Bought 2nd hand from North Sails teamrider in October 2011Thorsten Luig, together with a Warp 8.6 and matching masts.
After a year of training my level is now high enough to be able to gyben well with the Warps, in addition my 7.0, the 7.8 and my 8.6 form a nice set with a perfectly large difference.
Personally, I liked the 2009 and 2010 more beautiful in color, which Yellow/Black striped I don't like.

Rigging is pretty easy. Although the 7.8 must have a 38 to 40cm extension. If you don't have much downhaul and full outhaul, the cambers will be right there. I don't find beatings completely easy, I like to push the cambers off the mast before I beat up, but because the top 2 cambers don't have a zipper, I can't.
If the trim is in good condition, the cambers handle very nicely, neatly from above after the bottom they fold over when there is pressure in the sail, not a very hard blow, but more 2 to 3 small taps, you don't notice that top camber.

The Warps are very fast, if I'm not on the water soon it's just me, not this sail.
What is especially striking is the acceleration after a gybe: great, you will be back at high speed in no time.

Replaced by an F2014 Warp, so it sold.

In terms of length, there could certainly be a 490 in it, but North and especially the team riders mainly advise to put in a 460 with a long extender. I've sailed it with a long extender so far, but I'm definitely going to try a Xtender.
