Big difference, but the speed and the stability is worth it.

have fun,
ciao michal.
I tried it out today and I felt the contrary. This sail, despite the low wind, had a lot of low end power and during the one good gust accelerated super quick to fantastic speed. Definitely more difficult to tack, and impossible to do a light wind jibe on (106l just sink when rotating the sail), but was fine during the one carve jibe I did. I think it will be great for straight line blasting.
