Default Futura 93 with 5.6 reflex or OD 5.4

Currently I use my Futura 93 '10 with a reflex 6.2. This feels like a perfect combination. I have to try the 7.0 reflex with this board which also shoud work very well. My question however is: How does the Futura 93 work with a smaller sail like the OD 5.4 or Reflex 5.6. Does add more windrange together with the Futura 93?

My specs:
- 100 kg
- recreational speedsurfer
- flat water or small chop on shallow water.

It would be nice if someone has experience with Futura 93 while speeding with sails around 5.5 mtr

Thanks in advance, Hans

I use my Futura 93l 2009 (same shape as 2010) with a 5.8m RAM. Feels fine, though I haven't tried it with anything else.

I used a 130l AHD and an Ezzy Panther Wave 5.8m today. I felt like this combo worked fine.... I think generally boards have much more range taking smaller sails than their ideal sail than taking bigger.

Thanks for your reply Agrelon. What's very interesting for me is what the difference in performance and feeling is between an OD 5.4 and a reflex 5.6. Currently my shortest mast is an enigma 4.30 mtr. This seems to fit perfectly with an OD 5.4.

Hans,
I’m quite a bit lighter then you at around 80 kg. For me, the F 93 will work with 4.5 sails quite well on flat water with small chop. If the water state gets big then 5.0 is the limit. I would say that 5.5 is the best size for my weight with the F 93.

I use a Naish Force 4.5 & 5.0 and Naish Sprint 5.5 & 6.6 with the F 93. The Sprints work better with the board but 5.5 is the smallest size for the Sprint so I use wave sails for the smaller ranges.

I think I just have to give at a try (when wind will come back to the Netherlands at last). I prefer a Reflex 5.6, but this sail needs a 4.00 mtr. So the OD 5.4 is a good alternative with 4.30. Hoping for the 6+ Bft days with gusts 35-40 Kts to follow. Currently the only thing we get is clouds, drizzle and weak winds.
