However for flight performance they will not compare with The B Pro's.
It's all about the performance of the sail. We have worked allot on the grain direction and panel layout on the B Pros to load the sail perfectly.

What advantages does the grain give you Bazzer?

Surely that is part of... "I understood that it was structural and that stress degradation was built in to prolong the effective utilisation window and to improve interim performance." <grins>

But I've also heard people say that Icarex doesnt strech appreciably so the degradation isn't a problem?

Also as we know the trubulence caused by an uneven surface removes energy from another area such as drive or lift.

I've not a had a lot of time on a pro so wanted to know.

The classic sail seamed to work OK

Of course we do not have access to the testing processes either. I like the JB sails and the initial JB Pro sails but do not have the means to test the relative dynamics objectively.

The last set of 1.5 JMH sails with the random graphic (think Kites on Ice) which are slightly older than the last set of 1 JMH sails (10 years) are unbelievably soft now. It might be interesting to set up some means of comparison... <grins>

('trubulence' and 'seamed' appear to be appropriate if only phonetically)

Like I said, we have no means of objective testing. The spelling is optional, obviously.

To turn The B Pro layout into a Flic Feel was so much fun.
Bazzer


The fun that you bring's us is certainly "due to the blue" of these new revs. ;)
Thank you Bazzer. :)
