You can also look for the RAMF8 9.9. Race-orientated but good handling and better low-end than the pure racesails.

Good luck

Nikos,

With a 520 cm & 75% carbon mast, better go with the Overdrive (3 cams freerace sail) which is more "stranger" mast tolerant. Pure racing sails are extremely mast specific (bend curve, carbon content, diameter, etc...), so I would better avoid a bad match with your mast.

What is your boom maximal lenght (to choose between Overdrive 10 or 11 m2). Carbon or aluminum boom ?

Cheers !

JM

Don't go with the overdrive! F-Ram is the way to go!

It will rig with 3 or 4 cams depending on your preferance. Deep profile for low end power, yet boliko stability, easy handling and almost race sail top speed potential. i have sailed most of the recent generation Warps, and can say that the F-Ram is as close to a user freindly race sail as you can get. The 75% carbon mast will work fine with the Ram.

JJay,

Can you pls comment on the low-end of RamF8 9.9 (approximate minimum wind in knots and rider weight, pumpability of the sail)? And what mast is better 490+XT or 520?

Brgds,

OK, then an Overdrive 10 m2 should be fine with quite a short boom lenght (249) that makes your boom probably stiff enough. If you want an Overdrive 11 m2 (boom lenght 264 cm), your boom is not long enough : only 6 cm left is too short to make it stiff enough, you'll need a longer and stiffer boom (better in carbon IMHO).

The North Ram F8 sails require quite a long boom without a dropped clew, however.

Cheers !
