Thanks for your reply, the sail I'm actually considering (and therefore why I'm inquiring about this) is the HSM Smack from 2007 in 5.3 as a medium to high wind sail.
I noticed that this sail only had 5 battens compared to a freeride sail I saw which had 7. I figured I would opt for the smack as it is, from what I've understood, virtually indestructible and in the conditions I plan on sailing it in crashes will be imminent.
Also, I'll be jumping with it so having a wave design will probably help.
