Poll: New neilpryde RSS/ RSR sail or not?

Poll: New neilpryde RSS/ RSR sail or not?

I don't know what to do... These things are on my mind:
  1. That 5.5 RSSlalom MK3 is awesome, BUY another!!!!
  2. The 6.7 RSR Evo1 has a incredible high end!!!
  3. I feel the 6.7 might have some shortcomming in ultrahigh speed 40kn+++
  4. The 7.0 RSR Evo2 has incredible low end!!!
  5. The 6.2 RSS... would it be faster? I can sell my 430 X9= $$$
  6. The 6.2 low/end is quite good... Maybe as good as my current 6.7
  7. The 6.2 RSR Evo2 proven concept...
  8. Noo time before competition to tune a new sail

What should I do??? I am very curious what you guys would advise. I can't buy all sails, but one sail is possible. Please click and help me out! If you have some time it would be nice to read why too.

    Hi Eric,

    Replaced my RS-racings (Evo I 6.7 and 5.8) by RS Slalom MKIII's (5.5, 6.2 and 7.0) and never felt a moment bad about it. When you have money for one sail and mainly want to use it in combination with your speedboards I would go for a 6.2. In addition, when you use the MKIII's in combination with a X9 the difference with the EvoII's will be very marginal. So from a price point of view the MKIII is more "value for money".


    Cheers,

  2. Thanks Nico!

    I also haven't had a bad session with the new RS:Slalom MKIII 5.5 which I own now. And a 6.2 seems to be with little wind as quick as the 6.7 I own now...

    Cheers,

    Erik

    Unfortunately I am not living in the Netherlands anymore otherwise you could have compared my 6.2 and 7.0 vs your 6.7. This would maybe help making your choice.....
    I know you are sponsored by Kater so you probably get a reduction on the sails. If not you can save some extra money by buying the MKIII in Germany. Compared to the price for a 6.2 in France I saved 245,- euros (transport included). For the Netherlands the difference is I think a 100,- euros less.

  4. Thank you for the tip, I just asked what a RSSlalom would cost me @ www.Kater.nl

    I know there can be a difference in new price of gear between different shops/countries. But I will buy my gear @ Kater since they support me on all aspects, not only reduction of the price. They also give me a lot usefull information, long ago they adviced me to go for RS:Slalom. Now I wish I listened earlier...

    Also the Kater team is quite good and helpfull for everyone with a stuff bought @ the kater shop. I have no problems to do sometimes fine tuning for a customer @ the beach.

    Cheers,

    Erik

    Happy to hear that there are shops like Kater that are good and helpfull to the costumers. When there was a shop like that close to Montpellier I would also buy it there even when buying via Internet would be cheaper. Unfortunately there isn't...
