I need a new small sail, (that's not trashed). Anybody got one, or any well informed opinions/favourites that they would like to offer up. Thanks in anticipation.

Gavin,

I forgot to mention, I actually have a perfectly serviceable modern 4.7m sail that rigs great on a 430.

It's an Arrows Craze, a fairly basic freeride monofilm sail, from 2002. If you want something that works fine, is nicely tuneable but isn't a bulletproof wave sail, it'll do the job well.

I can sell you it cheap for two reasons.
1. The headstrap is broken. Storrar can probably sew on a new one for under £20.
2. There is a small tear in one of the panels but it's only an inch long and not in a critical seam so I would expect a bit of clear tape stuck over will last along time.

It's rarely seen the sunlight (it's usually cloudy in 4.7m weather) and I've had it since new so I can vouch for the integrity of the monofilm.

I'll give you first refusal on it. I can bring it to the beach the next time if you want a look at it.

Incidentally I found this info to further support the lightness of the Loft if you err to this option, this is a comparison of Loft competitor weights from a recent Planchemag test:

O2 Freeride Concept 6.6 4.17kg
Gaastra Matrix 6.5 4.3kg
Gun Flash 6.3 4.4kg
Naish Evolution 7.0- weight not found on website
Pryde Saber 6.7 4.4kg
North Crossride 6.6- weight not found on website
Severne NCX 7.0- weight not found on website

Lip Wave Concept 5.2 3.42kg
Aerotech Phantom 5.3 3.71kg
Arrows Flight 5.4 3.5kg
Gaastra Poison 5.4 3.7kg
Gun Wave MC 5.3 3.9kg
Naish Force 5.3- weight not found on website
Pryde Search 5.4 3.60kg
North Duke 5.4- weight not found on website
Severne Blade- weight not found on website
Simmer Crossover 5.3- weight not found on website.

Having said all that, the Arrows is lighter still although not as robust, obviously.

This time I nicked the stats that some sad bugger had put together. Actually maybe that's not fair, it was actually Monty Spindler!

What 4.7 did you get, Gavin? Did you happen to get the 2004 Loft Lip that Surfstore had on a bargain offer?

I ended up gunning for a 04 Gun Wave MC, took on board your comments about a 4.5 being to big a jump and got a 4.7. £190.00 and free postage seemed to good a deal to turn down.

Gavin did you get free postage? It was supposed to be over £200 order so I've just bought a Target 5.0 and as it was under £200 I did not ask for free postage. If you got free postage it looks like I made a mistake.

By the way  looking out for 400 or 430 mast 45% plus, anyone got one on offer? If so how much, age & condition.

Peter, I have a 430 for sale. Tush C45. Condition excellent but the sale depends on whether or not I get a skinny in that size. If you offer me a good price. . .

Free postage was asked for and was given, their mistake perhaps ?
