Make sure you have the correct mast for those too.

I used a Nolimitz on a 4.2 NP Alpha and it stunk.

If you have Nolimitz masts I would look for another Sail brand.

Although! I am not really heavy at 155 lbs. I believe you are bigger, which could make a significant difference in mast choice.

Try it first if you can.

im definitely bigger, theyre a special order thing, and will possibly be sold out before they actually arrive. Ill probably just go with NW since a used set of sails is about as much as one carbon mast

Mike, the NP sails are designed around the NP RDM masts which are at the extreme spectrum of the flex top style mast. In the past we have tried to rig the NP sails on other brand masts and it works okay but not stellar. That is why we have NP masts in our rental fleet, just for the NP masts.
For most other brands of sails the NoLimitz Skinny works well though for your size I would suggest going with the Sumo. It's slightly stiffer and works better for heavier riders. Call or email me if you want to discuss it further.

Swap meet, NoLimitz, excellent condition, one owner: $35.

(Don't even try to engage me in a conversation before 10:00 AM at swaps.) Wink

Thanks Joe. That probably why there is such a surplus of NP sails and why they are so cheap..Ill see what comes up at the swap meet and we can talk gear soon (are you tired of that trifin yet? Very Happy )
