What he said. There's little worse that "upgrading" into gear you don't like as much as the equipment it replaced.

If you really want to upgrade, go Sailworks! ;-)

Do you really want to go there? Spennie might have out of line with his comment to folks stoked about Ezzy sails, but that's no reason to suggest that Sailworks is offering a less worthy or an undesirable product.

Ezzy's are so durable, they seem to last forever. I have had several over the past 7 years, and none have ever torn or destructed in any way. I like the lighter feel in Ezzy's newer sails.

Hey UncleRandy
I've been going from 6.9 to 5.8 Ezzy for the last few years and found it the perfect set-up. Smaller sizes= smaller size differences.
