You really need to try the KS3... None of the sails on the list are remotely similar.

I have been out on the 5.8 Spider twice now and really like it - very light, very powerful.

I liked it so much I treated myself to these.

5.2 Spider and a nice, new 4.6 KS3

In a change from the usual lack of any wind when buying new kit I have put my back out instead...Can’t wait to get on the water with them!

I have to say i'm surprised at how much power they give, for the cut of the sail.

I haven't used it for foiling yet but may try tomorrow.

That orange and yellow is the ugliest thing I ever did see. Toss it in a wheelie bin. PM me coordinates then.

Lovely bit of kit .

Funny, I was expecting the power - but was more surprised by the stability...

As an update we now have gone all KS3.. (still got the Bolt 6.5 for foiling in the light stuff)

4.0. 4.6. 4.9. 5.2. 5.8.

Kind of weird size spacing but that should cover me & Mrs Wully nicely 😎

I’m very impressed with these sails after being concerned they’d get blown out of shape when overpowered having only 3 battens but this isn’t the case.

I’m surprised there aren’t more on the water here. The UK importer doesn’t seem at all ‘dynamic ‘....
