.

In the test article it was suggested that cams should be popped on after full mast insertion. The major thing I've previously heard about GTX rigging is that the mast should slide through the cams while rigging. What is the correct method, putting the least stress on luff and cams?

In fact, for nearly all freerace sails in the test it was suggested that cams should be popped on (GTX, V8, Naish SL, Naish Redline, North RAM, North S-type, Severne Overdrive). Only sail where mast was suggested to slide through cams duriing rigging was the Tushingham Lightning. Seems odd....
