after having been a loyal user of your designs since 2006, I am waiting for my new Venoms. Will my ‘previous’ masts (latest ’14 bend) be OK with the new sails? 100% OK, or …?

I also am curious as to which masts would be compatible
with your new sail line. The maui sails masts seemed to be off
in the corner from the common stuff like Power x and Nolimitz
as far as mast bend is concerned.

Geo, your masts will still work well with the Venom
Tuna, our masts fall into the constant curve classification, with bottom percentage ranging 63 to 65 and top percentage 74 to 76. With the wave sails, you should experience good compatibility with many CC brands such as North, Nolimitz, MS, Ezzy, Naish etc.March 21, 2016 at 12:53 pm #4756
How about the Venom mast diameter concerning MS boom front end. Will MS front end fit on mast with out shim?
And can we expect an own S2Maui carbon boom in the future?

The mast diameter is on the narrower side of SDM, but can still fit the mentioned boom head without a shim.
We do plan to offer S2Maui booms and this will be in the works this year.

used my 460 SDM Venom mast yesterday, fits nice, feels nice looks nice and after a short sail it’s still a two piece bit of shiny new kitJuly 7, 2016 at 7:56 am #4856
Hi, is there a rigging manual online? I am using a cc 370 rdm 100% mast on my 4,6 dragon, and in lighter winds i trim it with as little looseleech as i can get away with, and as little outhaul as possible on this sail. People say that this is a quickplaning sail, but i experience it more as a very flat highwind sail that feels exeptionally light but has no power at low speed and only powers up well at speed. It woud be nice to have a little movie that shows what happens with different kinds of masts and different kinds of settings. Thanks, PaulJuly 13, 2016 at 1:03 pm #4862
Please let us know what type of 370 you are using and that can help with some tuning recommendations.
We are working on some sail model specific tuning videos, but in the meantime, feel free to send some pictures of how your sail is setting up with your mast. A photo looking up from the tack is good, as well as a second photo looking up the leech from clew to head.

Thank you, your email with rigging recommendations makes a big difference. Indeed i had too much downhaul. And yes indeed it is a powerful sail. My mistake was: i had set the boom at 162 cm (recommended length) and pulled the outhaul untill the clew nearly touched the end of the boom, and then i pulled the downhaul untill it created a nice balance with the outhaul, this balance with this boomlengt creates a bit of looseleech and quite a flat shape. (For many sails this method to start with the recommended boomsetting works nice to quickly find the medium trimsetting.)
Starting from this setting i started to release a bit of outhaul and downhaul to get more power, but i still kept a bit too much downhaul…..
So today i followed your instructions and found that with only a tiny bit of downhaul the dragon gets quite a lot of trimrange on the boom, if the wind drops the boom can even be set at 158 and the battens would still rotate very nicely. No matter how much or little downhaul, the right balance between downhaul and outhaul is allways easily visible.
With some sails it is possible to occasionally trim ‘unbalanced’, this is to keep quite a lot of downhaultension and quite some looseleech and still it’s possible to release the outhaul very much, but in this sail i feel that the outhaul and downhaul need to be in balance, which is good, but it needs to be played with to get to know it when there is no hurry, when there are no waves……
So the constant curve mast works nice in this sail, and it’s not neccessary to send pictures, the full trimrange is there 🙂
Keep up the good work !

Thanks for posting your experience on our forum Paul. I’m happy to hear that it worked out.

I prefer to get my inspiration from genuinely significant phrases said by really great people like вЂњOnly one man ever understood me, and he didnвЂ™t understand meвЂќ, would you know wherever I can find thematic compiltaions of those people?
