Infinity 65

Post by deckchair » Tue Oct 22, 2019 12:12 pm

so i have a warp speed 65 which is brilliant fast and grippy in turns but you need to be committed to get the best out of it. I also have a Infinity 76 which again is brilliant smooth ,fly's at really low speed but is only used with my bigger sails. The question is, do i sell both these and get a Infinity 65

Why do you use the 76 only with big sails?
I tried it with 4.7 and loved it.

yes i have been using the i76 with smaller sails but powered up (able to water start!!!) . When i start to bear away into the gybe its got a tendency to spin out , a bit like top gun to go into a flat spin :lol: . by which i mean that the stabilizer wing starts to slide. With the warp speed it tracks well but doesn't keep me flying nearly as long to complete the gybe. so my thinking is the i65 gives me a little of both

I span out on the i76 last week when well overpowered on a 5.7. I thought the foil had fallen off! Its only happened once though (but I havent tried many gybes). I would put much more value on the wind minimum to get up and going so would definitely keep the i76.

A friend of me had a bit of the same problem and made himself a longer fuselage. That made his foil a LOT more stable.
Bassicly it is just an RVS profile where you drill some holes in so no rocketscience

well swapped the wings over from the i76 to the warp speed at the weekend . I was on the 4.7 what a difference suddenly the foil was tracking in the gybes and the skills i learnt using the hang time of the i76 fed straight back into the warp speed . I am using an old starboard (155 i think) and my next job is to change the front foot straps . push them more inboard and angled more rear wards instead of outwards. the i65 is on hold.
