Default RE: Brand question


I sail with 6.7 and 7.7 Code Reds and I had the chance of trying the new Vapor 2007 Slalom Sails (Ross Williams -gaastra top team member- was in Buenos Aires with his new sails)
Both sails exels in performance and are much lighter in your hands than North WS or NP RS6. with similar top end speeds but broader range.
I like more Code Reds because of some details:
1- Slightly softer feeling without sacrifying speed and acceleration
2- shorter booms for same size
3- perfect cam rotation (after tuning cams)
4- adaptability to older masts (Vapor smaller sizes require RDM new masts as recommended by gaastra)

I hope this will help you take a desicion


The chassis:
Isonic 2009 122/101/86 , F2 Mauiproject W 90 lts

The motors:
