Cross-ply in a 9m sail?? does that work? does it make it very, very heavy?

first question, no x ply is not heavier than monofilm.

rtz, older 9.0 freespeeds perform better with larger masts.
newer can do well with 490 masts with epic gear, powerx bends.

i tend to use mine into a wider range of wind than most, and perfer a chopped down 520. 514, to be exact. it's an old pryde x-9 with 6cm chopped off the top. perfect for my tastes.

Monofilm and xplycome in thickness.
Xply is 2 or more layers of mono glued together , with crisscross Kevlar or carbon in between.

Then thickness determines in the weight. Not which material

I have a 10.6 with a full carbon boom and 100% matching carbon mast (520 I think) that I purchased in 2007 The sail is a 2007 and has the specified 100% carbon mas with a full carbon hawaiian proline carbon boom. My wife passed and we had to sell the lake house so I only used them once. they are all in perfect condition. If you were interested I would let them all 3 pieces go for $300 but you would have to pay shipping. It was a very powerful sail.

the sail is a 2007 neilpryde v8 10.6m

the mast is the matching neilpryde matrix x6 required by manufacturer and the carbon boom is a hawaiian proline. They are located in the boston or southern nh area . . All pieces have little to no use.
