Hi BelSkorpio,

Recently I've heard a few guys saying that batten tension is not that important (seen that written on this forum as well). It shall be strong enough to remove wrinkles and that's it. In my shop they even advise to keep them slightly loose. Therefore I wonder if the position of the tensioner makes a big difference, moreover close to the boom. OK maybe the Reflex is designed to work with big tension but I guess the foot of the batten is so stiff that most of the S-shape is given by the cutaway. Does anyone know what the rigging instructions tell about battens?
