How much of a difference?

Is it worth $2000 for an F-30?

Thanks

Hi, is it worth it? Really hard to answer. It cost me $1250US from Hyde sails. To me it's definately worth it. I can't give you exact exact numbers to prove the difference but at a guess im one to two knots faster from 50 degrees to 120 with apparent upto approx 12 knots. I'm happy enough to spend more money exploring furler options to make it quicker and easier to deploy. I used it yesterday and had one of my all time best sails. Resonsbly flat water, good beam on wind and a current helping, everthing was contributing to great sailing including the jibtop. Sailing 8+ for hours, dosent get better for Freeform.
Cheers Dale.
