I sailed the Zephyr with Ezzy 430b+490t and it was great. Can't compare to how it'd feel with 460b+460t because I didn't have those mast sections when I demoed the Zephyr. I can tell you that I have ...

I've never been in a serious accident so I have not experienced a "need" for 25 years wearing a bicycle helmet, 29 windsurfing seasons wearing a life jacket (on flat water), or at least 43 y ...
