Default RE: F-Type 158

That's great that you like it. I have an F-Type 148 and love it. Yes, a harness is a must for a sail that big. Also, make sure you are giving the 9.0 enough downhaul. I use a crank so I don't hurt my back. Before I used to downhaul my 9.8 enough, I would have plenty of low-end grunt, but when the wind would pick up, I would easily get overpowered. Now, the sail has tons more range.
