I've tried it with a unifiber 430 and with a tribord 460 mast and couldn't see much difference. On both masts the sail looks OK.

With those masts it's a no go. The way a sail looks is something different then how it works, this sail won't work with those masts.
If you don't want to invest in the right mast, don't go for a high performance race sail. I agree with Philip: at least go for a X6 then. Also Reptile is said to make a good flex top option mast for the RS Racing but I don't have experience with Reptile masts myself.

Rotating of this sail won't be a big issue, due to the self adjusting ultracam.
