Arrows Dragster 8.5
In January 2005 2nd hands bought fromVan Bellen
theT-Force 8.2I thought it was too heavy. That's why I sold it. I actually wanted an 8.5 and then a7.5 freeridein between. I already had aArrows 100% 490 mastand a boom to 240.
I'd love a North, but I'd have to buy another mast and a longer boom. And then there was actually no suitable North 8.5. So it's become this one.
This sail is fairly easy to rig up, mast has to go through the cambers. Pressure from the cambers is not too high, but the top camber does jump off quite easily. Making sure you mount the boom on it early and thus tighten the outhaul well helps a lot.
This sail is pretty fast. Have even ever59.1 km/hbrought with you.
Sail is also very good with an outhaul trim set to trim.
Compared to all the other 8.0+ sails I've sailed and tested so far, this one clearly has the best combination of speed, handling and trim range
After purchasing myC2 9.5I rearranged my quiver. I have aDaytona 8.3and sold it together with myUltimate Race 490.
