I’ve got a NoLimitz Sumo mast 400 and I’m looking for a wave sail between 5.0 and 5.3. Does anybody used a similar combination? I’d like to have any reviews or recommendations about it. Thank you.

There are probably well over a dozen brands that will work with the NoLimitz Sumo. I can use the 400 Sumo with both Naish Force 5 & Sailworks Revo but I have also rigged a friend's North, now Duotone sail with it as well. The Sumo is a little heavier & stiffer than the NoLimitz original skinny so it depends on how you like your sail to feel; softer or stiffer. The great thing about the NoLimitz is you can mix & match the Original & Sumo. For Naish I rig Sumo top with Original bottom & for Sailworks I rig Sumo top & bottom to get the feel I like, which isn't necessarily the feel everyone else will like.

Thank you for your feedbacks
According from a salesperson: “The issue with the sumo is that it is both flex yay the bottom and the top…it tries to be all things to everyone and thus compromises with every brand. It claims it’s compatible with every brand, but In essence is not compatible with anything really.”
I know the Sumo is compatible but it seems that its unusual strength and flex could be a problem with the sails ideal rigging setup.
So so far Sailworks and Naish Force might be ok.
I was also told that the best match would be the Goya sails.
Does anybody rig any Goya sails with the Sumo mast?

Depends, is said salesperson trying to sell you sail, or a new mast as well? Snide aside, you could take a shortcut and consider getting what Dana Miller rigs. You' can't get it more right than he does IMHO.

Thanks for honest feedback again.
I have researched and asked a few places about it and I came to a conclusion that the Sailworks Gyro is actually the perfect match for the NoLimitz Sumo mast. I just purchased one and I will share my my reviews when I’ll be able to try and find the correct rigging adjustments.
Here’s the link to the sail. Click on specifications for the details.

You’re welcome,I don’t sail real waves much and forgot about the Gyro. My daughter seems to do fine with the sumo masts.

Great pick, especially if you like to "fin down". Only reservation it's a four-batter at 5m^2. I'd be curious how stable it feels. Still I'd probably pick it over a Naish Force 5 which has too much low end for my taste. Bummer Naish discontinued the Session. Enjoy!
