Default NCX, X-Type or Hellcat with Futura 93l

Hi all,

I want to get a 2nd sail for use with my Futura 93l. My current sail is a 5.8m F8 Ram and what I love about it is that I hardly ever get over powered with it thanks to the cams and stable profile. The cons with this sail though are that I can't sail for as long because it's much heavier than an RAF and getting jibes round is also more difficult due to the added weight.

For this reason I want to get a fast RAF sail for lighter conditions. I'm debating between a Severne NCX (6.5m), Neilpryde Hellcat (6.7m) and North X-Type (6.6m).

I read in Windmag that the Hellcat has the best topend speed but is a bit more technical to sail.

Does anyone have any experience using any of these sails on a Futura 93l?

JP Super-X 106l, North F8 Ram: 5.8m,
175cm, 54kg
