Hi BelSkorpio, IMHO the batten tension has little effect on bend curve. Most of it comes from the sail shape and wind pressure, I believe. But it brings some tension in the sail body which may affect responsiveness. Just read in test reports that NP integrated clew also require outhaul adjustments for max wind range. Nothing magic, seemingly...
